Set up your Mobile Internet settings
Before you can use your BlackBerry® smartphone as a modem, you must set up your Mobile Internet settings. You select or create a profile that contains the information that your wireless service provider needs to allow the Internet connection. Some profiles have been provided but you can also create a new profile.
- Connect your smartphone to your computer.
- In the BlackBerry® Desktop Software, click Tools > Mobile Internet settings.
- Do one of the following:
- If your wireless service provider appears in the Profile drop-down list, click their profile. In the Profiles Settings section, type any required information that is not included in the profile. For more information, contact your wireless service provider.
- If your wireless service provider does not appear in the Profile drop-down list, click Add custom profile. Type a name for the profile. Contact your wireless service provider to determine the information that is required in the Profiles Settings section. Required information can vary for each wireless service provider.
- Click OK.
