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.
  1. Connect your smartphone to your computer.
  2. In the BlackBerry Desktop Software, click Tools > Mobile Internet settings.
  3. 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 isn't included in the profile. For more information, contact your wireless service provider.
    • If your wireless service provider doesn't appear in the Profile drop-down list, click Add. Type a name for the profile. Contact your wireless service provider to determine the information that is required for the profile settings. Click OK. Required information can vary for each wireless service provider.
  4. Click OK.
