Sharing your mobile network connection using Internet tethering

Internet tethering allows you to share your BlackBerry device's connection to the mobile network with one other device, such as a laptop or tablet, so that you can access the Internet on your other device anywhere that your BlackBerry device can connect to the mobile network.

Additional charges might apply for using Internet tethering. You can't use some services on your BlackBerry device, such as email and BlackBerry Messenger, while you use Internet tethering.
