Hi,

I need 3G access to the Internet on my Galaxy Tab without signing up my Tab with a 3G provider. I was thinking about pairing the Tab with my Blackberry Bold 9700 phone through Bluetooth and using the Blackberry as a Dial-Up Networking modem.

I succeeded with pairing. The BB shows the Tab as a device with Object Push and A/V Remote Control Target services. Under Options, the Blackberry lists more services including Dial-Up Networking. The only two services that are greyed out are Desktop Connectivity and Wireless Bypass. I hope I do not need those.

Please provide instructions how to make my Tab access the Internet through Bluetooth and the Blackberry. Thank you!

I have the exact same phone and thought of doign this as well, but ended up grabbing a quick data plan. Agree it would be nice to do as I now have the hassle of 2 separate bills for Cell and TAB since my provider was not in the first wave of launching Tel Co`s.

If you figure it out let us know, I might then choose to cancel the TAB plan and use the BB data pairing because most times the BB is very efficient on data since it is compressed and I never use my 500 mb monthly allotment.

I tried this without success and as you say the options on Blackberry doesnt take you further, however I have tried to find a way of getting a bluetooth type phone that works like a handsfree kit so that I can put in my 3g blakberry sim to my TAB and then pair a phone via bluetooth< I can pair and use my in ear handsfree earpiece and can use my hands free car kit which both work great this way however I cannot fing a mobile phone that works like a hands free kit as that would allow me to put my TAB in my bag when on the move and answer any calls vis something that at least looks like a phone. Any ideas?

Obviously they want us to buy a separate sim but there must be a solution to this.
