BlackBerry software Deal-of-the-Day: TetherBerry



TetherBerry is a simple way to tether your BlackBerry to your laptop. The app involves installing a connector to your desktop, as well as the software to your device.

This app used to take some tweaking in your Internet settings to get it to work, but the latest builds have eradicated much of that. Also, while it requires that you are connected via USB, the company is working on a Bluetooth solution.

TetherBerry is normally priced at $49.95, but it is now available for $24.98.

Canadian charged $85k in mobile web charges


CashmoneyHeh, some poor shmuck in Calgary thought that that his “unlimited mobile web browsing” plan with Bell included tethered connections to his PC. So, after some regular usage, including downloading high-def movies over his KRZR’s connection, Piotr Staniaszek got a beefy bill in the mail amounting to almost $85,000. Luckily, Bell wasn’t completely heartless, and were willing to knock down the charge to $5,000, but that’s still a pretty expensive lesson to learn.

Motorola Q 9h gets BlackBerry Connect


Q9hOne more device has joined the ranks of BlackBerry emulation: AT&T’s Motorola Q9h. What do you have to gain from signing up to BlackBerry Connect? Well, you’ve got three plans available.

*PDA Enterprise Unlimited for BlackBerry Connect – allows unlimited corporate (BlackBerry Enterprise Server) and personal (BlackBerry Internet Service) email plus web browsing and other data usage
*PDA Enterprise Unlimited for BlackBerry Connect + Tethering – allows the above services, plus using the device as a modem for your laptop

We’ll try not to judge you for leaving the BlackBerry while still clinging to the services, but no guarantees.
