The IP Modem option in BlackBerry Desktop Manager 5.0.1 is designed to permit the BlackBerry smartphone user to use the BlackBerry smartphone as a tethered modem and minimize the configuration steps. This is possible through the inclusion of a modem script during software installation, which provides and auto-populates relevant configuration information to the IP Modem Connection Manager.
To configure the BlackBerry Desktop Manager to use the BlackBerry smartphone as a tethered modem, complete the following steps:
- Click the IP Modem icon in the Main Menu.
- During the initial BlackBerry smartphone connection, complete the configuration step by clicking the Configure button.
- Select the Set-Up Connection option from the Connection profile drop-down list.
- Select the appropriate wireless service provider or select Add customer profile for custom settings.
- Select OK.
- Click Connect.
