Newbie Question: Can you tether an iPhone to a BB to use data?
Here is the deal.....I have resisted, and resisted, and resisted. I feel like it is now time to cave and get an iPhone.
However, I don't want to switch carriers (verizon, now). What I have been able to do in the past (with Windows Mobile) was use Bluetooth to create a Dial-Up Network connection from the phone (in this case the iPhone) to my blackberry to access data.
Does anyone know if that is possible on the iPhone?

I've thought about this too. I have an iPhone and BB on ATT. I only have one sim card / phone number and swap the sim between the two. When I have the aim in the iPhone I can use mywi to make the iPhone an AP for other devices to use the 3G connection via wifi. But I have looked and can't find a way to do this from the BB. So I'm sorry to say I don't think it would work for you.

tmo4ever- the iphone's bluetooth does not work that way
mg48- you should know that this could mean you get hit with high data charges at some point since your data plan will only be for one of the devices and they're device specific.

Great question - I actually have an old iPhone 3GS (jailbroken) that I'm using as an iPod, and I would like to tether it to use data from my At&t Blackberry 9700 on the go. I know the 3GS has Bluetooth, but I have two questions:
1) Can iPhone accept an incoming Internet bridge over Bluetooth?
2) Will iBluever or other DUN settings mgmt app install on iPhone?
Thanks for your input!
