I have a Blackberry 8830 Curve running on Sprint. I have downloaded the most recent Blackberry Desktop Manager 5.01 and the Sprint SmartVue software that is working well to connect the device as a modem in tethered mode.

Is it possible to connect the 8830 as a modem via Bluetooth? What steps are required to accomplish this.

Thank you.
