What do I need to do to be able to "tether" my Windows 7 laptop computer to my Samsung Black Jack 2 cell phone for internet access using a Bluetooth wireless connection?

My Samsung Black Jack 2 cell phone has wireless internet access.

I have heard that I might be able to gain internet access on my Windows 7 laptop by "tethering" my Samsung Black Jack 2 cell phone for internet access using a Bluetooth wireless connection.

How exactly is this done?

Please Note: This question is not a duplicate of the next question that I am about to post, which asks how to tether a Windows 7 laptop to an IPhone using a Bluetooth wireless connection.

So is it actually possible to "tether" my Windows 7 laptop computer to my Samsung Black Jack 2 cell phone for internet access using a Bluetooth wireless connection?

I understand that this is possible with IPhones and it might be possible with some Blackberry phones, but is it possible with a Samsung Black Jack 2 cell phone?

Merete,

These are great instructions.

Would you also be able to post the URL hyperlink that tells how I can "tether" my Windows 7 laptop computer to my other cell phone, an HP Ipaq Glisten cell phone for internet access?

I am an IT consultant and need to be able to "tether" a Windows 7 laptop computer with another user's phone, which is an HP Ipaq Glisten cell phone. This cell phone also has the Windows Mobile OS installed on it.

Btw. apart from: "USB connections will generally be faster than bluetooth" Bluetooth is also more power consuming.

Regarding your last question:

About your device as modem (tethering)

again, USB connection. "Connect your device to the PC using the provided USB data cable"

How can I use the Microsoft Security Configuration Manager to unlock my Samsung Blackjack 2 cell phone so that I can install third party applications?

Whenever I launch the Security Configuration Manager program and change the Selected Configuration from Locked to Security Off, I get a message that says "Sign the CPF required for communication" (see the screenshot).

What do I need to do so that I can turn the security off on my Samsung Blackjack 2 cell phone?

Do I need to download and install one of the SPC certificates shown in the list? If so, which one do I need to download and install?

I need to be able to turn the Security off on my Samsung Blackjack 2 cell phone so that I will be able to install unsigned third party applications that will then allow me to "tether" Windows 7 laptop computer with my Samsung Blackjack 2 cell phone so that I can use the Samsung Blackjack 2 cell phone as a "modem" to establish an internet connection.

Please tell me what I need to do.

I am following the instructions that I have gotten from this website: http://www.corynielsen.com/modifications-and-hacks/unlocking-your-blackjack

have you tried this?

This appears possible without hacking the phone.
You can connect your iPAQ to your computer and use it as a wireless modem to access the Internet:
          * To manage your device as a wireless modem using AT&T Communication Manager on your PC, see Connect via AT&T Communication Manager.
          * To manage your device as wireless modem using MS Internet Sharing, see Connect via MS Internet Sharing.

      Before you set up the Internet connection, you need to make sure your phone service has a data plan and you may need a specific data plan that allows you to use your phone as a wireless modem.

      Before you begin, make sure the wireless service indicator on your phone shows an active connection.
