Tethering is not working with playbook + curve 9300

I am having problems with tethering. I have paired the playbook tablet with os 2.0 and a curve 9300 phone successfully (tethering menu) but when I go to the browser on the tablet and try to visit a url it takes forever to show the page. I have a 500mb data plan on the phone.


Any ideas? Thanks.

You need a 1GB plan or higher to use tethering without extra charges. You can use the PlayBook Bridged though. The 9300 is an OS 6 device and has slower modem speeds. You would need to upgrade both your data plan and your BB to gain faster speeds through tethering. EI; 9900, 9810, 9860. Check the hspa download speed specs of the device. Hope this helps.

you DON"T need a 1GB plan or higher to use tethering, I have the 500mb plan and tether just fine with my playbook and my blackberry 85xx phone via blue tooth. I think the 1G or higher was specific to iphones to enable the tethering menu on those devices only.

When you browse the internet with just the curve 9300 is the speed slow...?  I assume this model is the 3G version, but then again 3G speeds really depend on what tower u r connected to and if that tower is congested.
