Tethering is not working with playbook + curve 9300

Hi,

 

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.

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.

 

Let us know Smiley

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.
