Hi folks, so if you’re like me, you might find yourself locked away in a high security managed data center somewhere working on a problem with limited network access and no Internet access whatsoever. You run into a problem and you want to use trusty old Google to find the answer. But with no Internet what do you do?
Well if you’re a BlackBerry user, never fear! There is an app called TetherBerry which allows you to use your BlackBerry as a modem and use your data plan for the charges. This is great because it gives you decent web browsing Internet access in a pinch. You could use it for other things but then you might find that a tad slow.
You can download a 30 day free trial from TetherBerry here. I found installation quite simple and was able to get it up and running in short order. If you’re an IT person on the go, you will definitely find this app extremely valuable!
