THIS TUTORIAL WILL GUIDE YOU STEP-BY-STEP ON HOW TO USE YOUR BLACKBERRY AS A MODEM, USE IT TO CONNECT TO THE INTERNET, AND BROWSE USING YOUR BLACKBERRY BIS SUBSCRIPTION.
STEP 1. Subscribe to MTN BIS with the following code:
BBC to 21600(N1500/month) or BBC WEEK to 21600(N500/Week)
I will advise you to Subscribe to the Unlimited MTN BIS plan. The above subscription can be exhausted.
To Subscribe to the Unlimited Plan, send:
BIS to 21600(N3000/month) or BBWEEK to 21600(N1000/month)
If you subscribe to the Complete Plan, you should always check the status of your BIS for the remaining data.
STEP 2. After your BIS becomes active, connect your BlackBerry Phone to the Blackberry Desktop Manager on your PC. Allow your Desktop manager to detect your device. You will know this when you see your BB Pin displayed at the bottom left corner of your BlackBerry manager. Click IP Modem. Under Connection Settings, Click Configure.
STEP 3. Create a new connection profile using the following details and save it:
- APN: blackberry.net
- USERNAME: web
- PASSWORD: web
STEP 4. Connect to the network by clicking “Connect”
STEP 5. Download the latest freegate from http://us.dongtaiwang.com/loc/software/fg/726/fg726p.exe
STEP 6. Launch this tunneler (it will connect automatically)
STEP 7. Configure your browser (Mozilla Firefox, Flock, Opera, etc) manually with HTTP Proxy:127.0.0.1 Port:8580
Internet Explorer is Configured Automatically.
STEP 8. That’s all you have to do. Start Enjoying your BIS on PC.
ANOTHER TUNNELING SOFTWARE THAT LETS YOU BROWSE ON PC WITH YOUR BLACKBERRY BIS IS ULTRASURF
STEPS 1-4 REMAIN THE SAME AS ABOVE
STEP 5. Download ultrasurf http://ultrasurf.us/download/u.zip
STEP 6. Extract the Ultrasurf and launch (it will connect automatically)
STEP 7. Configure your browser manually with HTTP Proxy:127.0.0.1 Port:9666
NOTE THAT IT DOESN’T WORK WITH BLACKBERRY DESKTOP MANAGER 6.1. YOU CAN ONLY USE V5.0, SO THAT IS WHAT YOU SHOULD INSTALL ON YOUR COMPUTER EVEN IF YOUR BB IS RUNNING ON OS6.
ENJOY CONNECTION TO THE INTERNET ON YOUR PC WITH FREEGATE AND ULTRASURF USING YOUR BLACKBERRY
There is an update to this that works like this too but using different software but it only allows a maximum data transfer of 100MB per day. Of course this is for MTN Subscribers. You should see Etisalat BIS on Computer if you are an Etisalat Subscriber. I will update you on the new MTN settings in a couple of days. If you don’t want to miss it, read on.
