Hi All,
I have MTS Data Card from where I can use internet on my acer laptop by connecting directly MTS data card to usb port of my laptop.
But I want this data card connect directly to my balckberry 8900 curve.
It is possible. because i have unlimited internet plan on my MTS data card and i also enjoy this plan on my blackberry 8900 phone also.
please give me suggestion how can it possible.

The way to do this would be to connect the MTS data card to your laptop, setup your wifi as ad-hoc and then bridge (or join) the connection between the data card and the wifi. This will give you internet from your bb8900 wifi to the laptop and over the data card.

You don't need to use a network bridge. Setup the AdHoc network, then setup internet connection sharing on the laptop. Then go to the wifi setup of the phone and connect to the ICS configuration on the laptop. The laptop will be acting as a router for the phone.

Hope you have Wifi in your Acer Laptop, if so you can use the software "Connectify" and create a Hotspot, from there you can not only share internet to your BB, but also with any other Wifi devices.
On the other hand, apart from the wide range of options in Blackberry, it is pretty much locked unlike Android
hence you can't make your BB identify the Datacard as a valid modem.
Moreover you can't share internet to BB by USB port, on the contrary, you can share internet from BB to laptop using Blackberry Desktop Software.
