    are you crazy? you can't use a blackberry as a wireless router. NOT POSSIBLE. all you can do is tether it to your laptop and get internet access with it.

    unfortunately the touch dos not have blue tooth so the only way you can share your edge or evdo connection is to share it through a mac by sharing blue tooth to your airport connections. I beleive there was a wireless g adapter card for some of the treos but I'm not sure about any blackberries.

    I really hope someone will build a blue tooth adapter that will connect to through :) and support dun. I would buy it in a second !

    signal via bluetooth(wireless headphones motorola,jabra) but they CANT make a bluetooth that acceps signal and then transfers it to wi-fi??? If someone builds this they will be rich.

    seems like it could work. A hack is probably the only thing that will do it though.

    Pretty much any WM6 PDA phone and the Tmobile DASH can do this, from what I've read. So it possible, just a matter of whether the Pearl will let you configure it properly or not; I've not read anything one way or the other about that particular device. Does it have wifi? That would be the bare minimum first requirement.
