    I'm thinking about getting a blackberry from T-Mobile, but the answer to this question will decide it for me.

    Can you use it to get a laptop online? Can you use bluetooth or do you have to use a cable?

    I would get the Internet only service because I don't really use my phone as a phone :)eek: ), it's all text messaging and e-mail.

    Yes you can. I used an IT guy's Blackberry to get my laptop online while a new office was being set up.

    Step 2: Convince parents that I need one. Shouldn't be much of a problem.

    If you need to convince your parents to let you get one, you don't need one.

    I don't need one.. but I want one! :p

    On a serious note... I would actually use it enough to justify having one, and my parents know that. But I would still have to talk to them about it.

    Yep. I've done it with my BB Pearl when my oh so reliable Charter cable goes out :rolleyes:

    You use Bluetooth, can't tether with a cable. Works great, although its a bit on the slow side.
