HOWTO tether your Blackberry Pearl (8100) to linux (AT&T or T-Mobile)

Since many of you have likely hit this blog while looking HOWTO tether a blackberry on Linux, it would be kind of me to point you to somewhere you can do this. Thibaut posted a comment on my blog with a link, so I'll share it here.

I've not personally tried this, but this looks solid. Let me know how it goes out there.

HOW setup tethering for Blackberry Pearl (8100) on a linux machine (Thibaut's Blog).

Reminder that if you are connecting to AT&T you'll need to use the modem information below in the etc/chatscripts/blackberry conf (the entry above uses T-Mobile's settings)
Modem Initialization String: AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","wap.cingular"
Dial-up Phone Number: *99#
Dial-up username/password:blank/blank

Tethering a BlackBerry to Ubuntu 8.04 with Alltel.

I followed this tutorial, but I struggled for a while with the pppd scripts due to alltel not allowing APN.

So here's how to get your tether working on Ubuntu if you have Alltel.

1. Follow the above articles instructions until it gets to the section on PPP scripts.

2. Edit /etc/wvdial.conf to:

Modem = /dev/pts/x(this number tends to change)
Baud = 115200
SetVolume = 0
Dial Command = ATDT
Init1 = ATZ
FlowControl = Hardware (CRTSCTS)
[Dialer blackberry]
Username =
Password = alltel
Phone = #777
Stupid Mode = 1
Inherits = Modem0

3. Connect your BB and run "sudo bcharge" in a terminal. If you get an error saying possible Kernel conflict thats ok.

4. Run "sudo XmBlackBerry" then when it finishes it should say "ip_modem.c:NewIpModem [...] '/dev/pts/3'" That last digit may change each time you connect your BB so you'll have to edit the /etc/wvdial.conf file accordingly. Before you run wvdial.

5. Open a seperate terminal and run "sudo wvdial blackberry"

6. Bingo!

Any questions email me chainy1 at gmail

After a couple false starts, I've had this working for several months now. Gentoo -> Bluetooth -> BB 8100 -> AT&T.

It's now stable and reliable. I get about ~100kbps up and ~50kbps down. I have even used rdesktop over mppe ppp to do some emergency work on a Windows box. I'd rather poke a sharp stick in my eye given the slow speed, but it works.

Sorry, that's ~100kbps down and ~50kbps up.
