Hi,
I have a T-42 IBM laptop connected with a Bluetooth USB Adapter and would like to "piggyback" and access the internet using my Blackberry 7290. Is this feasable or I should look at other options?
Thanks

Probably not. Blackberry data usually routes via the BB/RIM relay servers, for both e-mail (Enterprise or ISP) and web browsing. There is unlikely to be simple internet access from the Blackberry. But it will depend on what network operator you are with and how they set it up.

Besides that AFAIK only the newest Blackberry devices support DUN (dial-up) profile. The other ones support headsets only.
