    It is theoretically promising to use a US Cellular inside the Blackberry 8703e mobile as a modem:

    1. For this you will require for installing the most recent edition of Desktop Manager
    2. Then you will need to generate a fresh dialup account for the internet connection.
    3. Username: 1234567890@uscc (exercise your own number at this time)
    4. Password: 1234567890 (your mobile number)
    5. Number to dial: #777
    This will perform easily to get the access for the internet connection on your laptop via blackberry modem. However, this is not supported by US Cellular and they maintain it is a disobedience of the Terms of Service. I utilize this once and a while, but only when required. The browser on my 8703e works for the majority whole thing I require apart from for my online banking. I have not at all gotten a letter. If you were streaming music, downloading huge files, etc. then you'd most likely obtain the letter from them.
