Tether BlackBerry

Introduction

When I wrote my previous post about the tether BlackBerry Storm. I gave you a barry’s configuration
to use your BlackBerry as 3G modem.

Unfortunatly, my settings are now wrong (with SFR) ! Here a new post about my settings and my BlackBerry Torch.

PPP settings

You have to add a new files to set a new PPP service (peer). Read my comments to enable or not the logs.

[root@Dahlia root]$ cat /etc/ppp/peers/barry
#
# SFR Peer configuration
#

connect "/usr/sbin/chat -f /etc/chatscripts/sfrstart"
disconnect "/usr/sbin/chat -f /etc/chatscripts/sfrstop"

# Barry using (uncomment / comment the line to enable/disable the logs)
pty "/usr/local/sbin/pppob -v -l /tmp/barry.log"
#pty "/usr/local/sbin/pppob"

Modem settings

You have to send some AT commands to enable the BlackBerry modem mode :

[root@Dahlia root]$ cat /etc/chatscripts/sfrstart
#
# Some of these options found documented at:
#    http://wiki.colar.net/tethering_with_blackberry_pearl_on_linux
#
# SFR Peer configuration
#
ABORT ERROR

'' AT&F
OK ATZ
OK ATI
OK AT+CNUM
OK AT+CSQ

# Some Blackberries reboot on this command
#OK AT+CREG?
#OK AT+CGDCONT?
#OK AT+CGQREQ?
#OK AT+CGQMIN?
#OK AT+CGATT?
#OK AT+CGREG?

# Choose the good configuration
#OK AT+CGDCONT=1,"IP","wapsfr"
#OK AT+CGDCONT=3,"IP","blackberry"
OK 'AT+CGDCONT=4,"IP","websfr"'
OK ATDT*99#

CONNECT

And :

[root@Dahlia root]$ cat /etc/chatscripts/sfrstop
"" "\K"
"" "+++ATH0"

Using

To use your new peer, you run :

[root@Dahlia root]$ pon barry
