Hey,

The information you need is for using your device to tether a computer to connect to the internet.  You will need VZAccess Manager software, which is available free from Verizon.  For more information on setup, see http://support.vzw.com/how_to_use/vzaccess_install_setup-3.html

Hope this helps,

Hi,

You can not use a Blackberry device as a hotspot for WiFi.  You can, however, connect to a WiFi hotspot for connecting to the internet.  For an example to connect to a WiFi hotspot, here is a video from Blackberry.  The video depicts a Bold, but the Curve (you did not specify which curve, 9330 or 8530) can connect the same way.  Hope this helps,
