Unlocking your BlackBerry's capability to be used as a tethered modem lets you create a wireless network using your phone's mobile Internet connection. Apple's iPod Touch has wireless capabilities but cannot connect directly to a mobile network. Using your BlackBerry as a tethered modem lets you connect your iPod touch to the Internet wherever your phone has a steady mobile connection. There are multiple applications that allow a BlackBerry phone to be used as a tethered modem, but not every model supports this feature. Double-check your BlackBerry phone's model to ensure you can use it to power your iPod Touch's wireless connection.
