I thought I'd post this, as I've spent a good afternoon trying to get the settings to tether my blackberry!
1) Open Blackberry Desktop Software
2) Click tools >> Mobile internet settings
3) Once the screen pops up, click 'add'
4) Input the following settings
Profile name: whatever you like - i typed Virgin Mobile UK
Password: leave blank
Access Point: goto.virginmobile.uk
5) Press connect
6) The bottom left of the main page should then say connected
Note: The amount of internet you use comes out of your allowance, so if you go streaming videos and
using skype you'll end up exceeding your data allowance and will be charge ALOT!!
Blackberry Desktop software shows the amount of data you have used in the left hand corner along with the
time you have been connected - so keep an eye out!

Thank you for such a clear cut and informative post. Having awoken on Sunday to no Virgin Media internet, and to be told by their Indian Call centre that I should expect it to be out until Thursday, panic ensued! Luckily we were back on line by Monday, but the thought of a recurrence and the realisation that it was possible to tether the BB Playbook tablet via the BB 9300 to Virgin Mobile, thus getting i/net from them instead, drove me to investigate the possibility. Possibility became fact in but a few minutes thanks to you, sugarbabenl. We now have a safety net for the next time our cable connection to the world wide web collapses, and all thanks to you!

Thank you so much for posting your help. I had become exasperated trying to tether my BlackBerry mobile to my PlayBook but with your help I did it in minutes. Thanks again.
