Exclamation can i use my blackberry BIS contract

I have recently found out that it is possible to connect blackberry device(mine being a curve 8520) on to a computer and tether so that you use it as a modem, but I just wanted to know if it was possible to use. My unlimitted blackberry internet service contract to browse the internet and download, I have already downloaded barry( and set it up) and currently working on xmblackberry which I know I will manage in time but I would like to know if eventually when everything is setup whether I will be able to use my bis contract and if yes could someone who has done it already please give me some some steps on how you done it.
All help would be appreciated, and please excuse any typos and grammar issues phones are no substitute for the real thing.

To my knowledge, it is not possible to use the use the unlimited Blackberry contract through the tether. Furthermore, it may be against the terms and condition of your contract to attempt to do so.
Please check with your service provider before attempting this!
