    Welcome to pinstack. Anyone able to help? There is no software from Sprint available for Mac modem. Have you tried any of the links found here... http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...lackberry.html

    Get the Blackberry 8100 Modemscript. I don't have the link handy but it is posted elsewhere on this forum. I used that successfully to get a Verizon 8830 to dial up with my MBP through Bluetooth. I see no reason why it would not work with the Sprint version. Just enter #777 as the phone number and leave the Password/user name info blank. See if that works.

    I just tried using my MBP using a Bluetooth modem setup (setup your MBP bluetooth to find your phone). I setup a generic bluetooth profile and it works. I used Verizon on my 8830, and suprisingly do not pay extra for their tethering service. Is this a mistake? I don't know... but on my mac, it works great as a BT modem!
