I was wondering if you were able to work around this problem because ... BlackBerry Bold forum
I was wondering if you were able to work around this problem because I too am experiencing the same issue. Both the 'Phone Vendor' and 'Phone Model' are grayed out.
Any help would be appreciated.
BlackBerry9000/184.108.40.206 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/173
Hi! Great tutorial!
However, I am struggelning with step 10), when i check the vendor "other" the Blackberry 3G CID1" doesnt show. Instead it says "Verizon Support (PC5220)"
Anybody has a clue whats going on?
This is just what I was looking for!!! Thanks
Just got this to work with ATT Bold 220.127.116.11 and Macbook 10.6.1
Install BB Desktop Manager for MAC.
Go into System Pref - Network
Telephone # : *99***1#
Acct Name: ISPCINGULARGPRS.COM (ALL CAPS)
Password: CINGULAR1 (ALL CAPS)
Click on Advanced
Vendor: Research In Motion
Model: BB IP Modem (GSM)
APN: isp.cingular (lower case)
Is this possible for a netbook and BB Curve 8330? Would I have to purchase one of those little Bluetooth devices that you plug into one of your USB ports? I have seen it done with a USB cable, but not Bluetooth.
flipnaman's info was what I needed to correct the PPP error I was getting when trying to tether through Bluetooth. Thanks!! Does the BB Desktop provide the modem driver to allow me to tether through the USB port?

Great directions. The bluetooth "tethering" works great on my Bold. Thank you very much for posting this.
I've been trying to Tether my Blackberry Bold for a while now. I follow the instructions and still can't get it to work. When I click "connect" it disconnects and says "Could not negotiate a connection with the remote PPP server. Please verify your settings and try again.
Same problem here fefa811 .
First it sais connecting , after 10-20 seconds i am getting disconnecting .
I called up my provider and the bes support company . both fail to solve my problem .
Need Help...So close!!!
I have installed the BB Desktop manager for Mac and changed the settings as listed above on my phone and computer. I click connect and the phone changes to a while screen saying "connecting to desktop" after a long time of trying to connect it fails and comes back saying there is a modem error and check my settings. Any ideas?
How to Tether
These are the instructions to tether a tmobile blackberry bold 9700 to a macbook pro
first start off by downloading a modem script for the blackberry bold (google to look around for the script)
after downloading the script go to your finder click your HD or main computer hard drive place the script inside the modem script folder
now begin to set up the bluetooth connection
for the configuration
vendor = “other” (if there isn’t an option to select “other” the wrong driver was downloaded)
model type = “blackberry bold” (if there isn’t an option to select “blackberry bold” the wrong driver was downloaded)
username = tmobile.com username
password = tmobile.com password
phone number = wap.voicestream.com
make sure both boxes are selected
go to the new modem button on top right bar (looks like a phone)
select “connect bluetooth dun”
Same story for me, minus asking AT&T for help. Thank you so much it works great! I was wondering though, will this cause extra charges or anything like that on my AT&T bill? Thanks again!
