    If you have a new Mac, and are on AT&T, you could try running Windows in VMWare's Fusion product (as a virtual machine) and perhaps it would detect the Blackberry and work that way. I have an older G4 PowerBook so unfortunately I can't test this for you.

    Re: Pearl, T-mobile, tethered modem

    Okay, I now have Bluetooth on my ibook g4 and I find that it's different from what's been posted up on this thread. Are there any instructions I've missed on setting the internet up on the Mac using Bluetooth?

    How To - Connect a personal computer or laptop to the Internet using a GPRS or EDGE BlackBerry device as a tethered modem

    Note: Research In Motion provides some support for the tethered modem; the installation of the Standard Modem Driver is supported.
    Quote:
    Research In Motion (RIM) supports the Standard Modem Driver. This driver is installed with BlackBerry® Desktop Manager. After installing BlackBerry Desktop Manager, the modem should appear in Windows® Device Manager. Use the steps below to check the Device Manager:
    1. Right-click the My Computer icon on the desktop, or go to the Start button and right-click My Computer from the Start menu.
    2. Click Properties from the menu that appears.
    3. Go to the Hardware tab in the System Properties window.
    4. Click the Device Manager button. This will open the Device Manager.
    Important: Contact your service provider to obtain the user name and password you require to configure dial-up networking. Also, ask your service provider if additional charges are incorporated when connecting to the Internet using the BlackBerry as a tethered modem.

    Procedure

    A BlackBerry smartphone with tethered modem capabilities can be used as an external modem to connect a computer or laptop computer to the Internet.
    Summary of Tasks
    To set up a tethered modem, complete the following tasks:
    1. Install BlackBerry Desktop Software 4.1 or later (one time only).
    2. Set up the Internet access point name (APN) (one time only).
    3. Configure dial-up networking (one time only).
    4. Connect to the Internet using dial-up networking.
    Task 1
    Install BlackBerry Desktop Software 4.1 or later on the computer.
    When you install BlackBerry Desktop Software, the drivers that allow the BlackBerry smartphone to communicate through the Universal Serial Bus (USB) port and virtual COM port are installed. The Standard Modem, which is used by dial-up networking, is also installed.

    Note: If upgrading your BlackBerry Desktop Software from version 4.0 to 4.1, the required Virtual COM Port and Standard Modem might be removed during the upgrade process. If this is the case, re-install the BlackBerry Desktop Software 4.1 or later and choose the Repair option to re-install these components.


    Task 2
    Set up an Internet APN.
    1. Click Start > Settings > Control Panel.
    2. Double-click Phone and Modem Options.
    3. In the Phone and Modem Options window, click the Modems tab.
    4. Select Standard Modem and click Properties.
    5. Click Change Settings.
    6. In the Standard Modem Properties window, click the Advanced tab.
    7. In the Extra initialization commands field, type the following: +cgdcont=1,"IP","<your Internet APN>"
      Note: The following is applicable for T-Mobile® customers only:
      The extra initialization command is: +cgdcont=1,"IP","wap.voicestream.com"
      Note: If you do not know your Internet APN, or if you do not have an Internet APN, contact your service provider.
    8. Click OK.
    9. In the Phone and Modem Options window, click OK.
    Task 3
    To configure dial-up networking, complete the procedure that is appropriate to the operating system you are using:
    Microsoft Windows Vista
    Click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Phone and Modem Options
    If you are opening Phone and Modem Options for the first time, a dialog box displays prompting you to enter an area code and access codes.
    Windows XP operating system
    1. Click Start > Settings > Network Connections.
    2. Double-click New Connection Wizard. The New Connection Wizard opens.
    3. Click Next.
    4. Select the Connect to the Internet option. Click Next.
    5. Select Set up my connection manually. Click Next.
    6. Select Connect using a dial-up modem. Click Next.
    7. If the Select a Device screen appears, select the Modem - Standard Modem check box. Click Next.
    8. In the ISP Name field, type a name for your connection. Click Next.
    9. In the Phone number field, type *99#. Click Next.
    10. Indicate which users will have access to the connection. Click Next.
    11. Type the user name and password provided by your service provider. Click Next.
    12. Click Finish.
    13. In the Connect window, click Properties.
    14. In the Properties window, verify that Modem - Standard Modem appears beneath the Connect using heading, and then click Configure.
    15. In the Modem Configuration window, clear the Enable hardware flow control check box and make sure none of the other check boxes are selected. Click OK. In the Properties window, click OK.

    4. Click Next.
    5. Choose Dial-up to private network. Click Next.

    Note: During this procedure, do not operate the BlackBerry Browser or any third-party applications on the BlackBerry smartphone. An active data session may interfere with the modem connection. Also, make sure an ethernet connection is not active at the same time.
    1. Connect the BlackBerry smartphone to the computer.
    2. Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
    3. Click Start > Settings > Network Connections > <name of your new connection>.
    4. Type the user name and password provided by your service provider.

    rofl... speed test on tmo tethering. I was bored that day and just wanted to see what kind of speeds i got off tethering to a blackberry 8800.



    Also, yes tmobile in fact will help you tether your phone for you. I called them up one day and ask them about tethering and the csr said that he would just email me out the steps into doing it. 1 minute later it shows up in email on how to. TMO is great!

    Success on my Dell laptop. I feel sorry for all the Mac users out there. Seems like the white sticker they give you with all iPurchases just isn't worth it (though they look really neat on your cars).

    A rep at t-mobile swears to me that this uses only data. No airtime charges.

    This is 100% correct. I am on TMO and have used tethering extensively.

    torrent clients

    does anyone know how to configure bitcomet to stop freezing my connection? I start out fine, but after a couple of minutes, my d/l speed steadily drops to zero, and I can't do anything. I can't find any addresses in firefox, and if I disconnect, I cannot reconnect without doing a battery pull. Any tips? Thanx

    Without bitcomet, does your connection work properly?

    Have you tried some other bitTorrent client... or for that matter any P2P application?

    Have you checked for viruses/malware?
