    Macbook+BB 8830+Bluetooth= internet

    Advertisement



    Just got a BB 8830 with Sprint and paired it using Bluetooth.....when it did its discovery to determine how the Macbook and BB could work together it said 1. Address Book...expected.....2. Share internet connection with mobile phone. Well the pairing was completed and I am now typing this on my Macbook connected to the internet via my BB over Bluetooth.

    Before I got the BB 8830 I thought I read you couldn't do this, somewhere in the specs I think, and I thought I read somewhere in a post someone did.

    Well I did...and am.....and will.

    Nice. I used to do this with my pearl, but have been unsuccessful with the curve so far.

    you need a modem script to enable this. I am not sure how easy it would be to port the one for the pearl over, I doubt it would be easy.

    I tried the one for the pearl, it keeps disconnecting after a couple mins. I'm not knowledgable enough to port the existing modem script so for now.. just waiting for someone else to lol
