    Passkey problem w/ mac

    Advertisement



    I was connecting my bb to my friend's computer, which is a mac. I got a prompt to enter a pass code. She said she didnt have one. I was wondering how i would go about making a passkey for her computer, or what i should do to be able to connect to her computer.

    First of all, multiple posts will not give you a faster answer. What kind of connection we are talking about? USB, Bluetooth? Is the Mac asking for a Passcode, or is the BlackBerry? A little more information will help us help you.

    Re: Passkey problem w/ mac

    Are you trying to do the tethering w/ a BB and a Mac? If so, when you go through the tethering process it'll provide you with the passkey phrase - its 8 digits (I think). Just go to System Preferences > Bluetooth > Devices and Configure.. Its kind of awkward, cause the BB will actually ask for the passkey the step before the Mac gives it to you - just click on the 'next' button on the Mac when you're asked for it on your BB.. (Did that makes sense?)
