    This took me a long while to track down:

    Go to Network Preferences under System Preferences, select Bluetooth from pulldown, click PPP Options, uncheck "Send PPP echo packets".

    This worked for me!

    Sorry for the slow reply - impending fatherhood has cut into my tech support time.

    GotPearl?, Testageorgie - if it's still not working for you, post your connection logs and I'll try to help. You can also check your data settings over at forums.fibble.org - I've got two sets of Cingular data settings posted there, hopefully one of them works for you.

    Re: Use your Pearl as a BT Modem under OS X

    Here is one for you...

    I installed with no problem, but when I clicked 'Disconnect' up top the Disconnect scroll has been going non stop for over 24 hours.

    Is this a problem? How do I get it to stop?

    That happens when OS X's ppp stack gets confused about the state of the connection. I'd suggest rebooting your machine (lame, I know). I haven't found any clean way of getting OS X back to a sane state any other way.

    The way I avoid this is (oddly enough) by making sure I have at least some signal strength when I disconnect - if there's no signal when I click disconnect, I find I wind up with the endless disconnect problem much more often.

    Re: Use your Pearl as a BT Modem under OS X

    Hi ggoodale,

    I know you mentioned before that that rim will need to unlock the 8700g bluetooth dial up networking profile.

    To be honest I'd be happy to connect via usb if that is possible?

    Please advise

    Sadly, I don't believe it's possible right now - there's no Mac USB driver for the 8700 that I'm aware of.

    I'm afraid not. This script only works with the 8100 and 8800 models.

    A bit of googling turns up (assuming you're post-paid and not pay as you go):

    APN: orangeinternet
    Username: user
    Password: pass
