    Post Is there a way to use my BB as a tethered modem on my mac?

    I am always going somewhere with my laptop and I started wondering, is there a way to use my blackberry as a tethered modem without extra software??? If not, is there an easy/free solution?

    Thanks for all help in advance!

    I'm not too sure. I know there is TetherBerry, but it's not free.

    it is what im looking for, but i do have one issue... im a mac user. im not with my laptop so i cant really say too much, but i did look this up before and was confused with what to do to make it actually work. my mac recognized it as a bluetooth network, but failed to do much more than that. can you help further?

    thanks

    Hm, not really sure, since I am (unfortunately) not a MAC user (yet) - with PC/win you just install the RIM modem drivers...but I will try to find some help...stay tuned :-)

    Under network options go to bluetooth
    Telephone number: wap.cingular
    Account name: WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
    Password: CINGULAR1

    Click Advanced
    Under Modem

    Vender: Option
    Model: GSM

    Apply and hit connect
