Bluetooth Tethering a VZW Blackberry on Macs (Broadband)
Bluetooth Tethering a Blackberry for Broadband Internet on Macs.
3 easy steps:
1) You need to have the tether package on your VZW price plan. If you don't, call up to add it to your package. Before going to step 2, *228 your handset to reprogram it.
2) Goto System Bluetooth option and find your phone.. it should be setup as Smartphone.
3) Set up modem for dial up. In network preferences and setup Modem
Dial Number #777
Account Name : <<your telephone number>> @vzw3.com
In Advanced Setup under the Bluetooth Tab choose the following
vendor : other
Model: Verizon support (PC5220)
enable error correction
wait for dial tone
Your all done..
Then from the modem menu just dial..
Your phone should connect over Bluetooth and dial out. Your computer will be online using Broadband Access.
Keep in mind... this ain't the quickest internet access - but it's good for browsing, e-mail, and posting on ::bbos::
Personal preference: I like to keep the Modem icon on the menu for easy access.
Reminder: Don't go crazy downloading large files; all Broadband Access with VZW has a 5GB limit.
