Tethering BlackBerry Storm to OS X 10.5 over Bluetooth
2009-03-03 23:16 PST
Finally I can tether my BlackBerry to my Mac and get a connection. Here is the how to.
- Pair the BlackBerry to your Mac via Bluetooth
- Set up the modem for dial up using the following settings:
- Dial Number #777
- Account Name : email@example.com (Example: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- password vzw
In advanced setup, under bluetooth Tab choose the following
- Vendor : other
- Model: Verizon support (PC5220) I have also read that the 5320 profile works.
- Enable Error Correction
- Wait For Dial Tone
I have heard reported that if you want to do this via a USB cable, you must go to http://www.vzam.net/ and download the Verizon Access Manager for pairing the Mac with the Motorola Q. Haven’t tried it yet, but I think I will give it a whirl in the upcoming days.
