    Default Just figured out bluetooth tethering on Mac OS ! LOVE IT!

    So I was looking for a FREE alternative to tether on my Torch. I did not want to pay for a specific app to let me do this

    I decided to google the topic and sure enough, a pdf file with pictures and all instructions...AND listed all carriers for all countries around the work and their apn settings, etc..VERY USEFUL

    So now I'm tethering over bluetooth when I don't have wireless connection on my MacBook Pro on OS X 10.6.6. Absolutely love it!

    Just thought I'd share...

    Thanks!

    [edit]:

    Here's the link to the pdf file

    Speaking of sharing, Marco, care to share the URL of the instructions that you found?

    I know I am a Luddite, but that seems to skip straight through to the free trial of Tether...

    Or you could search Crackberry and read one of the 1,000,256,352 threads on this subject. The nice thing is that setting it up is very easy on the Mac. I've done this for years on the Mac and also on my old Windows machine.
