plug your blackberry in
go to system pref.>network
where you see Bluetooth, Airport, etc. you BB should pop up (the name of the BB is your BB's PIN)
it depends on what provider you are with where this may work. I had Blackberry 9700 with Rogers Wireless at the time. If you don't have data this wont work
I click the BB that shows up and go to options. change the vendor to Research in Motion and the band to GSM (default is CDMA) you don't need a pass, user, phone number or anything it acquires it on connect

Yes, you can tether via USB or bluetooth on your Mac, as long as you know the APN login and password for your carrier.
Also, you should check for this setting:
device options -> security -> view IT policy -> view IT policy -> IT Policy Details -> Security -> Disable IP Modem
If this setting is set to YES, then your IT department or your carrier has disabled tethering on your BlackBerry.
Here are the instructions:

I bought the Tether App and installed it on my mac. It keeps quitting on the blackberry with an unexpected error.On the mac the numbers on the packets sent/received go crazy.
I keep restarting the app, and it quits every couple of minutes?
