    Default Tether as modem "Sprint" Curve with Mac???

    I've been using USB tethering my Sprint Curve to my Windows laptop for some time now, and have been very happy with it....

    I just purchased my first Macbook last night and am leaving for Vegas next Sunday for work and want to take the Mac instead of the Windows laptop...but I can't without tethering capability...

    I've been doing research and it appears I can only tether via bluetooth is this correct?

    If so, all of the tutorials and instructions I have found are for Cingular, AT&T, and Verizon...nothing for Sprint...

    Anyone know of any links to tutorials for a Sprint device?

    Thanks in advance for any help you guys can offer...

    Here you go... Sprint Instructions
    Its for a 8830 but I would ASSUME it will work for a Curve as well. The fundamentals should be the same.

    I've followed every set of directions I can find and nothing seems to work.

    I have Sprint, BB8830 and a MacBook Pro.

    Default Try This... It's working for me right now.

    So I found the instructions that actually work. It walked me through it, with screenshots, and I'm using my Curve 8330 from Sprint as a modem on my 2007 model Macbook Pro running OS X 10.5.

    This works guys.
