    Check out the app, Tether. It is a little expensive, but works GREAT!

    Have you ensured you can communicate with your Bb modem? With the BDM running, go to Control Panel > Phone and Modem... > Select modem (generally on Com 6, 7 or 8) > Diagnostics > Query modem. It should return Blackberry strings.

    I know BDM does not care, but you should nevertheless add the initialization string in the advanced tab (same modem popup above) and add this value to the empty field.
    +cgdcont=1,"IP","ISP.CINGULAR"

    Then run the dial up setting (as if you are using a dial up connection) that is created by BDM (will be named something with AT...) or the profile name you chose. Keep BDM running when you do this.

    do not put isp.cingular for the APN!!!! Unless you want AT&T to catch on that your tethering.

    Once you have DM for Mac it installs the right "stuff" to tether using the stock network prefs.

    Get DM for Mac install and run to make sure it works correctly.
    Plug in BB
    Open Network Prefs
    A pop up should tell you a new network device has been detected.
    Select the new device, should be RIM Composite something
    Settings
    Phone #: *99***1#
    Username: WAPCINGULARGPRS.COM
    Pass: CINGULAR1
    Click advanced:
    Find Research in Motion in the first drop down box
    Select the "GSM" option in the second drop box
    use "wap.cingular" with no parenthesis for the APN(access point)
    CID should be set to 1

    Click connect and you should be gold. Every now and again it will take a couple tries to connect
