    TetherBerry is proud to finally announce the first and only USB Tethering solution for the Mac with your BlackBerry! We invite you to try out our beta, at no charge until we launch our release candidate.

    Simply follow the instructions below:

    1. Download TetherBerry to your Mac by clicking on the link:
Leopard Mac Version: http://www.tetherberry.com/d/TetherBerry.dmg
    (It is known to work on Leopard and will be supporting Tiger soon.)



    2. Run the setup file and install our software. Make sure to set your TetherBerry adapter to run in DHCP mode,

    3. Download our BlackBerry software by opening the following URL with your BlackBerry device, from the browser:
http://tetherberry.com/d/tetherberry.jad

    4. The first time the TetherBerry application is run on your phone you will be asked what type of connection to use. Please try Default first as this works for most of our users. If you are having problems connecting you can change the setting through the menu to be Direct as this is the next best option for most people. As a final resort, try the BES/MDS option.

    5. You should be asked to plug in your BlackBerry to your PC, if you haven't already done so. If you have a password set on your BlackBerry the software on the PC will ask you for that password. You only have 10 attempts!

    6. You should now be able to surf the web. Please turn off any bandwidth consuming applications like BitTorrent to ensure high speeds.

    7. If you are seeing an error for "Tunnel Failed", this means you need to set the correct APN and make sure all permissions have been granted to TetherBerry on your BlackBerry device.

    So you have to also plug this into a PC to get it to work on the Mac??? Doesnt make much sense to me for some reason.

    Short answer: No

    Long Answer: PC doesn't mean "Windows based machine". PC means, personal computer. Yes, Apple pokes fun at "PC" in their commercials, but really- any computer, whether it runs Windows, Linux, or OS X, technically can be a "PC".

    I had the same problem. I had to uninstall and reinstall a couple times to get the new mac beta to work. So I created an uninstaller. I will post the link below for anyone who wants to download it.

    Disclaimer - By downloading the application linked below you release the creator and host of any damage that my be caused by downloading or using the application.

    I am using a Storm and can connect via Bluetooth. Is there a speed advantage to this? Of course, it sounds interesting, but I want to understand if this is appropriate for Storm users.

    There is also a system extention and two package receipts. I had a hard time finding the system extention so I thought the script would be a little easier.

    Try this. On your BB go to Options -> Memory -> and make sure Auto enable mass storage is set to yes.

    Mine wont work if it is set to no or prompt. It must be a bug. Let us know if that fixes it.

    Hello! I hope I haven't sent this twice!
    I installed all applications, but I get " Failed to load BlackBerry Interface." I set DHCP to enabled, yes to Auto Mass Storage. Also, in my network connections it is saying that I have a cable unplugged. Help!
