    I have a 8300 [v4.2.2.166 (Platform 2.4.0/73)], thru AT&T. I have upgraded my data plan to include tethering.

    I have a MacBook, (OS 10.5.2) and I am trying to connect via bluetooth.

    I've seen so many different usernames/password throughout the internet, and it still doesn't work for me.

    Can someone help? Is there a step by step instruction available?

    I'd be so ever grateful if anyone could help me.

    blackberry tethering mac tutorial - Google Search

    Check out some of those links, I've never done it myself but I have a friend who concluded his Mac tethering quest by not using bluetooth tethering on the Mac. Some of those links indicate it should work though. Good luck.

    I got my blackberry curve to tether via bluetooth to my macbook pro. I posted a tutorial in the curve forums. Otherwise there are lots of tutorials in this forum.

    Still no luck. I keep getting authentication failures.

    I called AT&T and asked what username and password I should be using. They said they don't use them anymore. And that there is a windows based managing program that allows you to tether.

    This is really frustrating.

    Well I found one that might work for you but I can't post a URL because you apparently have to have 10 posts first. Noob fail!

    This was the first site I came across when attempting to first tether. Although very informative, the user is not using the same OS X version I am, and his screen caps don't match mine.

    Shimmer - you have a mac right? Do you have 10.5.2?

    We could always use iChat and I can share my screen with you.... and maybe you can take a look at my settings?

    pretty please?

    with sugar on top?
