    Not sure if you can tether on Mac. Did you try installing the VZ Access Manager?

    Hmm... Wish I could be me more help. PM me if you figure it out though b/c I've been looking at Macbooks. If I can't tether it might be a deal breaker. Did you try a mac genius?

    you have to download the vzaccess manager for mac for the storm... go to vzam.net to download the software. You should uninstall the old version of access manager that you have on your mac as well.

    Yes you can..

    1)You need to have the teather package for 15$ a month

    2)Goto System Bluetooth option and find you phone.. it sound be setup as Smartphone.

    3) set up modem dial up. in network preferences and setup Modem

    Dial Number #777
    Account Name : youtellnumber @vzw3.com
    Example: 2125551212@vzw3.com
    password vzw

    in advance setup underbluetooth Tab choose the following

    vendor : other
    Model: Verizon support (PC5220)
    enable error correcdtion
    wait for dial tone

    Your all done..
    then from the modem menu just dial..

    your phone will connect over Bluetooth and dial out.

    I like to keep the Modem icon on the menu bar above next to the Airport. Just easier I guess..

    I used "saurabbhatia" instructions, you can also find them by using google search. There is a video out there also if you search. I use Bluetooth tethering on my Storm all the time. It is really nice.

    Think this is my first post so bear with me...

    Not an expert, but I regularly use my BT to tether my MacBook Pro through Telus.

    I can try to walk you through it a bit, but feel free to ask more questions.

    Make sure you have set up your Storm in your Bluetooth set up on your Mac (exchange passkey's etc)

    Attached are two files showing my set up. It works great and consistently.

    Good Luck.

    I have been trying to get my MacBook to tether to my Storm for weeks. I constantly get an error that says "Modem errors has occurred. Please check your settings and try again." I am using the setting as outline in this post and have previously had my Curve tethered using these same setting. Why cannot I get this Storm to work? Anyone have any ideas? This is driving me nuts. Why would it work on my Curve and now that I got the Storm it is not working? HELP!

    I got that error before as well when I moved form 8830 to Storm. Delete the older bluetooth Device and then make sure your vender is set to other and choose verizon PC5300

    Make sure you are have the storm set up as Smartphone

    I deleted all Bluetooth devices and deleted all Tether network setups then restarted my MacBook.
    Then I build only the Storm profile from scratch using the setting exactly, triple checked. It is setup as a Smartphone and shows Dialup Networking as part of the Bluetooth profile.
    Still the same errors. Any other suggestions?
