    Hello!
    I have a bb 8130 Pearl with Verizon. I would like to tether (using bluetooth) my bb to my mac. I found the directions to tethering a bb to a mac online, but it would not work unless I had a tethering plan with Verizon. I called Verizon and they told me that the only Verizon phone that could tether with a mac was a MotoQ. Grrrrr..... Please can someone help me?!
    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. Sorry I tried searching to see if anyone had posted this before, but I could not find an answer anywhere. Thanks so much.

    The rep is correct. Moto Q is the only device suppoted by VZW. If it works for you great if not sorry. You will need the extra tethering feature either way.

    I am fully aware that I will need to pay the extra for the tethering feature, but was wondering if anyone had any luck getting the Pearl to tether with a mac via bluetooth.

    I used to tether my Curve to my OS 10.4 Macbook via bluetooth (with tethering plan). Now I use the latest version of Access Manager via USB. Not sure about the whole "Q" thing or Pearl limitations, but mine worked fine...again, check the mac section of the forum.
