Pairing a Mac to a Blackberry
If you don't happen to wander around with an extra USB cable in your pocket, you probably want to tether your Mac to your Blackberry using Bluetooth. Bluetooth allows devices in close proximity to wirelessly communicate with each other. Fortunately pairing a Blackberry and a Mac with Bluetooth is quite simple.
First turn on Bluetooth on your Mac by going to System -> Preferences -> Bluetooth and checking the checkboxes next to On and Discoverable.
Next, in your Blackberry open Manage Connections and click Set Up Bluetooth.
On the Add a Device screen click the Search button.
In the list of discovered devices, select your Mac.
Your Mac and your Blackberry should now display the same number. If they do display the same number, click the button that acknowledges that fact on both your Mac and your Blackberry.
Congratulations! You Blackberry and your Mac are now paired via Bluetooth.
Installing Blackberry Scripts
Unfortunately, the existing dial up networking scripts that are available for tethering out-of-the-box on the Mac will not work correctly with the Blackberry. I tried everything I could think of, and I finally realized that I needed some new dial up networking scripts for tethering to my Blackberry. I have included a link to the necessary scripts below.
After clicking the above link to download the modem scripts, unzip the file onto your file system and copy the included .ccl file to /Library/Modem Scripts.
