Default Success!!!! 8700g Bluetooth Modem on TMO

Please Login to Remove!

Guys after at least a ton of tries I am using my 8700g on TMO as a BT modem for my Macbook pro.

I upgraded the OS on the 8700 to 4.2 and copied the script for the 8100 as a BT modem. Followed the instructions and had to modify one thing:

Under bluetooth menu> Sharing> check all boxes on both sides.

The connection will time out after 10 minutes then I have to hit the phone in the upper right hand corner to reconnect. I am new to mac's (just got one today) so I am not sure if I need to make the BT Modem my default connection and just turn on my airport when I need to.

If anyone has any suggestion on how to keep the connection open please let me know.

Major thanks to GGOODALE for the script.

PS My wife helped me out on the settings, Te amo Mami ; )
