Unhappy Need help tethering curve 8330 (alltel) with macbook

Please Login to Remove!

I am a new mac user and have not been able to get my curve 8330 provided by alltel to tether with my macbook, using the curve as the modem. I have reviewed a few posts on other sites that tell me how to do this via bluetooth, but still, no success.

This is what i have done:
(1) Activated bluetooth in curve and macbook and they both recognize one another.
(2) Changed the setting in bberry to ensure that it always trusts the macbook
(3) set up a new blue tooth connection in macbook network preferences with username: [email address], #777 as phone number, and alltel as password.

Then i clicked on connect and it said: "could not negotiate a connection with the remote ppp server. Please verify your settings and try again."

Anyone have any idea how to get this to work?

Thanks alot!
