RANT: By now, I probably could have just retyped everything. I'm almost starting to wish I had just gotten a damn iPhone. As a new Blackberry user, I'd just like to say thank you so very $#!%ing much to RIM for making me feel like such a valued customer and for eating up hours of my time.
I'd also love to know why, in 2008, when the average cell phone has as much computing power as it took to send a man to the moon in 1969 (for reals!) this should be so difficult, but I guess that's too much to ask.[/quote]
So I was working one day, taking calls for Apple technical support, and a customer called in asking if I knew anything about using his blackberry phone as an external modem to connect to the internet. Of course I had to look this up because I was just starting to work in the portable/desktop department.
I found an article for the customer on google because the kbase wasn't being any help. Askdavetaylor.com or something like that, anyways it was step by step on how to use the blackberry as a modem and it also interested me. I went and bought a blackberry 8100. I was thinking that since I worked for apple I'd be able to figure this SHIT out by now. I tried multiple drivers for the blackberry, multiple "scripts" that don't work. I think one was called pocketmac to sync everything. You'd think a direct connection with a USB would work just fine but it seemed to never find the phone. The bluetooth never found the phone either. The phone found the computer, but the computer did not find the phone in anyway shape or form. I'm sure it is some stupid ass preference or driver or setting or advanced options or what ever the hell you wanna call this crap I'm pointlessly ranting away about. I just wish if something was offered out there then there would be betting information on this stuff. Thanks for reading my technical rant
