Default Blackberry 7130 teathering

Please Login to Remove!

I have the new blackberry 7130 which is EVDO. You are able to teather it with a lap top and use it as a modem. I have tried it and it works great with a pc. I use a mac and i am wondering if anyone knows how to teather it with a mac, i guess all i need is a modem script. If anyone knows anythign that could help please let me know.

Thanks

Tethering on the 7130 works fine on my laptop. The USB cable will charge the battery when plugged in. As far as Mac, contact VZW tech support and ask. They may have Mac compatable access software may be available.

Has anyone been able to do this? I have used the blackberry as a modem with a PC laptop and it is blazing fast. If this were possible with a Mac, that would be amazing.
