Default iBOOK connection to internet --> 7100t

Please Login to Remove!

Good Afternoon All,

Can someone kindly point me in the direction of configuring

the network settings for internet using the bluetooth connection between
ibook and 7100t.

i looked around and googled it, but unable to retrieve any accurate instructions.

When setting up the bluetooth connection for the internet transfer to laptop.
1. I don't know which modem to use
2. does the blackberry need to be connected via usb? i would think no, since its a bluetooth connection.

help is much appreciated.

thanks

Sunny

alright i'm going to sound like a prick but use the SEARCH FEATURE here on the site!! You CANNOT use a blackberry, let alone use the bluetooth on the blackberry to connect to an Apple computer and connect to the internet. There is a huge lack of support for BB services on Mac's and connecting to the internet via bluetooth or by the USB cable is one of them. Sorry to put a dent in your hopes but maybe one day. I myself am a power book user with a 7130e with EVDO and can't use it... It's friggin ridiculous!

There is also a Mac specific forum where people complain in every thread about a lack of Mac support.

Eventually our complaints are met though right? Like dual booting etc... hehe Honestly I think if I was to switch to an intel and dual boot I don't know which OS I would use the most... Some media type stuff windows just works better for but yeah umm back on subject...
