Verizon Tethering on Ubuntu working
 
Hi everyone,

It took a few days - but I finally got tethering working on Ubuntu using bbtether v0.3a. BBTether - Easy Tethering for Blackberry on Linux and other Unix'es [Thibaut Colar's Home]

Here are my hardware specs:
Laptop: Acer Aspire One A150
Blackberry: Blackberry Curve 8330 v4.5.0.77 (Verizon)
Linux: Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10 kernel 2.6.27-7
Connection: USB

Instructions:
0. This script requires python, pppd, libusb and the python usb(pyusb) module installed:
sudo apt-get install python libusb-dev ppp python-usb
1. Go to website above, download bbtether.tgz to your home folder, and extract it.
2. Go into the bbtether\conf folder and replace the contents of the verizon and verizon-chat files with the following text:

verizon
lcp-echo-failure 0
lcp-echo-interval 0

#nodetach
#debug debug debug

connect xxx8220;/usr/sbin/chat -f conf/verizon-chatxxx8221;
replacedefaultroute
show-password

user xxx8220;1234567890@vzw3g.comxxx8221; #replace with your phone number
password 1234567890 #replace with your phone number

xxx8217;xxx8217; ATZ
OK AT&F
OK ATE0V1
OK AT
OK ATS0=0
OK ATDT#777
CONNECT
~p

3. Open terminal, change directory to bbtether and run the following command:
sudo python bbtether.py verizon -m

You will now be connected to the internet using tethering. Use CTRL-C to disconnect.

Speed
 
Update: changed speed in the verizon file from 115200 to 921600 and my bandwidth is approx. twice as fast (757kbps).

no luck
 
I followed your instructions and the ones posted on the bbtether site but I continue to get the following error...
Failed finding end of line(timeout) for:
Error: [Errno 11] Resource temporarily unavailable

Any ideas? I'm using a 8300.

Here's what mine kicked out using Verizon 8330, only error I received was with the -f option

About to give up
 
ok I got past the -f error I was receiving. but still getting the.......

PLEASE any help would be appreciated @ this time

I thought it costs money to use the BB as modem.
Since it costs too much, I did not opt to have that service on my account.

Is this a way around that, or what?

Same Problem!!!
 
I'm getting the same message:

********************************************

************************************************** ****



Has this been resolved yet? Is it possible I'm missing one of the prerequisites and I'm not seeing it anywhere? I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 -- I'm pretty confident all the requirements are there.
