Default leopard 10.5.5 and 8310 paired

Please Login to Remove!

my laptop is a macbook 2.0 ghz 2 gb of ram, leopard os 10.5.5. hand held os 4.5.0.81. the screen shots i took are from the pairing of my mac book and the 8310 curve. the last screen shots it says *Access the Internet with your phone's data connection*. my question is this; is it possible from this screen shot, that you can utilise your bb as a modem allready setup without additional script setup or charger from your provider (as i have read in the forum). since i have no contract and no internet service with my 8310 i have no way of testing this. i would appreciate the feedback

i got a partial answer to my post. i went to my providers local office and they told me that you get extra charger if you use the phones data connection with another browser. however i still don't know if the mac book will use the phone data connection trough bluetooth without additional scripts.

I used the setup guide to get my MacBook tethered to my Bold and it worked like a charm. If you follow the guide exactly you should be connected in a couple of minutes, no fuss/no muss.
