Default Need help! - struggling to tether Blackberry Bold to Macbook Pro on Orange UK

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I have been trying for a very long time, with no success, to tether my blackberry bold to my macbook pro via bluetooth.

I am on the UK Orange network (on an unlimited data plan) and use OS X 10.5.8.

I have tried Generic, Blackberry 8800, and "Blackberry 3G CIDI" modem drivers, with a combination of different numbers, usernames and passwords.

I've tried *99# and orangeinternet as the phone number. In generic, where it is possible to enter the APN, I have entered orangeinternet.

Almost every time I get the message "Could not negotiate a connection with the remote PPP server. Please verify your settings and try again". Each time the phone and the mac are able to talk to each other, but they give up at the end.

Any help would be hugely appreciated.
