I'm seeing the same problems as others. After resetting the 8300 (remove/reinstall the battery), I can connect ONCE. On that first connection, I get about 30 seconds of data to transfer successfully and then everything appears to come to a screeching halt. Once I disconnect, if I try to reconnect without resetting the phone, I get around 10 of the these errors:

sent [LCP ConfReq id=0x1 <asyncmap 0x0> <magic 0xdb6e9932> <pcomp> <accomp>]

and finally:

LCP: timeout sending Config-Requests

And then the script attempts to disconnect, which also fails:

Mon Sep 17 23:59:08 2007 : CCLWrite : +++
Mon Sep 17 23:59:11 2007 : CCLWrite : ATH0\13
Mon Sep 17 23:59:15 2007 : disconnect script failed

I do have the unlimited data plan with tethering option from AT&T. I can successfully use the 8300 tethered on the same Macbook running Windows XP Pro (using bootcamp) so I know the phone and data plans are working right.

Hopefully this information will help someone more knowledgeable figure out how to get this working on the Macbook.

Thank you!
I too am having this same problem.

I have a Curve 8320 /w T-Mobile. I'm using the script and followed all the directions (APN, guest/guest, etc.)

I can successfully connect and authenticate and can browse the web on my MBP for about 30 seconds before I get nothing. The connection DOES NOT drop, it just stops receiving/sending anymore data.

To successfully reconnect again for another 30 seconds, I must reset the phone.

Any ideas someone?

If you're using a Pearl, search the forums for information on the TIM Italy firmware release. It gives you most of the good features of 4.2.1 and works flawlessly with tethering.

Sorry, but I don't know anything about O2's firmware for the Curve. If it suffers from the same flaw as T-Mobile's most recent OS, then you're stuck I'm afraid.

Default pearl connection quit working!

I don't think I'm an idiot but I could be. My old pearl worked flawlessly to connect to the internet then my trackball quit working. TMobile sent me a refurb now I can't get it to work for the life of me. It connects for a minute then disconnects. Come to think about it my internet is significantly slower on my phone since I got this phone. My software is v4.2.1.107 platform 2.3.0.83. My Mac is running 10.4.10. If any one has any suggestions let me know.
Thanks
Mark

The new T-Mobile OS for the Pearl has a known issue with tethering to a Mac via Bluetooth. There's no fix at this time.

Is there any way to go back To the old software?

Yes, detailed in several places around the forum. A quick search should turn up the relevant posts.

Would you perhaps provide a link and/or specific OS version number? I'm not trying to be lazy, just not finding what I'm looking for... anywhere...

Wonder how I missed that...

Have you tried the .168 version or just .102?

If anyone is wondering, .168 didn't work for me, but .102 works as advertised, for now. Thanks ggoodale. I guess this is the last time I'm changing OSs on my Perl.

Default My SpeedTest

I finally got it connected. I'm an idiot. I keep trying to connect high speed on my settings but once I switched to dial up it worked fine.

I did a SpeedTest from SpeedTest.net and I'm on T-Mobile with the Blackberry 8100 and these are my results:



Download: 332kb/s
Upload: 10kb/s

I can't complain. That's around 6 times faster than a dial up connection. The thing I'm amazed at is now I can connect where ever T-Mobile does. So fetching sweet.

Duplicate post, but I wanted it in this sticky:

Finally got my 8130 pearl to tether with my leopard mac using Verizon as well. Took me 3 days of messing with it.

I installed the script as listed elsewhere on the forums. Then paired the bluetooth. The next trick was the settings for the bluetooth device.

When I go to configure this device, I get the option to use connect to the internet with your phone's data connection- that's checked. No other options.

For phone vender, I have no verizon option. Also, no RIM option with this script- the old script gave that option. I chose "generic".

For model I have the following options: bluetooth LAN access, dial up device, or GPRS (GSM/3G). I used "dial up device"

username I have my
password: vzw
phone number: #777

Then I restarted the phone and the laptop and I'm online. Verizon said it couldn't be done!

I believe most recent versions of OS X shipped with a 'Sprint PCS Vision' script that should work with your phone as well (I used it successfully with Sprint's 8830, and Sprint's connection settings are identical to Verizon's I believe).

I too have been trying to tether via bluetooth in Leopard to no avail. I tried with the settings you used and rebooted both devices and still no luck.

I think the problem is that I am never actually able to get past the part where the bluetooth setup assistant hangs on "Configuring Serivices" it doesn't matter if I check or uncheck to use my phone to access the internet, it just hangs. - See this thread for more info.

Apple - Support - Discussions - BT Setup Assistant Hangs "Configuring ...


When I click connect it almost instantly says it can't connect, it doesn't even try. I also noticed that it pairs with my phone but won't actually "connect". The blue light comes on then goes off. This is likely due to the fact that I cannot complete the BT setup, it gets to the "Configuring Services" and just sits there for hours.

Apparently I am not the only one. Maybe it has something to do with the "Customized" Leopard installation I performed - no additional language packs, no printer drivers, just the base files and X11 IIRC. ?? Ideas, anyone?

Which version of OS X? You should be able to tether with the built-in PCS Vision script on Leopard and Tiger - the phone number is #777. Search the Mac forum; there are several posts with the info you need.
