I've used a 3G USB Modem and got it humming through Parallels, so I would have thought any other USB modem (BlackBerry or otherwise) should be fine. For my 3G modem I had to install the Mac driver in OSX and the Windows drivers in XP, but I had no problem at all. Of course when going online in XP I lose my internet access in OSX.

Not sure if that helps but there you go!!!!

I connect my 8100 with no problems for syncing on Parallels Beta. Still, the usb connection is a little bit tricky, sometimes OSX detects the usb before XP does so I have to play a little bit connecting and disconnecting the 8100.

The only thing that I wasnt able to do at all is upgrading my bb's OS.

Default Build 3150! GET IT NOW

I have been frustrated with Parallels for a long while now. A few updates ago I finally got Parallels to work with my Blackberry and I even got it to use the Verizon Access Manager to tether my Blackberry as a modem, but only with limited success.

I have since purchased an Express PC card for my MacBookPro so I no longer need to tether, so I can't speak to this latest builds' ability to tether the Blackberry as a modem, but Build 3150 works PERFECTLY the first time with recognizing the Blackberry, Syncing contacts, etc., and it stayed connected!!!! No drop-outs like previous releases.

Downoad it now!

Chris

Default 7130e works ok

I have parallels and use it with VZAccess to get online. Occaisionally I have to plug/unplug the cable to get VZAccess to see the phone, but then all is OK. Good Luck!

Default Success- Sprint 8703

The sprint 8703 now works like a charm in parallels. I can surf the web, get on my corporate VPN, etc... Good speed, no dropped connections so far. For reference, I'm using th Sprint connection manager.

What I haven't been able to do yet is punt that connection back to OSX. I know it can be done, but I'm not really sure how. Any suggestions?

This is what works for me using VZAccess:

Set the VM prefs to "Host Only" for the network connection. Then after you have a connection in windoze, open OS X "System Prefs", "Network" and refresh the "Parallels-Guest" connection.
