FRUSTRATING. this is a huge feature for me as i travel a lot and i really need this to work. any help???
i'm also wondering if there's a way to tether my curve using the usb cable and not bluetooth.
edit: and if it matters at all, my phone is running v 220.127.116.11and my carrier is tmobile.
Go into your "system preferences" and chose "network" click bluetooth and hit the configure button. Under PPP make sure every box is "UNCHECKED" except "Verabose logging" (last box) and hit apply now.
I am still using the 8700 with 4.2 OS on TMO and the 8100 script for the modem, and it works like a charm for me. The longest I have been able to stay connected is 5 hours before I have to reconnect.
If you want to use the BT connect just follow those instructions, It has been a lifesaver for me coming from the PC world.
