BlackBerry Bluetooth and MacBook

I have a new MacBook (released November 2008) and I want to know if it is possible to connect it using the phone's internet connection, but also to send and recieve files. I'm on T-Mobile UK.

When all else fails, just ask your friend what happened. They won't know but at least your both failing in style!

Re: BlackBerry Bluetooth and MacBook

Hi,

From the knowledgebase:

 

Apple® computer users are not able to use the BlackBerry smartphone as tethered modems with their laptop or desktop computers. There is no support capability for Apple computers at this time. Apple computers do not use or recognize the standard modem drivers used by Windows.

Thanks,
