Problem straight off the bat when trying to set up a cable tether...
'Click Network. A dialog box stating "New Interface Detected" appears.'
This does not happen.

I would recommend re installing the BlackBerry Desktop Manager for Mac. Also make sure the BlackBerry smartphone is not plugged in during the uninstall.

on my computer the same thing showed so I'm guessing it is not really a problem ... I say this because I just chose RIM - Compisite device im place of step 2: BlackBerry - <PIN> ... and it worked perfectly. I am actually conneced to the internet through that as I type right now. I hope this didn't come too late and that you actually found a way around it.

This is not an issue but a something i would like to know.
If i use the blackberry as a theater modem, will it allow me to browse on my computer without paying extra data charges or will that fee be seperate from the blackberry service fee. in south africa vodacom cannot answer me to this question hence have never used it.

Seems like new DM has broken DUN only on password protected devices using USB. If using BT or don't have a password protected device (anyone in their right mind still NOT using a password?) then there's no issue.
The password box that is supposed to pop-up by design does not appear in DM 2.1.0 build 24.

All depends on how the price plan is built by your carrier. Tethering is a different type of service and is easily detected by the carrier. If they don't want you to do it, they can block you. They can also charge you differently for it, allow access to it for a fee...or whatever they decide to do. Same goes on how it is displayed on your invoice... if it's part of the data plan, or create a seperate entry, it's up to them.
One thing is sure, once tethered (not theatre, tether) it will use your cellular connection therefore usage will be counted by the provider. I doubt very much any carrier would not count this towards any allotment. In fact, tendency is to charge extra for this feature, while using your regular BB data allotment of your plan. Hope it helps... go back to Vodafone and find someone with a brain.
