Tethering Bold 9780 to Mac OS Lion

I've researched on many different forums on how to go about setting this up, but it still fails.


I'm from Singapore and my mobile network provider is Singtel. I have already paired my device to my MacBook via Bluetooth.


In the Advanced tab under Network, I put "Research In Motion" under 'Vendor' and chose 'Blackberry IP Modem (CDMA)' under 'Model'. How to check if I should be putting CDMA/ GSM? I've also put these settings during the Bluetooth configuration of my phone to Mac.


When I click on connect, it seems to be able to connect for a few seconds and it will automatically disconnect thereafter, informing me that I've been disconnected by the PPP server. I've tried this via connecting my blackberry with a USB cable instead of Bluetooth, but the same problem persists.


Any help regarding this? Thanks a lot Smiley Happy
