4. Using Desktop Manager for Mac

First, download and install the latest version of Desktop Manager for Mac from www.blackberry.com.

Now, connect your BlackBerry to your Mac. Go to Settings => Network on your Mac to see the window shown in Figure 6.

Figure 6. Configure BlackBerry as modem on a Mac.

Your Mac now sees your BlackBerry as a new network interface and will attempt to configure it as a dial up modem for tethering.

If you have a tethering or BlackBerry as a modem service plan with your carrier, you can continue with the setup and choose Network Preferences... as shown in Figure 7.

NOTE

Most, but not all, carriers charge extra for using your BlackBerry as a modem for your Mac to connect to the Internet. Contact your carrier for pricing.

Figure 7. Pop up window advising you to use Newtwork Preferences to configure BlackBerry as modem.

Many carriers will allow you to turn on and off this extra service. Say you were taking a trip and needed to use the modem feature for three weeks. Your carrier may allow you to do and then turn it off again when you return home.

This section explains how to configure your network preferences:

NOTE

Only proceed with these steps if have all the necessary carrier setup strings provided by your wireless carrier.

  1. Click Default next to the Configuration field, and select New Connection. Type a connection name; in Figure 8, we used BlackBerry 8900, but you might want to type BlackBerry 9700 or Bold 9700.

  2. Fill in your phone number, account name, and password in the appropriate boxes to begin the configuration process.
