Updated Modem Scripts for OS X 10.5 (Leopard)

| | Comments (107)

If you're a rabid early adopter like me, you've probably already installed Leopard and discovered that the original modem script doesn't work with the new OS. However, it's unlikely you then repackaged all of the modem scripts (BlackBerry 8100,8700 and 8800) into the new modem script format and made them available for download. If you did, why didn't you let me know?! You would have saved me a half-hour's worth of work. Sheesh, some people.

At any rate, if you're on Leopard and jonesing for a Bluetooth modem fix, here's what you do:

  1. Download the new scripts. One download for all phone models!
  2. Unzip that file into Macintosh HD:Library:Modem Scripts. The same location th old script lived. If successful, you should see a new directory named BlackBerry.ccl there.
  3. Pair your phone as usual - when asked for the phone's Vendor and Model, choose 'Research in Motion' and whatever model of phone you have. I'm not a mind reader, you know.
  4. The username, password and phone number fields should be filled in with the same values as before; namely, whatever is appropriate for your carrier. Check the forums if you're not sure.

That's it! I'd like to make an installer for this to make it even more seamless, but for now this should get you going. As always, let me know if you run into problems and I'll try to help.

Thanks very much for updating these so quickly. It saves me in the airports that want you to pay for the WiFi access.

King said:

Can you make a 8300 Modem script for the Curve? That would be awesome!

RickO said:

This is fantastic. I tried the old scripts in Leopard on Tuesday and was stymied. Thanks very much for being an early adopter (like me) and a brilliant modem script writer (not like me).

You should put up a donation link. I don't see one...

ggoodale Author Profile Page said:

@William - Thanks! I had one, but it was lost in the site redesign. I resuscitated it just for you. ;)

Larry said:

I would gladly donate as well if you could:
*do the same for the BB 7290 (usb)
*do the same for the Nokia 6230 (usb)
or post information on how to repackage the old scripts to work with Leopard (ie, Ross Barkman's scripts!)

ggoodale Author Profile Page said:

@Larry: Writing USB drivers for OS X is a far different task than writing bluetooth modem scripts. As I'm not a hardware hacker, the USB drivers you've mentioned aren't something I can write. (I was under the impression, though, that the 6230 had bluetooth. Why use USB?

As for Ross' scripts, the changes aren't hard - maybe I'll put up a tutorial in a separate post, time permitting. I expect Ross will be updating his scripts shortly, though.

Larry said:

Thanks, Grant.

Good question re: USB and the 6230. I can connect fine via bluetooth on the 6230, but the GPRS connection drops after about 20 seconds or so. From some googling, it sounds like it's a known problem with my version of the firmware. I've tried getting it updated, but places that update nokia firmware say mine can't be updated - go figure. The USB cable worked perfectly in 10.4, and was reasonably fast to boot.

The script for the blackberry 7290 worked liked this: you would set it up as a bluetooth modem, but use Ross' scripts with a USB cable. Somehow it 'just worked'.

Anywho - thanks again!

Hello. Thank you very much for this. I am having an issue establishing a connection with my 8700g. The error from OS X console application:

Darkwind00 said:

I appreciate the scripts. I have used the older ones with Tiger for months now, but I cannot get these to work in Leopard with my 8100. I posted the log in the forum a couple days ago. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks :)

ggoodale Author Profile Page said:

@Larry - that's very surprising to hear about the 7290. I'll see about adding Ross' existing script to the package.

@Fubarovich: Please turn on Verbose Logging (Network pane of System Preferences, select your Bluetooth connection, click Advanced..., choose the PPP tab and select Configuration from the Settings pulldown) and post a full connection log here. It sounds like you're suffering from something similar to what Darkwind00 is seeing, but I can't replicate it with my phone. Which cell provider are you using?

ggoodale Author Profile Page said:

@Darkwind00: I've replied to your post over in the forums. Which carrier are you with?

Grant: For some reason I did not have the "modem" Dialup Networking service under my blackberry device settings. Adding that fixed the problem and I am able to connect. The strange thing is that my connection only survives for about 10 icmp packets and then nothing. I've noticed that the new Tmobil firmware is buggy and I am certainly experiencing this. Whats the solution?

ggoodale Author Profile Page said:

@Fubarovich: unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a fix at the moment. I don't have an 8700 to test against, but you might want to look around the BlackBerry 8700 forum over at BlackBerryForums.com to see if someone can suggest a firmware rev that better suits your needs.

@Grant Done - thanks again!

Tom B Author Profile Page said:

I just uploaded the drivers per the instructions and see the RIM options now on my MAC. I'm using a Verizon 8830 on a Mac with 10.5, and can't seem to get this thing to connect using the new script. If I use the generic CDMA-EVDO.txt drivers I can connect, but can't get connected using the 8800 Driver? Any suggestions. I already tried deleting my Bluetooth device profile and keychains as well as re-starting/re-connecting/re-activating my 8830 w/Verizon. I can connect using the genric driver, but using the 8830 causes my Mac to totally freeze.

ggoodale Author Profile Page said:

@William - Thanks! Much appreciated.

@Tom - the 8800 script is intended for use with GSM models of the 88xx series. The 8830 is CDMA-based and will work with the EVDO drivers supplied (you can use the cdma Bluetooth driver for au KDDI, for example). I believe the dial string for both Sprint and Verizon is #777.

Grant,

Will the modem script that you wrote for the blackberry 8100 also work for the new 8130 on the verizon network?

Thanks!

The one thing I did notice, the script says: Making EDGE connection though Vodafone Netherlands only supports GPRS or 3G, do I need to change anything in the script so it uses GPRS?

@stefano: I don't know what the proper username and password are for TIM Italy, but I'd check to make sure you're sending the right ones.

@funkyp56: It appears your 8800 is running a later version of OS 4.2, which suffers from a bluetooth bug that occurs whenever you disconnect the modem connection. Try resetting your phone by pulling the battery; you should be able to tether after that.

@adam: Actually, CDMA BlackBerry models require a different script. The good news is that one of the scripts included with Leopard will work for you; check out the Mac forum over at blackberryforums.com for more info.

@Daenney: Don't worry about the EDGE comment - it'll use GPRS if EDGE isn't available. I don't know what the proper username and password are for Vodafone in the Netherlands, but I'd check to make sure you're sending the right info (and the proper APN as well).

@rigo.r: I've seen this on Cingular, but not on T-Mobile. The fix is detailed here:

Well, I've tried every known setting for Vodafone Netherlands, all have user and password vodafone and the apn can be:

In all cases it doesn't get past Authenticating so I'm starting to wonder if I'm missing some kind of option or functionality on my Blackberry

satya said:

I tried the "Generic GPRS/3G" modem drivers with my sprint SERO 8830 CDMA phone on my leopard Macbook. I get "No carrier". Does it mean I am out of luck ? Secondly, I dont see "#777" in the logs even though I keyed in #777 in the input for "Telephone number". Is that okay or am I missing something.

ggoodale Author Profile Page said:

@Daenney - Sorry, but I've no idea. If you can, turn on verbose logging in the PPP options and post a snippet of the logs from when you try to connect.

@satya - SERO plans explicitly don't allow tethering. That's most likely the reason you're having issues.

To those people above who are having problems connecting and are seeing "MS-CHAP[v2] auth not performed" - you should disable CHAP authentication.

The way to do this is to create a file in /etc/ppp called "options".

# Copy and paste the following two lines of code into the Terminal:
cd /etc/ppp/
sudo pico options
# Authenticate with your system’s root password.
# Copy and paste the following lines of code:
refuse-chap
refuse-mschap
refuse-mschap-v2
# Hit “Control+X” to exit the Pico application within the Terminal.
# When asked to save, hit “Y” for yes.

Grant,

Were you able to create any scripts for T-Mo's 8320 (Curve)? To date, although the modem connects, there is little if any data transfer, which is what many others have confirmed. It feels like I am so close, yet so far....

Thank you sir!!! :)

Has anyone had any luck getting this to work with Leopard on Vodafone UK?

I'm using a Pearl 8100, a MacBook and Leopard. The setup looks fine and dandy, but it only gets as far as Connecting... but then it just hangs until I Disconnect.

I have found 2 different sets of APN information for Vodafone UK, I've tried both and get the same behaviour. These are:

Tel number : Internet
User: web
Pass: webs
and
Tel number: wap.vodafone.uk
User: user@vodafone.net
Pass: user.

My Console log looks like this:

The final line is where I disconnected manually.

Hi! I'd hugely appreciate a script for the 8300!
Any hope of getting this to work in Leopard? I have managed it perfectly in 10.4, but no such luck in 10.5 with any of the new scripts...
I'm on o2 in the UK.

I found the following on AT&T's site for tethering vista & bluetooth. Could it be that we should use the APN below and the dialing string on a MAC to make things work without disconnecting? I'm a little leery to try it out.

Is this a USB GPRS (wap) internet connection, or does this allow you to use BB as a dial up modem ? if not how do i get my BB to be used on mac as a dial up modem?

Wow, it's been a long time since I've responded here. Sorry for that. Here goes:

@Craig: There's a known issue with the version of BlackBerry's OS that the Curve runs. Basically you'll need to pull the battery before every tethering session. I wish there was a good fix, but you'll likely have to wait for OS 4.3 to come out.

@tismey - Sorry, I can't be of much help. Check if you provider requires a separate tethering plan.

@John - you should be able to right click on the link and select Save As or Download linked file (depending on your browser).

@Matthew - Which provider are you with? Anonymous' tip a few comments above may be required for you.

@Pardberry - Really? I'm surprised given the firmware issues US Curve users have been reporting. Which version of the firmware are you running? You should be able to use the 8800 or 8100 scripts - the differences are largely cosmetic.

@Mark - no, the requirements for tethering on Vista are different. The dialing string is set in the modem script, and the APN is what goes into the phone number field in your Bluetooth network connection.

@Eugene - This is a bluetooth link between your mac and your phone's DUN capabilities. No USB involved. Are you trying to use your phone to dial another modem rather than connect to the internet through your provider? If so, I'm afraid I can't help.

Is there a script available for the 8320, I upgraded to leopard as well.

Thanks ...

brich2894 Author Profile Page said:

Hi all - thanks for the helpful posts. I have a new Macbook that shipped w/ Leopard. Until recently I used a BB 8800 as a tethered modem with this machine on tmobile (USA) and it worked perfectly. (thanks to prevois posts on Fibble!!). When the 8800 died, I switched to a Nokia e61. Again, modem worked perfectly with Tmobile. My company just supplied a BB 8310 from AT&T that I unlocked for use w/ Tmobile. Tried everything to get this BB working as a tethered modem w/ no luck! I have installed the new scripts (I understand the that 8100 script should work with the 8310), updated the BB apn to tmobile, used proper passwords, etc. Just will not work!

Is a specific 8300/8310 script required? Any other ideas??

lorenz said:

Hi guys, is there anything about the script for the 8300 Curve for Leopard 10.5.1 ?? thank you in advance...

Larry said:

I've found a modem script for the 8300, but don't know how to repackage it for Leopard.

_Ombra_ said:

Lorenz and Larry:

I posted a thread in the forum under the "Mac Problems" section. I modified that same script and adapted to the 8300 even tough there is no real difference to the 8100 or the 8700 so you can either get that one or use the script for the 8100.

Only problem so far is when you disconnect. Mine isn't working properly and i have to restart the phone.

Check the thread for more info

ian said:

Looking and the new modem scripts listed above "Blackberry.ccl" in VI (or VIM) the files are saved with Mac carriage returns rather than unix linefeeds. In the previous 8100 script I read "Don't open with TextEdit." I'm sure the same applies here also. You can either use VI to strip the "^M" characters (if you aren't a vi user don't try it) out or use the Free app TextWrangler to properly save the files with UNIX linefeeds. The download needs to be cleaned up and use the correct linefeeds.

mark said:

It works! Thanks so much for the updated Leopard scripts (I suggest a link from the other page that has the old scripts to this one, this one was a bitch to find!).

Running 10.5.2 Leopard, T-Mobile 8100 Pearl.
I have the new blackberry software bug that requires me to pull out the battery for each new time I try to connect. Oh well, hopefully BB will fix that.

Thanks again!

Michael Author Profile Page said:

I have similar issue to Daenney.

operating a 8820 BB on ATT network. I am using your latest script and it fails at authenticating. Not sure how to get the log above. Running MBPro, using *9***1# as the dial number, no user name, no password, it tries to connect but says it fails on the PPP negotiation. Figure it is a script problem. Help out if you have some ideas.
Michael

ggoodale Author Profile Page said:

@Daenney - Note the 'rcvd' in that line. That message came from the other end of the connection; your Mac sent the username 'vodafone' in response. I'm not sure why you're running into issues - that log look fine as far as it goes. Was there anything more after the CHAP exchange?

@Michael - You'll need to put the name of the APN you're trying to connect to in the telephone number field - it'll be either wap.cingular or ISP.CINGULAR depending on your account. Head over to the Carrier Specific section of the forums to find out more, including what you need to put in the username and password fields.

Michael Author Profile Page said:

That would be great Grant Goodale but there is no ATT carrier section and don't believe that cingular terminology will be accepted by ATT.

ggoodale Author Profile Page said:

Actually, it will. The Cingular data connection parameters are correct for AT&T.

Daenney said:

Hey Grant,

No there is nothing after the CHAP exchange, that is as far as it will go, the only other things that appears in the log is when I tell OS X to just disconnect after trying for over 5min to authenticate...
The other unfortunate part is that you can't tcp-dump that connection until that connection is set up, I figured there's a packet somewhere that is missed...

DUDEEE! You are a biiiig genius!! I'm writing this in my MacBook with my BB's internet all the way from Argentina using CTI Movil!! Right now I am at my house in the country-side, quite far from the city where we never had internet before! This is awesome!! Thanx a LOT!

PS: It disconnects on its own after a while... Any solutions?

Can anyone please tell me what the username, password, and phone number is supposed to be for the blackberry 8100. I completely stuck at that point

ggoodale Author Profile Page said:

@taylor: That depends - which carrier are you with? The settings for some of the more common carriers can be found here.

yebo Author Profile Page said:

Thanks so much for this.. I managed to connect on my 8100 just fine.

The problem I am having though is I when losing a connection. If I go into a dead zone, or my phone moves too far from the laptop, everything on the macbook freaks out. When I try to disconnect via the menu bar, it just sits there on "Disconnecting..." until I reboot mac (which it wont do cleanly, I can't kill the ppp process).

All I get in the logs is this:
Fri May 16 07:52:50 2008 : CCLExit: -6019 (Modem error, modem not responding.)
Fri May 16 07:52:50 2008 : disconnect script failed

Any advice would be appreciated.

Hugh

ggoodale Author Profile Page said:

@yebo - I've seen this problem with the OS X bluetooth stack before - it was much more common on Tiger than it is on Leopard, but it can still happen.

The two tricks I've found are 'sudo killall pppd' (which it sounds like you already know) which I usually have to issue at least twice to be effective, and 'sudo killall CCLEngine', which is frequently the process that's causing pppd to hang. Try killing pppd first, then CCLEngine followed by pppd again. If that doesn't work, I'm afraid it's time to reboot.

Devin said:

I just installed the script and the modem settings showed up fine in my network settings

The problem is the forum area describing the connection settings is talking about the APN address that you are supposed to use. My setting boxes are Telephone Number, Account Name, and Password. I tried putting the APN line in the telephone number box to no avail.

Am I just nubbing this up?

ggoodale Author Profile Page said:

@Devin: Which carrier are you with? You're correct, the APN should go in the phone number field. You also need to have *something* in the username and password fields, even if your carrier doesn't require them.

Catherine said:

Do you know how to tether through USB?

CatherineLW Author Profile Page said:

Do you know how to do USB tethering through Leopard with a Blackberry 8800?

CatherineLW Author Profile Page said:

Sorry about the double posts above.

I was having the "Authenticating" timeout problem as well, but once I updated the phone number field using the APN information posted on the forums here, I was able to get it to work. For AT&T, a lot of posts had *99# or some variation as the phone number to enter. Turns out using wap.cingular or isp.cingular as the phone number fixed the problem (those are the "APN" entries you'll see on the forums). I'm able to connect using both WAP and ISP information. Check the forums on this site for specific login information.

Point being--THANK YOU. This site is the only one I've been able to find that gets it right.

Len said:

Hi - I'm trying to tether an 8820 to a Macbook running the latest version of Leopard.

I downloaded the latest modem scripts for Leopard. I used the script for the 8800, will this script work with the 8820? I configured the script with the correct parameters and set everything up. I connect briefly, and then immediately disconnect. The console messages are here if anybody has any ideas:

http://www.firehole.us/images/consolemsg.gif

ggoodale Author Profile Page said:

@Len - Yes, the 8800 script will work for an 8820. From the looks of that screenshot, you're using the latest version of the 4.2 OS (T-Mobile, I'm guessing), which suffers from an annoying bug - tethering connection attempts will routinely confuse the bluetooth stack irreparably. Try pulling the battery, then connecting again.

Len said:

Thanks Grant. You were correct on the OS version and the carrier. Your suggestion worked, briefly. Is the bug such that I have to remove the battery after each successful connection?

CatherineLW Author Profile Page said:

Could that also apply for AT&T? I ran into the same timeout issue. Battery removal worked for me, albeit I didn't try that until a day later.

Rob said:

I was having all sorts of problems with maintaining a stable connection until I updated my Blackberry Pearl's operating system from 4.2x to 4.5. AT&T doesn't offer the latest firmware so I had to do all sorts of digging around to figure out how to get T-mobile's firmware package applied to my AT&T device. I would advise anyone out there to check out the 4.5 firmware, as it offers many improvements over the old 4.2 system provided by AT&T.

Not sure why you wouldn't have it - it should be created when you install OS X. It should be in the Library folder at the root of your hard drive. If it's not there, you can create it.

Matt said:

The 8800 script works for the new 9000 ("Bold") too. Using it right now, in fact to leave this comment.

Terry said:

Ah-ha! After fighting for hours I finally got this to work, thanks to these scripts. For anyone else struggling, here's my setup:


  • MacBook Pro (MBP)

  • Mac OS X 10.5.5 (Leopard)

  • T-Mobile USA

  • Blackberry 8700 OS v. 4.5.0.55


This was a new 8700 to replace one that met an untimely demise. The old one I could pair with my Mac, but didn't offer any services. Since I noticed that the new one came with a new version of the OS, apps, etc, I decided to try it again. When I paired it I noticed that it offered to let me share my Internet connection through my phone. I pretty much left all the fields for that blank during the bluetooth setup, tried it, and it didn't work. Without going through all the different things I tried, I ended up getting the scripts here, installing them in /Library/Modem Scripts, going into Network Preferences, selecting Bluetooth on the sidebar, going into Advanced..., selecting "Other" as the vendor, which allowed me to select the "Blackberry 8700" script, other settings:

  • DNS: 66.94.9.120 and 66.94.25.120

  • PPP->Configuration->Send PPP echo packets: off

  • PPP->Configuration->Use TCP header compression: on

  • Telephone Number: wap.voicestream.net

  • Account Name: GPRS

  • Password: GPRS


I did not change any settings on my Blackberry. In particular, the APN, Username, and Password under Settings->Advanced Settings->TCP are all still blank.

It appears that the Blackberry 3G scripts that Ross Barkman has at http://www.taniwha.org.uk/ will also do the trick -- I tried the "BlackBerry 3G CID1" script.

Sorry, I haven't encountered that before. It sounds like your phone isn't being properly recognized as such by the OS X bluetooth stack. I'd suggest re-pairing the two, starting from your phone instead of your Mac and see if that helps.

Hey GGoodale and hello everybody,

This is my first post in here so please excuse my ignorance if i missed something in the earlier posts that would resolve my issue. Goodale, I can't thank you enough for making this script available for all of us to use. When i had my BB 8800 this script ran flawlessly and without a problem. Now that i upgraded to BB 9000 situation has changed and things stopped working. Even though there is others out there in different forums as well as yours that they got the BB Bold working under the 8800 drivers i was unfortunately unsuccessful in repeating their success. The following is the error message that i get every time i try to connect:

" Could not negotiate a connection with the remote PPP server. Please verify your settings and try again"

I have verified my connection settings and i am very sure that i have the right authentication information in there and this is also based on the fact that the same vitrification information worked without any issues with my prevues 8800.

I am running Mac OS X 10.5.7 and on my BB i am running V4.6.282 (platform 4.0.0.235) and i am on AT&T network.

Any ideas or help will be highly appreciated.

Thank you

Grant, I'm a 52-yr old lawyer, trying to tether my BB 8120 to my Mac and was told to come to your site. One question - how do you make any money on this? You should. Sell advertising, answers, something (the other readers will shoot me for this!), but you provide a great service. So, here's my question (and email me a bill!), I think I followed the instructions but as the Mac says "connecting...." it quickly goes to "disconnecting...". What gives? I used to be able to do this easily and often, but I had to replace my phone a couple of months ago and it has to be re-done with the new phone and I've never been able to get it to work again.

Turtle said:

Just upgraded from an 8800 to a 9700 involuntarily when the 8800 auto-bricked itself. Anyway, on OSX the setup that worked perfectly for years with the 8800 will not work at all. And suddenly, T-Mobile says, "well, we no longer officially support tethering a Blackberry."

I'll save the rant about that for another time. Right now, if ANYONE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD has gotten a 9700 to tether on T-Mobile on Mac OSX 10.5.x, email me.

Please do NOT email me with "when you find out, let me know, too." I have this specific config and if someone has a solution I have the power to broadcast it bigtime.

Again: if you are tethering a Blackberry 9700 to Mac OSX 10.5.x, tell me how. Where'd you get the scripts, since the blackberry.ccl won't work any more for me, and T-Mobile has washed their hands of the only reason I use TM.

Hi. I must preface this by saying I am completely computer illiterate. I am trying to tether my T-Mobile Blackberry 8100 to my Powerbook G4 computer (with is running on MAC OS X version 10.5.8), and I cannot figure out how to do that. I have downloaded the script, and have that in my modem scripts folder. On the forums it gives me a step by step how to do this, but once it gets to the place where I am to select the script from the folder, I do not have this option. My set up wizard just tells me that I can now use my device to access the internet, but does not allow me to chose the script to run. As a result, my Blackberry and my computer are paired, but not connected and I cannot get them to connect. I do have the little phone icon and when I click on it I can ask it to connect the internal modem, but it tells me the connection has failed and I need to verify my settings. Please help! Thank you so very much!!!

I have the first Blackberry Pearl 8100 and a Macbook Pro. I have figured out how to tether it to my Mac (both with OS X 10.4 and after upgrading to 10.5) as a modem via bluetooth back in the states with ATT/Cingular. Thanks to the info found here: http://www.fibble.org/

I'm now living in Bali, Indonesia and I've managed to get it working with the local provider Indosat. I'm still using the same script provided by fibble.org with the settings Research In Motion and Blackberry 8100 when I configure my bluetooth device on the Mac. However Indosat doesn't want me to tether...here's the details...

In order to have unlimited data on my phone I had to send a text message, "bis2" (which stands for Blackberry Internet Service 2) to 882 in order to have unlimited data for the month. This is after paying 200,000IDR (about $22USD) to sign up for this unlimited service of which 40,000IDR was taken immediately. Every month, before this "unlimited" service expires, Indosat is supposed to send me a message alerting me to recharge before it expires. This involves paying 160,000IDR (~17USD) before the expire date.

I used the info I found here as a starting point to get the correct provider WAP info:
http://www.taniwha.org.uk/gprs.html

I had to hack at it a bit to get my computer to connect to Indosat's PPP and found that the following settings worked, however the data wasn't free. This is after the people who took the money told me I can't tether it at all.

Network
Telephone Number: indosatgprs
Account Name: indosatgprs
Password: guest

Bluetooth Mobile Phone Setup
Phone Vendor: Research in Motion (script from fibble.org ..thanks!!)
Phone Model: BlackBerry 8100
Username:
Password:

When setting up the bluetooth
APN:
CID: 1

After my money ran out from using the data on the phone I was disconnected. I tried to reconnect and it goes through the usual steps: Connecting..., Authenticating... and it connects briefly before I get the error message:

Internet Connect
The connection was terminated by the remote site. Please try again.

I realize this is likely because I don't have any more credit on my phone. I am able to continue surfing the internet ON MY PHONE as part of the unlimited plan but I am no longer able to tether it.

I have looked at the script from fibble.org and tried several hacks but can't seem to get around this.

There must be a way for my computer to use the data stream from my phone without Indosat knowing...researching this topic...will post a solution if I find an answer...

I am using a blackberry bold 9700 with mac os 10.6(.4)
I can confirm that the script worked perfectly.
The only customised details i had to enter was;
-email eg XXXX@telstra.ap.blackberry.net (i'm in australia)
-password
-APN ie telstra.internet (i had to call telstra blackberry who gave me this link over the phone)
and i left the phone number blank.... all the rest was default

For what its worth; during setup i even accidentally managed to make an outgoing call through my BB to it's handset in the garage

@jean
i am in the same situation and just managed to get it working (without too much hassle)
See my reply earlier!

bb9700 running OS 10.6.4 successfully connected via bluetooth using just the scrip mentioned here!
Not the fastest but wicked tool when im on the road!

Hi, I have read through all the threads and downloaded the script so thank you! I'm on a bb9700 and have Tmobile service. In the set up I also have a CID option and 2 different blackberry options. I'm using osx 10.5.8 and still cannot get it to work. Any suggestions????
