How to tether (modem) HTC 6800 with OS X,

I have spent the last two weeks trying to crack this.. can anybody help? I don't post much if you look at my history I like to solve my own ish.. but this one has me going on some ova ish...

I'm using OS X 10.4.11 original Macbook Pro

aight here's the deal.. might help out some others...

having a girl on the inside is a huge PLUS!! .. I have access to 50+ active cell phones..so I'm kinda PRO at this.. have tethered and committed PAM succesfully on all these lines, all over bluetooth... but this ONE is stumping me..

here's what I'm doing..

Obviously I have already turned on bluetooth on the Mac and made the HTC discoverable and turned Bluetooth on it as well..

1. Open Up System Preferences

2. Click Bluetooth

3. Click Setup a New Device

4. Selecting "Mobile PHone" at Device Type Screen

5. Search for Bluetooth Devices....

PROBLEM is, it doesn't find it via this method..which I can't understand why not? anyone?

but MOVING on, I tried this.. all the ABOVE steps but getting to step # 4

4. Selecting "ANY DEVICE" at Device Type Screen

5. Search For Bluetooth Devices..

6. At select Services available for this device, there is ONLY ONE option, use as a headset!! Which obviously i don't want to do...

7. I unselect use as a headset and click finish....

8. Device NOW listed under my Bluetooth Devices menu..

9. It has all the correct profiles under, Device Services: Service Discovery, Network Access Point, Audio Video Remote Control Profile, A2DP, Active Sync BLuetooth Service, Voice Gateway, OBEX Object Push

so thats where I'm at?

Can anyone clue us in from here, on what to do? Or what we're doing wrong

I also have 3 other related requests..

1. how to tether via USB in os x

since i'm desperate and might jump ship over to XP

2. how to tether in XP via Bluetooth and USB

any input or if somebody can point me to the right pages to get this done would be GReATLY appreciated!!


thanks!!

Re: How to tether (modem) HTC 6800 with OS X,

2 posts and you don't know any better.

This thread is closed until further notice, because of the fact that this sounds like a request for warez.

Thank you for understanding, and a course of action will be conducted in due time.

Edit: Thread reopened, enjoy and good luck! ~Wideawake

Is there a way to use the internet sharing program. I can't believe that it is so simple with a pc but so difficult with a mac.

I find most things are easier to do on a Windows PC rather than a PC running OSX. Sure, the interface for basic stuff is idiot-proof on an Apple but when you actually want to do something outside the norm it's a pain in the ***. At least with Windows there is usually a way to do whatever you want even if it's not as simple as pointing at a picture of what you want on a screen.

Re: How to tether (modem) HTC 6800 with OS X,

Ummm depends on the user I guess...

I had tethering working on OSX through bluetooth WAY before I had it going on windows. As long as you understand the concept of what you are doing, and know both systems...and I mean actually know osx like you know windows, its simple.
