Blackberry Bold 9700 and Mac OS X 10.6.2 Bluetooth Tether for AT&T

This is a fairly lazy post. I'm assuming you have the devices tethered via Bluetooth - that's fairly common knowledge. What's uncommon is getting it to work. I tried the Blackberry Modem profiles that people cooked up with no luck. What ended up working was this Option N.V device profile. Just follow the screenshots.

* Note password is CINGULAR1

The speeds are under a Mbit up and down. Not great but this works. If this isn't working I suggest you tail -f /var/log/system.log while "Use verbose logging" is checked in the PPP properties.
