Imobimac_modem_tether_mac_blackberrSpeaking of tethering a smartphone to a notebook for use as a modem, it seems that there’s another way to tether a BlackBerry to your Mac. As we saw last year, this type of usage scenario commanded a nice bounty for a solution. The latest approach comes to us courtesy of UNEASYsilence who mentions that iMobiMac’s beta application allows for a DUN connection between your BlackBerry and your Mac. There’s a free trial of the beta but you’ll be limited to moving only 10 MB of data on your "new" Mac modem. Probably a good thing: too much data and the tether-police might getcha!

  1. As with previous Bberry solutions, it seems your data is routed through a third party proxy. Something to keep in mind if you’re paranoid.

  2. Dave is right, I have been invited into the beta program but once provided with the details have opted to not install it.
