    When I purchased my iPhone I signed up prepaid so I did not keep my old AT&T cell number. I still have the 2nd phone so I want to take the SIM out of my old RAZR and pop it into a 3G cell phone so I can tether it to my MacBook Pro for internet access.

    Can anyone recommend a 3G phone that will tether through bluetooth and is OS X compatible?

    OK, I went out and I bought a Motorola v3xx and it can connect to a Mac via bluetooth and also synch with isync.

    How do I go about tethering it to my Mac? I connected it to my Mac via USB and it does not show up in the network system prefs. I connected via bluetooth and it shows up.

    I have read threads where members can tether using their phones. Can anyone help me with the network settings to set this up so I connect via 3G?

    i can't believe with all of the previous threads I have read of members tethering their cell phones not one single person here could offer some advice setting this up.

    I finally got it some what working. I can't connect via 3G faster than 300-400kps so I guess the phone is going back.

    :(

    Thanks for the help.
