    Hey - I'm thinking about buying a Blackberry Pearl on Orange PAYG as you get 50MB per month for £5.00 which would be plenty for e-mail etc. and it doesn't expire like the 30-day modem deals that are currently available so it could be a decent alternative to a USB PAYG modem plus it does more!

    The question however is could I use this as a Bluetooth Modem with my Mac? And if so, how would I go about setting it up?

    I'm currently running OS 10.5.6 and know that it should be possible but was wondering if the access points would be different because I would be using PAYG :rolleyes:

    Always grateful for any advice!

    From a couple of Google searches, it sounds like this will get the job done.
