VZAccess Manager for Blackberry Storm

Miembro
I just purchased a MacBook Pro and wanted to download VZAccess Manager so that I could tether my BlackBerry Storm. But, alas, I am disappointed! Tech Support tells me that there is NO VZAccess Manager for the Mac that works for any Blackberry (although there are versions for other phone brands). Moreover, there apparently no plans to create a Blackberry version of VZAccess Manager for the Mac. Very discouraging inasmuch as I travel frequently and I rely on using my Blackberry to connect my laptop to the Internet. Hope someone at Verizon is reading these posts and puts this on a ToDo List.

 I'm not familiar with Mac but I thought I heard there was a program called "Bootcamp" or Parallel mode where you can have the Windows OS running instead of the Mac. Will theVz Acess Manager work with that? Try it or check with Tech Support. Maybe someone else can chime in.

Prerequisites

will need un copiar  de Windows (2000. XP, Vista)

Parallel se requiere que buy un license

¿Qué I did antes descargar Vitiualbox (gratis opensource software del Dom. Microsystems). 

 

http://www.virtualbox.org/

 

El instalar is very straightforward. Once tienes Virtualbox loaded, it will allow a cargar un Windows' imagen running en  Virtualbox. can ahora cargar VZAccess

 

Couple de pointers

Antes plug en tus blackberry, en lo Mac Finder aplicación, make sure que tus blackberry is no mounted ( will ver blackberry en  lo izquierda column si it is mounted. If it is mounted derecha click over blackberry y click en eject. Cuándo start virtualbox,y tienes VZAccess instalados, en lo titlebar de Virtuabox, go en  Dispositivos y make sure que lo RIM USB driver is no grayed out.


Synching Blackberry con Mac

will need a down cargar lo solicitud (gratis) PocketMac along con its driver. Instalar lo driver antes de installing PocketMac. El user interface is very straight forward.

 

Hope lo siguiente helps

Tethering Mac and Blackberry (with Verizon as signal source)

Miembro

When I got my Storm I was told by RIM that the big problem with tethering is Verizon's unwillingness to recognize the Mac operating system.   Those who own iPhones have tethering problems with AT&T but it seems that soon they will be set up to allow the iPhone to tether with both PC and Mac Users.  

 

How I got my Storm to tether with my Macbook Pro is a whole other story.  Mainly I had to get on Blackberry Storm and Mac owner forums and find someone who figured out how to make the current Verizon Storm Manager to work with a Mac.  It involves, as one of our group pointed out on this discussion thread, identifying the computer in the setup form as a Motorola Q, or something like that.  So it work perfectly since I got my Storm, but only by going into the back alleys of cyberdom and asking, "Hay, Mac, got a fix for me?" 

 

I travel a lot and am in places where I can't use WiFi or plug in so a tethering device is essential for me.  I do pay 30$ a month for this service to Verizon.  They know I'm tethering and are willing to take my money but they would not give me any help on how to set up a connection between my Storm and my Mac portable. 

 

I am not an iPhone advocate, nor am I particularly in love with my Storm.  But if Verizon doesn't work with Mac owners and support their OS on their phones when my two years are up, I'm jumping ship to iPhone and AT&T, even though at this time Verizon to my knowledge has the largest coverage nationwide.   psmith2383

You don't need VZAccess Manager to tether your BB to your Mac or PC.. All you need is the BB Desktop Manager installed. When you connect your BB it will create a Dial-Up connection (Modem). Configuration information is:

 

Number: #777

Username : <10digitnumber>@vzw3g.com

pass: vzw

 

You do have to have tethering on your account.
