Thread: 3G cell phone help

  1. #1
    Default 3G cell phone help
    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 any one recommend a 3G phone that will tether through bluetooth and is OS X compatible?

    Do you know how much they go for? I'd like to do this on the cheap.

    OK, I went out and I bought a Motorola v3xx and it shows 3G. 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.

    Can anyone help me with the network settings to set this up so I connect via 3G?

    Well, I got the phone and I got it setup. I can't connec via 3G faster than 300-400kps so I guess the phone is going back.



    Thanks for the help.
