Tether a Blackberry on Alltel

I cannot even describe to you the overwhelming feeling of accomplishment that I have now that I have finally tethered my Blackberry Curve (Alltel) to BOTH my laptops.  On Windows 7, it was fairly simple:  pair the phone, then set up a com port.  On the Mac, is was pair the device, set up the DUN for Generic & CDMA.  After that, the phone number, user name, and password are: #777, <your 10 digit phone number>, alltel.

It took me over a year to find that information on the internet.  I don’t know if people just don’t use Alltel or what, but it was exceedingly hard to find.

Down speeds are around 280kb/s, with uploads coming it at about 90kb/s.  Latency is around 330ms.  Not great, but not bad either.  I can easily work on those speeds, so long as I don’t need to do any heavy uploading/downloading.

If you need help tethering, leave a comment and I’ll see if I can help.
