RAZR v3, Bluetooth, T-Mobile Internet & OS X

Here’s the lowdown on setting up your Motorola RAZR to connect to the internet wirelessly via your bluetooth enabled Mac after signing up for T-Mobile internet services. I live in Arizona and have had no issues following these steps on several Macs.

  1. Grab this.
  2. Copy the “Motorola GPRS CID1” file into /Library/Modem Scripts
  3. Go to System Preferences -> Bluetooth -> Devices and click “Set Up New Device…”

  4. After selecting the more obvious options to set up your phone, enter the connection settings as in the following screenshot. (The password is “internet”.)

  5. After completing the wizard, select “Connect” from the new icon visible on the menu bar at the top of the screen.

    (Suggestion: manually “Disconnect” your phone when you’re done with the internet connection, as putting the computer to sleep while connected seems to cause issues when the system wakes up.)

  1. Hello Preston,

    I’ve been having problems with my connection recently. The above instructions worked like a charm before but now it has stopped working. I now get “Could not negotiate a connection with the remote PPP server. Please verify your settings and try again” message.

    I reconfigured my phone again along with the bluetooth to no avail.

    Any thoughts?
