I have found this to be true whether I'm using USBModem or the Bluetooth DUN hack.
    I sometimes have to do that - but only on the Treo side - I know when I have to turn it off via this little exercise if I don't succeed in connecting the first time.

    I go to my Versamail and try to "get" my email, if it gives me an error with no connect, thats when I need to turn my BlueTooth off than on again. I haven't tried the BlueTooth connection that often as I just got it working, but I'll have to say only 5% of the time.

    Can't help you with a Mac - others may be able to help you - the only thing I can say is the software that is on your Mac (mine is BlueSoleil) that starts the BlueTooth, it is "that" com port that must match your Mac's internal DUN com port.

    Or at least that is how it is done on a PC

    Question...If I am using USB Modem with the USB cord, do I still need the tether hack, or does the actual USB Modem program take care of cloaking the fact that one is tethering? I tried to look it up but I couldn't find a specific answer to that.

    Thanks!

    USB Modem takes care of that - but IMHO I believe any provider could tell if they really wanted to or if the data rates were high enough for them to be consider abusive
