    Has anyone managed to get the Treo 750s modem used via bluetooth on the latest version of Mac OSX?

    Yes, I am using it regularly. I had to do a small hack to make it work - it's documented at http://forums.macosxhints.com/showthread.php?t=80416

    </dict>

    this snippet describes modem (you should be using Treo 3G CID1 custom modem script available on the net) and the PPP properties for the connection. As it turns out CCPEnabled setting is not configurable via GUI, you can only change it in the file. This type of PPP compression is not enabled by Cingular/ATTWS and that's why manual hacking of the file is required.

    Since my file is completely missing the following line:

    <key>CCPEnabled</key>
    <integer>0</integer>

    ...should I just add it in? Would that do the trick?

    Well, I had that parameter in the file and had to change it from 1 to 0. Are you connecting to Cingular/ATTWS ? Have you created the connection for it, like you would in Tiger?

    In my case I had been connecting to the Internet via Treo on Tiger happily until I did fresh install of Leopard and noticed that the connectivity no longer worked - it has always reported PPP error when I tried to connect. After enabling the verbose PPP logging I saw the "MPPE is required but not enabled" error message in the logs, and hacking that line in the .plist file resolved that.

    I wouldn't be adding that line by yourself - it has to appear in the file first and then you change it from 1 to 0 to make the PPP connection work with Cingular.

    I just switched from Windows to Macintosh and I've had my MBP for about a week. Other than that, I've never used Mac..

    Then you need to setup your connection first. The settings depend on your carrier, I can help you with the setup for AT&T Wireless / Cingular.
