    Help! New Blackberry, old OS, updating needed?
    I am using a PowerBook G4 on panther OS X 10.3.9 and never felt the need to update when Tiger came out, because I am a college student and use my mac for papers and music. The only thing that is updated it my iTunes. Now I have a BlackBerry pearl 8130 and need to configure it to my computer so I can use the internet. I have read the forums on doing that sync process, my only concern is that I am using Panther, and not Tiger or even Leopard. If I was to update to Leopard from my operating system, do I have to just purchase Leopard from Apple.com, or is that not feasible since I never purchased Tiger? And if anyone knows about this concerning the new BlackBerry, that would be a huge help.

    Are you trying to tether--use your Pearl as a modem to provide internet access to the MB via bluetooth? There is a bit of a hack to do this--here is the string:
