was able to tether my phone via Barry4all
Big thank you too Thibaut Colar at berry4all.com
Had to do some serious thinking on why I could not get it to function, as I believed I followed the requirements... I'm using ZenMinin 2010...
Got it to work by installing wxPythonGTK-188.8.131.52-2pclos2010.i586.rpm
Crappy thing was I had to do a restart in order for everything to function, not sure why on that.... thank god I'm the curious type and didn't give up just kept trying different approaches.
Anyway berry4all works awesome for tethering my Black Berry.
I use the gui and select bellmobility and do a scan... then hit connect, that's all there is to it.
So there seems to be very little difference between berry4all and BB connection software in windows.
