    Does anyone here have a windows mobile pda/phone that they sync/use with their mac? I want to the the moterola Q to repalce my treo but I'd like to use it as a tethered modem. I can't find any information regarding if it will work with my macbook.

    i've got on the net using bluetooth connection to my work phone (imate pda2k evdo, aka xda3). Ive never tried to sync it though because I have a pc for work.

    What about usb.. any luck using that instead of bluetooth? I've been told it doesn't work but I haven't been able to find any info online about it.

    No never tried usb. bluetooth was actually very responsive.

    I dont have the phone any more or i'd give it a go for you.

    I do remember it having a program which emulated a serial modem over usb, that would probably work worst case scenario.

    bluetooth didnt require any drivers fwiw - it just worked. Should be a good sign

    missing sync is used to sync your device. It has nothing to do with using tethered modem features.
