I have a Verizon Imagio cell phone - Windows Mobile 6.5. My wifi hotspot app isn't working - no laptop can get a DHCP address. So, I'd like to tether my MacBook Pro (Snow Leopard) via a USB cable and get on the network via the phone's cellular network. Can anyone point me to some directions for how I set it up on the Mac side? When I attach the phone, it gives me 2 choices: ActiveSync or Disk (in which case it just mounts the SD card as a file system volume). How do I get my Mac OS to see the phone as a modem through which the network can be accessed?

thanks,

Mike
