    #1)Are you in an EVDO area?
    (I know of course you are but ask the dumb questions first)

    #2)What baud rate do you have your BT Serial port set to?
    (Set it all the way up and see if it helps)

    I don't use Mac so I can't help a whole bunch. There are a bunch of people using Macs and hopefully they will answer.

    Without a number we can't tell you. You do realize that BT speeds are rather low, right?

    Guess you didnt read where i put 200kbps....
    And yes I do realize the limitations of BT, thus the question about USB drivers for MAC
    Anyway,
