I've tried to use HTC Tattoo as a modem on a Windows PC and it worked well, but on a Mac it doesn't work.

Some trick or app that i should be aware?

My HTC Tattoo uses the default 1.6 ROM with Sense.

How did you use it with Windows? I'm assuming HTC has Windows software to manage it. – Matthew Read Jul 7 '11 at 14:11
When i plug-in the option to "use as a modem" appear on the phone. – NeTeInStEiN Jul 7 '11 at 15:37
Oh wow, that's interesting. – Matthew Read Jul 7 '11 at 15:55

Hopefully the Mac version of PdaNet for Android will do this for you. There's a trial period, after which you need to buy it if you want to browse secure (https:// …) sites. Signing into Gmail requires HTTPS, for example.
