Got the Samsung Galaxy X from T-Mobile today and spent most the day tinkering with it.  One thing I could not find instruction on was how to tethering the phone with Snow Leopard.  So I just started tinkering to see if I could figure it out.  Low and be hold it worked with very little effort.

  1. First change your USB Settings to “Ask on connection” on your phone. Settings->Applications->USB Settings
  2. Return to your home screen and connect your phone to your Mac via a USB cable
  3. The phone will now prompt  you for the connection mode, select “Samsug Kies”
  4. After the phone connects, your mac should alert that a new network interface was found
  5. Open the Network Preferences on your Mac
  6. Select the new Samsung_Andriod network interface
  7. Select “Advanced” and use the following settings
  8. Vender: Samsung
  9. Model: GPRS
  10. APN:
  11. CID: 1
  12. Click OK

This should return you to the standard Network preferences, use the following settings:

Telephone Number:

Account Name: <your phone number>

Password: <your My T-Mobile passowrd>

Click “Connect” and if everything works, you should be tethered.
