Blue tooth tethering vs USB

Hi.

 

I want to use my Verizon Blackberry Tour to connect my MAC laptop to the Internet.  Verizon seems to have recently released MAC desktop manager software, but in reading up on my options, I've also seen suggestions to connect via Bluetooth.  

 

Can anyone recommend what's faster or better? Connecting via Bluetooth or USB tethering?

 

Thank you.

S

 

ps- please excuse my two similar posts, the earlier post was more MAC vs PC, but I mentioned tethering in each

I don't know about Tour, but it would depend on what type of files you want to transfer to computer, and vice versa. On my phone (Storm1), I can only "Bluetooth" media files like videos, pictures, ringtones, etc. If I need to upgrade OS on phone, I have to use the USB  cable.:smileywink:
