I have mine working on T-Mobile... I was able to track down the answers at BlackberryForums.com. Are you trying to do this from a Windows box? Linux? Mac? In Windows, there's apparently some issue where you have to use the MS Bluetooth Stack, and not a third party driver to drive your bluetooth card. 

The tethering (wired or wireless) instructions are going to be provider specific. And if you're mentioning EVDO specifically, I'm assuming, you're on Verizon. I can't speak to VZW's tethering support/instructions, but I do remember it's been done by someone at blackberryforums
