    I downloaded Sprint SmartView, connect my Desktop Manager v4.7 and connected my BB. I am getting an error message that says my modem is out of order! What do I need to do now?

    Has anyone gotten a Bold running OS 5.0.93 and DM 5.0 on a PC using XP SP3 to tether? Mine was working perfectly prior to the change from an earlier version of OS (ATT standard .167) but I just cannot get it work again. If anyone has any pointers I would be grateful.
    I upgraded to .282 from .266 and my Bold stopped tethering, I always get the Error 692: There was a hardware failure in the modem (or other connecting device).

    So I checked the modem log and this is what I get...

    Are there hidden fees when using your BB as amodem. I am using the Bold 9000 on .282 on At&t. I was able to set it up to my laptop with no problems what so ever. Currently using Windows 7 Ultimate.

    Thanks.

    For T-Mobile users still having problems, use this site. I have been trying this off and on for a year or two and this site has the first set of directions that actually worked.


    I can't take credit for it it was found after several google searches at this web site

    Sorry if it has already been posted.

    Data usage, including tethering, has nothing to do with your voice minutes. If you've got a data plan, you should be able to tether your laptop to leech web. However, you'll want to check with your carrier to see if they will pummel you with tethering charges. Most carriers charge some sort of fee for tethering.

    I have tmobile and windows vista. Can someone help me too?

    Posted from my CrackBerry at wapforums.crackberry.com
    hope works whit you?? go to the blackberry.com


    Task 1

    Install BlackBerry Desktop Software 4.1 or later on your computer.

    When you install BlackBerry Desktop Software, the drivers that allow the BlackBerry smartphone to communicate through the Universal Serial Bus (USB) port and virtual communications port are installed. The standard modem, which is used by dial-up networking, is also installed.

    Note: If upgrading your BlackBerry Desktop Software from version 4.0 to 4.1, the required virtual communications port and standard modem might be removed during the upgrade process. If this is the case, re-install the BlackBerry Desktop Software 4.1 or later and choose the Repair option to re-install these components.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Task 2

    Set up an Internet APN.

    Click Start > Settings > Control Panel.
    Double-click Phone and Modem Options.
    In the Phone and Modem Options window, click the Modems tab.
    Select Standard Modem and click Properties.
    Click Change Settings.
    In the Standard Modem Properties window, click the Advanced tab.
    In the Extra initialization commands field, type the following:
    +cgdcont=1,"IP","<your Internet APN>"

    Note: The following is applicable for T-Mobile® customers only:

    The extra initialization command is: +cgdcont=1,"IP","wap.voicestream.com"

    Note: If you do not know your Internet APN, or if you do not have an Internet APN, contact your service provider.

    Click OK.
    In the Phone and Modem Options window, click OK.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Task 3

    To configure dial-up networking, complete the procedure that is appropriate to the operating system you are using:

    Windows Vista

    Click Start.
    Select Connect To.
    Click Setup a connection or network.
    Click Setup a dialup connection.
    In the Dial-up phone number field type *99#.
    Type the user name and password provided by your service provider.
    In the Connection Name field type BlackBerry.
    Click Dialing Rules.
    Make sure the profile created in Task 2 has been selected, and then click OK.
    Select Connect to establish an internet.
    Note: For instructions on connecting a computer to the Internet using a BlackBerry smartphone with CDMA as a tethered modem, see KB04664.

    Windows XP operating system

    Click Start > Settings > Network Connections.
    Double-click New Connection Wizard. The New Connection Wizard opens.
    Click Next.
    Select the Connect to the Internet option. Click Next.
    Select Set up my connection manually. Click Next.
    Select Connect using a dial-up modem. Click Next.
    If the Select a Device screen appears, select the Modem - Standard Modem check box. Click Next.
    In the ISP Name field, type a name for your connection. Click Next.
    In the Phone number field, type *99#. Click Next.
    Indicate which users will have access to the connection. Click Next.
    Type the user name and password provided by your service provider. Click Next.
    Click Finish.
    In the Connect window, click Properties.
    In the Properties window, verify that Modem - Standard Modem appears beneath the Connect using heading, and then click Configure.
    In the Modem Configuration window, clear the Enable hardware flow control check box and make sure none of the other check boxes are selected. Click OK. In the Properties window, click OK.
    Windows 2000 operating system

    Click Start > Settings > Control Panel.
    Double-click Network and Dial-up Connections.
    Note: The following is applicable for T-Mobile customers only:

    Under the networking tab in the properties window for the dial-up connection, clear the Enable LCP Extensions check box, as well as all check boxes beneath the PPP Settings window.

    Double-click Make New Connection. The Network Connection Wizard opens.
    Click Next.
    Choose Dial-up to private network. Click Next.
    In the Phone number field, type *99#. Click Next.
    Indicate which users will have access to the connection. Click Next.
    Type a name for your connection. Click Finish.
    In the Connect window, click Properties.
    In the Properties window, verify that Modem - Standard Modem is selected, then click Configure.
    In the Modem Configuration window, clear the Enable hardware flow control check box and make sure none of the other check boxes are selected. Click OK.
    In the Properties window, click OK.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Task 4

    Connect to the Internet using dial-up networking.

    Note: During this procedure, do not operate the BlackBerry® Browser or any third-party applications on the BlackBerry smartphone. An active data session might interfere with the modem connection. Also, make sure an ethernet connection is not active at the same time.

    Connect the BlackBerry smartphone to the computer.
    Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
    Click Start > Settings > Network Connections > <name of your new connection>.
    Type the user name and password provided by your service provider.
    Click Dial.
