    I used to have the pearl and would use it to connect as a modem to my computer all the time. I just got the blackberry flip and I am having problems connecting it as modem. Do I need to change something since I have new phone? Thanks

    I don't know what I did right, mine works great. On election night my WiFi at home died. I plugged in my BB and POOF! Internet!

    I had an 8120 and then an 8220. I used T-Mobile settings for tethering. I did not realize that for different phone models there would be different settings. You obviously tried to delete the old modem and create a new one?

    no I didn't try to delete the old modem. I haven't changed anything. All I have done is updated the desktop manager.

    And no I didn't use the settings for the curve since I had the pearl

    alright cool. Let me know if it works. I think I'm going to resort to calling T-mobile.
