    I am trying to setup my Blackberry Curve (8900) as a modem on my windows xp laptop. My BB is on the orange network (pay as you go). Not sure if it is possible... but so far:

    I have the latest Blackberry Manager software installed & BB connected (usb)
    The 'standand modem' is seen (Com4) & when i try to 'query' the modem i get:

    The modem failed to respond. Make sure it is properly connected and turned on. If it is an internal modem or is connected, verify that the interrupt for the port is properly set.

    Can anybody help please?
    Thanks

    You can always try Tether and see if it will work on your carrier.

    This is a very simple process. Go to your Desktop Manager and open it, Plug in your BB so the DM recognizes it and you see your PIN number.

    Now here is the tricky part... Use the part of the DM that says IP Modem and it will walk you through the process step by step and you will be good to go. If you need anymore help repost and ask but I bet you won't have to if you follow my advice.

    Good luck
