    Yes I was getting a ppp error, but as I'm typing now I am connected using
    my blackberry...Does this go thru Blackberry or SunCom.
    What you think?

    I believe it should be going through your provider, SunCom, since they are the one's providing the 'service'...

    Nonetheless, I'll let someone else who uses this sort of feature confirm that.

    I'm new to BBs and here and I have Suncom also. I don't know how long you've had Suncom as a provider, but they don't like their service being used excessively if have the Unplan or anything else. I've been with them for almost 5 years and have occasionally had "usage" problems with them. This may be why you're experiencing a problem using the BB as a modem. I have the Unplan and the Local BIS for my BB and only pay about $70 a month for unlimited usage of everything. They say "unlimited" but you have to watch out because their system will pop up flags for excessive use and they'll find ways to limit your usage or want more money from you.
