    I'm attempting to use my BB Bold 9650 as a modem for my PC. The error is that I need to go to my Profile settings and turn the radio 'ON'. I don't know how to do this. Can anyone help or have experience with this please?
    Can I use BB as a modem for a Mac as well? It doesn't seem like the Desktop manager has IP Modem in the menu for Mac.

    I've been fighting this one all morning long it seems. I will admit this is the first time I tried to do this. I have a Sprint BB 8330 Curve. Im suppose to be able to use it to tether my laptop but and at first it seems like it will work but and my blackberry even says "Modem Mode Enabled" and then a second later it errors out on my PC saying ERROR 678: The remote computer did not respond. Whats going on?! Has any one come across this?

    07.30.08***EVEN BETTER NEWS FOR BB USERS***
    If you are on the Sprint network all you need to do is download Sprint SmartView
    and let it do the work for you. AFter you have installed the software (which says it's 37mb but after it was all said and done my PC says 57mb) all you gotta do is plug ur Blackberry in to the USB cable and the Sprint View Software will handle the rest. Lemme know if you have any Q's!!

    06.12.08 NEW INFO UPDATE ******Good news for you Addicts with Sprint!!!! If you have an unlimited data plan for your Berry (ie. Simply Everything Plan), you can use these instructions to configure your Berry as a modem WITHOUT paying the additional $39.99 p/m for the Phone As Modem feature and WITHOUT incurring usage charges!!!! I tested this theory with another CB member who has the Simply Everything Plan & doesn't have the Phone As Modem feature. I checked the acct. throughout the bill cycle to make sure no usage charges were stacking up and there wasn't a single one!!!!

    Now, the 2nd lil tid bit of info was sent to me by a CB member in Mexico with a few tweaks to the set up instructions for other's in Mexico wanting to use their Berry's as Modems. So, here ya go!!!!......

    Under IMPORTANT SPECIAL CONFIGURATION STEP
    I added +cgdcont=1,"IP","internet.itelcel.com"

    USER NAME: webgprs / PASSWORD: webgprs2002 / # DIALED: *99#

    My carrier is Telcel.
    P.S. This was done on a blackberry 8100 and I can not yet confirm if their will be and additional charge.



    ***PLEASE READ***
    T-Mobile is the ONLY carrier I can guarantee DOES NOT apply adtn'l charge for using this capability. For charges other carriers apply, most are mentioned throughout the posts here.
    **ALSO**
    Wish I did, but I don't have the instructions for set up on a MAC. T-Mobile will provide MAC OS instructions to you, just call 1.800.937.8997 or 611 from a T-Mob phone & ask for Tier III Tech Support.
    note: don't call from the phone you are setting up as a modem.


    Why pay for internet service for your Blackberry & for your home PC? Your Blackberry's gotcha covered, it can do both. All you have to to do is set up yoru computer to recognize your Blackberry as a modem. And, of course, you also have to have an appropriate internet feature on your Blackberry from your carrier. These instructions were created for PC's running XP, but I know for a fact that this will also get the job done with Visa, Vista Premium, & Win 2000. The steps taken to get to the appropriate windows may differ a bit, but the actual set up is the same in all. Here ya go, hope this helps.!!

    Verify that you have the Desktop Manager version 4.2 and the software bundle that came with the handheld installed on your computer.

    Query the modem, using the modems properties:

    1 Click Start, Settings, Control Panel.
    2 Double-click on Phone and modem options.
    3 Click on the Modems tab.
    4 Left-click on the modem installed above. (Standard Modem or Standard Modem over Bluetooth)
    5 Click Properties.
    6 Click the Diagnostics tab.
    7 Click Query Modem.
    8 If dialog shows in the empty box, the modem is responding, then continue with the below steps. Otherwise contact WDS Tier III.
    9 Click the Advanced tab.
    10 Check the Extra Initialization Command feild and ensure it is correct.

    Enter the initialization command:

    1 From your computer, click Start.
    2 Click Control Panel.
    3 Click Phone and Modem Options.
    4 Click the Modems tab.
    5 Scroll to Standard Modem.
    6 Click Properties.
    7 Click the Advanced tab.
    8 In the Extra Initialization Command field, enter the following:

    IMPORTANT SPECIAL CONFIGURATION STEP
    Add only ONE of the following Extra initialization commands with the appropriate carrier specific command:

    TMOBILE USA
    +cgdcont=1,"IP","wap.voicestream.com"

    Rogers Users
    +cgdcont=1,"IP","internet.com"

    Cingular Blue/AT&T
    +cgdcont=1,"IP","proxy"

    Cingular Orange
    +cgdcont=1,"IP","ISP.CINGULAR"

    UK Vodafone
    +cgdcont=1,"IP","internet"

    Verizon - Keep blank
    Nextel/ iDEN (untested) - Keep blank

    15 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.
    16 In the Connect window, select Save this user name and password for the following users.
    17 Select the appropriate option.
    18 Confirm that the is running.
    *IMPORTANT: BlackBerry Desktop Manager must be running, or error 692 will appear during the dial up attempt. (i have 1 connection set for the standard modem, usb cable, & 1 connection set for the standard modem over bluetooth and have no problems getting a connection without connecting to desktop manager)
    19 Open the web browser and navigate to any website to test the connection.

    If the laptop/PC connects but Internet Explorer does not, follow these steps:

    1 From Internet Explorer, click Tools, then Internet Options....
    2 Click the Connections tab.
    3 From Dial-up and Virtual Private Network settings, select T-Mobile.
    4 Click Set Default.
    5 Select Dial whenever a network connection is not present.
    6 Click OK.
    7 Click OK again.

    That should do it!!
    great!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have a question.

    On the phone the ip resolves to rdns.blackberry.net

    with "modem mode enabled" the pc resolves to xxxx.tmodns.net

    why is there this change?

    on most tethering software however, the pc resolves to rdns.blackberry.net because it goes right through the phone...

    so the modem mode function creates something im not sure if this is good or bad
