Default DM and more on a 7290

Well im new here and already ive learned a lot about the 7290 i just got from a friend of mine who gave it to me. I was excited to just have something new to mess around with. im a native linux user so i threw xp AND win7 on a virtual machine (virtualbox) and put desktop manager v4.1 ( i heard that at least v5.0 needs os v4.2 to work right while my 7290 is running on 4.0.2.56)

so im unable to get it to connect to desktop manager, "Blackberry Smartphone" shows up in device manager, drivers appear to be installed correctly. I know that theres a small time frame to which you can get the BB to sync to the computer but ive never found it, when i connect while the BB is on, it shows no difference except the charging icon next to the battery. should i try syncing while its off? when is the moment i should hit "detect"? Also there isnt a sim card in the device, does that matter when trying to sync, i figured it just needed the pin.

also i was looking into using a generic non-smartphone data plan for my BB, but in the US, it looks like theyve been buckling down on this usage. does anyone have luck still using a generic data plan with a BB? if so was there any options or settings that needed to be applied?

ive used the search function to the best of my ability and google doesnt really shine light on the topic at hand. anyone offer any help? it would be GREATLY appreciated.
