I called BB Data services at 18003043044 or 18003310500 option#1
Amazingly the woman helping actually had a BB! She lowered my bill by $20 since I was not intending to use enterprise connection and added my wap.cingular.com connection...checked the connection and it worked.
So...finally, connection as it should have been (and as it should have been sold to begin with) and less cash.
These forums help...thanks.
