Go into Options / Advanced / Host Routing Table
Click the wheel and select "Register Now". See what happens.
Also, can y'all tell me why on the Desktop Manager when I go to 'Application Loader' there is nothing listed. Is that normal?
Yes, that is normal. You will ultimately need to download the 8700c handheld O/S from one of the carrier web sites. After this is working, please check out the Sticky Thread FAQs at the top of the General BlackBerry Discussion forum. Loads of details there, including the locations on where to download the latest handheld OS versions.
