Default With TIM in Brazil - can be disconnected by mobile handset type?

Hi,

Please, I followed the instructions on Use your BlackBerry Pearl as a Bluetooth Modem under OS X - Fibble.org and "almost" worked.

I used to have my Nokia 6131 as bluetooth modem with my MacBook and it was great.
Tried to do the same with my Pearl and I got this:

Thu Aug 30 15:46:44 2007 : Connecting via BlackBerry 8100.
Thu Aug 30 15:46:44 2007 : Making EDGE connection.
Thu Aug 30 15:46:47 2007 : Serial connection established.
Thu Aug 30 15:46:47 2007 : Using interface ppp0
Thu Aug 30 15:46:47 2007 : Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/cu.Bluetooth-Modem
Thu Aug 30 15:46:48 2007 : Remote message: tim
Thu Aug 30 15:46:48 2007 : PAP authentication succeeded
Thu Aug 30 15:46:49 2007 : LCP terminated by peer
Thu Aug 30 15:46:52 2007 : Connection terminated.
Thu Aug 30 15:46:57 2007 : Serial link disconnected.

I called TIM in Brazil and they said that the service is not available for BlackBerry yet.

Question: is this possible?
If the Nokia 6131 worked, the same must happen for 8100, I guess, or am I wrong?


Thanks,
Fabio
