yeah, got a data plan so that is not the problem, here is what i found out directly from the folks who put out the Windows Live Search:
I can confirm you the application you installed (Live Search for BlackBerry) is designed for BlackBerry and is not related to the Windows Mobile version of Live Search (even if the look and the features are similar).
Since Live Search for BlackBerry is distributed as an independent third party application, it works only if such applications are allowed to do network requests, which may depend on both your carrier network policies and your subscription type.
We support three connection modes in Live Search for BlackBerry: Direct HTTP, BES/MDS and WAP Gateway, but for CDMA devices like yours only Direct HTTP and BES/MDS are possible (WAP is specific to GPRS/Edge carriers). BES/MDS is for corporate devices administrated through the company’s BlackBerry Enterprise Server, Direct HTTP is for individual subscribers. You can try both modes if you are unsure of your configuration (in Options > Enter your network configuration parameters).
But some BlackBerry data plans may be limited to Email & Web browsing and Live Search will not work in this case. It is strange that it worked for you before and stopped working, maybe your carrier changed something in its network configuration or in your subscription. I tried to find more information on Cellular South BlackBerry configuration on the Internet but did not find much, so it is unfortunately difficult to be more specific. We have tested the application on only two CDMA carriers (Sprint and Verizon Wireless).
If someone can tell me configuration parameters for my CDMA phone using HTTP please let me know.
