One of the suggestions I can say is to try installing the Rogers 4.0.0.219 instead of the T-Mobile 4.0.0.198 BlackBerryOS. I have heard of many reports that changing to a different version of BlackBerryOS 4 can fix the problem on select models of 7100 and 7290.

Thumbs up YEAH! My 7100t Tmob works as a modem!!!

My Adelphia broadband died again yesterday, I got my 7100t 2 weeks ago to cover my ass, as most of my income is over the net (broadband always is dieing around here). Using BB browser I didn't have full ebay functionality, but could bid. Lycos email never connected, but yahoo and gmail worked fine. Paypal have very limited use, couldn't see who actually made payments or how much they were. Using BB as a modem is great says 115.2K, doesn't seem all that quick, but much faster than BB browser! Using XP sp2, did have error and blue screen, forgot to disable IP header comp. works fine now. I love it when stuff works like it should. Yes I am going to be pissed when tmob screws this up! Has anyone figured out how to get rid of tzones and tmobs bookmarks?
Thanks from Orlando.

Default TMO GPRS & using laptop berry modem

Does anyone have or know if where we can get speed stats for TMO GPRS market by market or across the board ??

See below here for ping latency I'm getting. Also, my mobile originated SMS has been screwed up since I started using the berry as modem from the laptop. I can receive ok but not send. I keep getting a packet error - maybe its trying to send the SMS via GPRS but the connection wasn't closed out properly on the disconnect ?? I've also tried resetting a few times but that hasn't fixed it yet unfortunately.


Here's a snip on a ping to google using laptop and 7100T on TMO:

Default Error 734 with Cingular using a 7290

Just to muddy the water a bit more regarding this issue. I have been through the same routine as many others in this thread including the run around from the Cingular reps telling me I don't have this service, will need to add it and pay by the kB, Thank you for choosing Cingular, etc. etc...

I found out that when my account was first established (I have a BB through my company) that it was an AT&T Wireless service. So, before giving up, I reconfigured the modem using the AT&T Wireless settings on this site and it works!! This is contrary to everything the Cingular moron told me. So, for what it's worth, even though everything about my service says I use Cingular, the AT&T Wireless settings work fine and based on what the rep told me, I am not being charged because the service is not enabled on my account.

Maybe I missed this in the setup instructions, but what was the Rogers phone number I enter, all others were listed...

I was able to get mine working using

AT+cgdcont=1,"IP","wap.cingular","",0,0

but I am getting HORRIBLE throughput. I mean maybe 300 baud? Just the sparce login page to my isp webmail took 60 seconds. I pushed 100,000 bytes in 4 minutes of connectivity.

I have not contacted Cingular..so I do not have any of the features added that everyone speaks of in this thread. That could be affecting it?

I am just trying it with a basic unlimited BB plan and the configs from this site running XP SP2.

I think I will try this in a different location and see if going from 2 bars to 4 or 5 improves the speed....doesn't seem this slow browing from the device though.

Question 7250 as Modem with Verizon

I tried following the instructions for [User] Use BlackBerry As Modem For Laptop! [NEW VERSION 2.0] HOW TO: BlackBerry As Modem For Laptop.

I am a fairly new Blackberry user...

I was unable to get my 7250 (Verizon) to work. I realize that you did not have anyone that said it worked, I am just confirming that it did not work. i was able to follow mostly all the steps with no probelm, but when trying to use as modem, it just would not work. I had the 7250 hooked to USB and desktop manager was running. I was really hping the 7250 would work as a modem wirelessly but I would accept plugged inot device by USB.

Any ideas??

I am with Telus. I was able to set up everything but got the error - 678. I did not enter anything under advanced (no apn string). Does anyone have anything else I should try?

That may unfortunately be typical, but some people have been able to push 100,000 bytes in approximately 30 to 60 seconds during good conditions. Not during peak period in a crowded downtown core, though.

You may wish to tweak your MTU slightly, as well as try using alternative DNS servers that may react faster.

I don't think it'll work with Telus at this time. Maybe after the EV-DO upgrade, who knows?

Also, 7250 has no such thing as APN which is not used on CDMA networks.

Angry 7100t Modem Connection Question...

I have a 7100t, got it the first day it came out. I have never been able to get it running as a modem. I recently upgraded to 4.0, and thought I would try again. Im running this on a Dell D600, wth XP-Pro SP2

When I try to add the RIM modem to 'Phone and Modem Options', I browse to c:\Program Files\Commmon Files\Research in Motion\Modem Drivers\,

I get the following error:

'The specified location does not contain information about your hardware'

There are three files in the above folder: RimSerial.inf, rimserial.cat and RimSerial.sys

The .inf file starts with:

[Version]
Signature="$WINDOWS NT$"
Class=Ports
ClassGUID={4D36E978-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Provider=%RIM%
DriverVer=06/11/2004,1.1.0.2
CatalogFile=RimSerial.cat

Sort of funadamental to get this running I'm thinking ..

Any ideas??

Just adding my 2 cents...

Got Cingular in Atlanta to work quite well.

I followed Rhinton's suggestions above plus the original post for modem usage.

I also had to add MEdia Basic to my BB account before it would work. Without this - I kept getting Error 734. BTW - MEdia Basic is free when added to BB accounts on Cingular...

This is great news. Are you paying $01/kb? Does Media Basic show up on your online feature list at $0.00?

How'd you find that out? The cingular reps I spoke too seemed very confused. I've gotten 8 different stories about this out of 8 tries.
