Success - T-Mobile talked me through it - I ended up deleting and reinstalling the modem and it worked. 19.2 KPBS connection but I didnt have a very good signal.

I have to say this is a very cool feature.

Yep they guy took me through the entire process and even had the init string needed. He said "This is a new feature we have just added". Damn near fell off my chair. From totally blocked ports and denial to "Hey check out the cool modem type feature" In two weeks.

I have the 7250, XP and DM 4.0 running. Just tried and I couldn't even get the modem recongnized by XP. Tried manually installing and still no dice. I was able to get my Smartphone (Verizon) connected to my laptop a while back so not sure if this is my issue or Verizon has deny access to the modem functionality which I heard in another forum.

After installing the new Desktop software and such for my 7510 I saw that a new Standard Modem was added on COM3. Like others, XP won't ever see it when I do diagnostics.

I have several questions about this. First, I removed the modem while I was fiddling around with some settings and now I don't think I have it added back in correctly. I tried adding a Standard Modem back on COM3, but my choices are for specific speed modems like 33.6 or 56k, etc. So I added a Standard 56k Modem on COM3, but now the Hardware ID is different when I go to diagnostics (it shows moto1_gen). Before it showed something like genmdm or something, I forget.

Any way to get it back to what BB installed without reinstalling all the software?

Next, I was fiddling around with the BB Handheld Manager and I was playing with Handheld Connection settings. I ended up enabling COM10 and COM11 at various times which now has consumed those ports. When I try to Disable them I either get a blue screen of death or else the computer just freezes with no blue screen.

All that in an attempt to have my 7510 work as a modem, oh well. Any ideas?

Thanks,
David

Default Nextel 7520

I say we take up a collection to pledge to the first person to get the nextel 7520. I think the incentive will be the motivation to decipher the problem. I pledge $10 via paypal to the first posted solution. Any other Nextel 7520's care to join me???

I'll be upgrading to the 7520 probably in the next month so I'll put in $10 from paypal as well.

After upgrading Desktop Manager to Version 4, 7100g gets recognized and responds as a standard modem. Have been getting nowhere with customer support at Cingular however to get the required services to my account. Still getting 734 error.

Most recently received the following from BB Support at Cingular:

"...As for using the device as a modem, you would need to add a "Laptop Connect" package to your account. The features mentioned in your email are no longer offered, so I am unable to add them to your account. The current laptop connect packages are as follows:

$24.99 10 MB $.006/KB
$34.99 20 MB $.004/KB
$44.99 50MB $.002/KB
$74.99 Unlimited N/A

You may reply to this email to let me know which package you would like added to your account."


Needless to say this is not the solution I had hoped for...

Anyone having any luck recently with the folks at Cingular on this subject?

Count me in. I can't get passed the query modem any more, it turns off my wireless (radio).

OK, the way I see it we have pledges of $30 to the first tech to get the 7520 functioning as a modem for a laptop connection. Lets get it to $100. To pledgors, remember your "word is your bond" and we must make good on this to attract real talent.

Default Quick: Need modem drivers

I'm out of town and don't have my BB CD with me. I am using a new Laptop and I installed the desktop software from TMO's link (not from the CD). Therefore, I don't have a folder under Prog Files/RIM/ that has anything to do with a modem.

Is there a way that I can download the modem driver and install on my laptop? Anyone have a link?

I thought I posted this already, but I don't see it...

BB 7290
Net: Rogers Wireless
Desktop: 4.0
BB OS: 4.0
PC OS: XP Home
No BES/No MDS

BB Modem: booya!

This took a little playing around. I finally deleted the Network connection and the "Standard Modem" rebooted everything, and installed a new "Standard 56K modem".

I re-registered, requested new service books, ensured the proper APN (internet.com for my network). I rebooted pretty much after each new item. This should be entirely uncecesary, but I didnt feel like getting to the end and then wondering if it would have worked had I rebooted...

Voila! I'm back online with the BB Modem on my 7290 4.0

Yup. DM is up and running, everything else works great. Maybe this is a limitation of the 7100g????

Newbie question: Seeing that some are having trouble getting the 7100g to work as a modem, typically are the more problems with this if you buy directly from Cingular versus someone like eaccess? I know Cingular has temporarily suspended selling them, but for this question assume that they are offering them currently.

Default 7100t Modem NOW SUPPORTED by T-Mobile

I spoke with Level 3 Blackberry Support this afternoon and they spent 20 minutes walking me through the process of getting the 7100t set up as a laptop modem.

The Initialization that they had me use was:
