Default Is there a "TAP Gateway" service for BB's through

I use an answering service that sends alpha messages to pagers through a "TAP" protocol where a modem dials a number and transmits the information over phone lines. Is there a service that will receive the incoming calls and direct them to either the BB or t-mob so I can receive these pages over my 7100t? I could go with a more tech aware answering service, but these people give good service. TIA.

This was posted on the forum dated January 21st, 2005. Seems to be the only number that works.

I have just configured text messaging to a T-Mobile IPAQ 6315 using T-Mobile's TAP service. I used 425-396-4560 ast the terminal phone number with the following settings from a previous post:

Baud Rate - 9600
Data Bits - 7
Parity - Even (e)
Stop Bits - 1

We use What's Up to send pages to a few phones. I configured the modem properties in Windows as specified above. I also had to edit the Pager Notification's Pager COM Settings to Baud Rate: 1200. The configuration took place on January 21st 2005.

SOme of this may work:

They have TAP-to-SMS paging solutions that will work on a BlackBerry.
