Default Tether TMobile Wing To AT&T Blackberry 8820 via Bluetooth

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys,

Need help with's driving me insane.

I have a TMobile Wing with a cooked rom (OpenTouch 4.0) and want to tether it to my 8820 to use its "unlimited" data connection. I can pair the Wing and the 8820 together via BT without a problem. On the Wing, I can see the Dial Up Networking option as a service provided by the 8820 and I have it checked. I created a connection to use the BB's Bluetooth modem, it sees the 8820, I select it and enter the correct # to dial (*99#) and no username or password, when I finish setting it up I try and connect and it errors out. I'm assuming that it's because WinMo doesn't have a field for one to enter the extra modem strings where I can enter the AT&T APN. So how can I go about doing this? I tried a registry hack which supposedly enables that string field in Windows Mobile but it didn't work.

I have my laptop tethered to the 8820 with no problems, so I know that the phone is capable of doing it, so your guidance is appreciated

*Here's to hoping someone here is familiar with Windows Mobile*
