Do you have a data plan? First things first....you'll need a data plan. 2nd, look into getting Jivetalk. It's the best im program I've witnessed for the blackberry. And the 8100 can be used as a modem even though I've never gotten around to doing that myself.

That's because you don't have a "Blackberry" data plan on it. Call AT&T and swap the medianet 200 for a "Blackberry" plan and all will work as it should.
