You don't neet to use Shark modem. I recently figured out how to use it.

This is what I used. My service provider is Telus and I used *99# with a blank username and password and it worked on my phone. Follow the instructions below.

1. Click Next

2. Select "Connect To The Internet" then Next

3. Select "Set up my connection manually" then Next

4. Select "Connect using a dial-up modem" then Next.

5. Check only the Standard Modem (if prompted).

6. Give the connection a name such as "BlackBerry Modem", then Next.

7. On the next screen, pick one of the following phone numbers, depending on your carrier:
....If you use GSM/Cingular/AT&T/TMobile: Enter phone number *99#
....If you use iDEN/Nextel/Telus: Enter phone number S=2
....If you use CDMA/Verizon/Sprint/Bell Canada: Enter phone number #777

8. Click Next.

9. On the next screen, pick one of the following, depending on your carrier:

....If you use Cingular Blue, AT&T or Nextel:
.........Username: (blank)
.........Password: (blank)

....If you use Rogers Canada:
.........Username: wapuser1
.........Password: wap

....If you use Cingular Orange:
.........Username:
.........Password: CINGULAR1

....If you use T-Mobile:
.........Username: (Your existing TMobile.com Username)
.........Password: (Your existing TMobile.com Password)

....If you use Verizon, replace 8005551212 with your phone number:
.........Username:
.........Password: 8005551212

....If you use Sprint:
.........Username: (Your existing Sprint PCS Username)
.........Password: (Your existing Sprint PCS Password)

....If you use Bell Mobility, replace 8005551212 with your phone number:
.........Username:
.........Password: (Your Bell Mobility Voicemail PIN)

10. Clear all checkboxes ("Use...when anyone..." and "Make this the default...")

11. Click Finish

Default Blackberry as a Modem

I cannot get a connection, I get an error message 692 Hardware Problem, any suggestions? I was not able to leave the user name blank, perhaps that fouled things up?

I would love confirmation of anyhone using the 8130 with or without sharkmodem on verizon. Paying for a data plan for the 1 time every other month I need to use it as a modem is just a rip off.
