Default 8130 internet help

Please Login to Remove!

I am new to this game and may be over my head. My phone came with a disc called VZAccess Manager Software. I installed this to my desktop computer so I could use the phone as a modem. The disc install went fine and when I connect to national-broadband it shows at the bottom that I am connected and ticks away time but nothing happens. When I click the web button the internet opens through AOL. I read the FAQ section and followed those steps and now besides the national broadband option I now have an option with my cell number on it. That option does not work at all. Can someone walk me through this? Is AOL supposed to open? I have maanger running while I am on aol but it doesnt seem faster.
Thanks,
Brian

To use your BlackBerry as a modem with Verizon you have to add on a $15/month tethering plan. If you dont plan on doing that you can uninstall VZAccess Manager.

the data plan is automatically added at the time the device is activated. to tether its an additional $15 per month. Then you have your voice plan to add to that as well. The sales rep should have notified you of this at point of sale.
