Thanks to all who figured this out and for the turorial. I was able to follow the instructions with the only difference being in the extra initialization string for the modem. Here is what worked for me: +cgdcont=1,"IP","wap.cingular"
I just did a few speed checks using speakeasy which shows I'm averaging 180K down and 25k up.
Thanks PW. That info put me over the top. (I'm on it now and I think the speed is pretty good. Says 230 kbps)
SanFran ..... thank you for the great instructions....works like a charm - on the first try.
sameiro 25 .... have a look at the second post on page 1 .... great info per phone carrier. Follow San Fran's instruction and then enter your carrier'S specific info. Best of luck .... someone on this board will have your answer !!
Live everyday like its your last - no regrets !!!
When I click Query Modem in Phone and Modem Options I get an "OpenComm" error: "The port that the modem is attached could not be opened. This may be the result of a hardware conflict. Check the device manager to verify all devices are functional."
All ports seem fine.
"Standard Modem" is on COM4. Under Ports in the Device Manager the RIM Virtual Serial Port v2 is listed on both COM4 and COM5.
I've gotten mine set up and it worked great while I traveled over the holidays - thanks SF your step-by-step worked great. but now I'm back home with my wireless network and the BB keeps wanting to connect - how do I turn it off, it isn't set at default (the home network is) I don't want to delete the connection because it was a pain to setup. I just want it to stop trying to connect all the time. any suggestions?
I am having this same problem and it is driving me nuts. If anyone can help I would much appreciate it.
Mine used to work like a charm. But I got a new Pearl, and it's sketchy...basically, it'll let me connect initially, but the Internet will stop working after a few minutes. It'll still say the Blackberry is connected, but all my my computer applications will disconnect. Any suggestions?
