Question Pls review my 8310 as modem set up

Please Login to Remove!

I've been struggling with this now for a few hours.

Would appreciate another set of eyes please to see if I've missed anything.

Here's what I have:

- 8310 with Blackberry 4.2 core apps and system software. The rest are 4.2.2.
- Windows XP operating system
- Blackberry Desktop Mgr 4.2.2.14
- Wireless provider is AT&T with Blackberry Unlimited Data Plan

STANDARD MODEM:
I've modified the Standard Modem per the instructions and entered below in the Advanced tab:
+cgdcont=1,"IP","proxy"

DIAL-UP NETWORKING:
I've created a Dial Up Networking profile where username and password as blank.
>> I've disabled "Use IP header compression" under TCP/IP.
>> I've also disabled "Enable Hardware Flow Control".

MODEM CHECK:
I've checked the blackberry modem and verified that it is working. Below is what I get when I do a modem query:

ATQ0V1E0 - Success
AT+GMM - BlackBerry IPmodem
AT+FCLASS=? COMMAND NOT SUPPORTED
AT#CLS=? COMMAND NOT SUPPORTED
AT+GCI? COMMAND NOT SUPPORTED
AT+GCI=? COMMAND NOT SUPPORTED
ATI1 - Research In Motion / BlackBerry IPmodem
ATI2 - Research In Motion / BlackBerry IPmodem
ATI3 - Research In Motion / BlackBerry IPmodem
ATI4 - Research In Motion / BlackBerry IPmodem
ATI5 - Research In Motion / BlackBerry IPmodem
ATI6 - Research In Motion / BlackBerry IPmodem
ATI7 - Research In Motion / BlackBerry IPmodem

DESKTOP MANAGER:
Connected to laptop via USB cable.

DIAL UP PROBLEM:
- Can't connect.
- Error 718 with blank username & password.


Tried the following:
Changed the Modem APN to wap.cingular and dial up acct to Username: [email address] and Password: CINGULAR1.

- No go. Error 734


Changed the APN to isp.cingular and dial up acct to Username: [email address] and Password: CINGULAR1.

- Same result. No go. Error 734

By the way, Desktop Manager connection didn't seem to matter. Connected via USB or USB-Serial didn't matter. (Task 4 of BlackBerry Search Results says use the USB-Serial)

I've rebooted both the laptop and the 8310. Still no go.

Quite frustrating.

I would appreciate your help with suggestions please.

Thanks,
eagle

There is a problem. All u have is unlimited bb data plan. But u want to use it as a modem. I assume u want to tether to a laptop...correct?

If yes, u have to call at&t cs to have them activate a tethering plan for u. I believe the plan is about $80/month.

make sure you are connected to desktop manager when trying to dial to connect!

Just to report: Success finally.

Used wap.cingular for APN.

Blank for username and password.
