While connecting did you chose the computer modem or the BB modem? While setting up the connection, please ensure that you select the correct modem. This is similar to a scenario where you try to connect to ISPs like AOL using dial up connection. Now if you forget to connect your modem and phone line you will be getting a similar message.

Hope this helps !!!

Make sure you have Desktop Manager running; otherwise your connectoid won't see the Blackberry/Modem.

Thanks for some of the tips. I didn't know both had to be running. I have a new one though. It looks like it tries to connect but goes into a call failing. Tried the ap files for the tmobile phones at different port speeds heck got best result at 300 before it failed.
