| | TMO 8320 Curve Modem Issue = Error 1717
Please Login to Remove!
I have used my 8320 Curve as a tethered modem (via USB Cable) for several years now. I tried to log in today (11 August) and got "Error Connecting to Blackberry Connection" message.
"Verifying user name and password...
Error 1717: The interface is unknown
If you continue to receive error messages, you can enable logging for analysis."
Last I used it as a tethered modem was in June, and had no problems whatsoever.
Log in for my BB Modem Connection is *99#, with the extra initialization string
I added wap.voicestream.com to my Blackberry APN, but no user name/PWD for that, since I don't recall doing that before. It failed with the same error without the wap.voicestream.com to the APN, so I don't know that's the problem.
Computer is a Thinkpad x61 Tablet running Vista Ultimate. Again, had used previously for a couple years w/o issue, last time being June of this year.
