finally got my Blackberry 8900 to work as a modem using ORANGE RO as my service provider on Windows Vista platform.

Hope it helps!

1.If you have not already, download and install the Blackberry Desktop Software.
2.Go to the Windows Device manager. Quickest way: Start > Run > devmgmt.msc
3.Click + button next to Modems, double click xxx8220;Standard Modemxxx8221;
4.Click the Advanced tab
5.Enter this into the empty box (no leading space):
AT+CGDCONT=1,xxx8221;IPxxx8221;,xxx8221;INTERNETxxx8221;
6.Hit Okay, and close device manager.

Also, then
1 From your computer, click Start, Control Panel, then Network and Sharing Center.
2 Set up a connection or a net work then Next.
3 Select Set up dial up connection.
4 Select the Standard Modem, then Next.
5 Enter this as the phone number: *99# xxx8211;> Next
6 UN -
7 PW -
8 Open the desktop manager and plug in your Blackberry via the USB cable. Make sure it detects the Blackberry as connected.
9 Go back to your network connections window (step 7), and double click the new Dialup icon.
10 Your dialup number should already be saved. Then just click xxx8220;Dialxxx8221;

it has been mentioned on other threads, but the 5.01 version of desktop manager has the modem feature built into it so you don't need to make any new connection settings on the computer, 5.01 hasn't been released yet but there are leaked copies about, its very simple to use and also shows you how much data has been sent and received in each session. make sure you have a data plan though otherwise you will get a nice big nasty bill from your service provider.
