Default Can't Tether / Start Mobile Internet

Please Login to Remove!

I have my Tour 9630 (Sprint) connected to my Windows 7 computer and I start BlackBerry Desktop Manager. I click on Tools>Start Mobile Internet... and I receive the following error message:

Failed to start Mobile Internet

The remote computer did not respond.

Please check your profile settings and make sure your radio is turned on. This service might also have been turned off by your wireless service provider or your administrator.

Anybody know what I can do to get it working?

Thanks.

Yep. You need to pay for tethering on Sprint.
