Hello everyone. I just got my first blackberry from t-mobile and have been trying for three days to tether it as a modem with no luck. I was on the phone with a t-mo rep for an hour and he couldn't help me. I think since he didn't have updated info for leopard.
Here is what I have done.
- I downloaded the updated leopard script from (the fibble site that i apparently can't post a link to)
- I set up the bluetooth device selecting research in motion for vendor and blackberry 8100 for model.
- I left user name and password blank and put "wap.voicestream.com" for phone number.
- After that was finished I went to the network page, entered wap.voicestream.com in the phone number field and guest / guest for user name and password.
Now the first time i tried to connect, it actually did, or at least it said it did. I was shown as connected and had perceived data flow however web pages would not open. When i went to a webpage in safari it did not give me the "not connected to the internet" message, however the progress bar wouldn't move, ichat wouldn't sign on, etc.
I disconnected and tried again but it wouldn't connect. After several unsuccessful attempts I erased all the settings, restarted the compy and tried again. Same thing happened. I connected but couldn't access anything. Subsequent connections were unsuccessful. It would just say connecting for a long time, then disconnecting, then i would get the error message "Could not negotiate a connection with the remote PPP server. Please verify your settings and try again"
Please someone help me with this. Oh and by the way. It was a clean install of leopard, not an upgrade. Thank you in advance.
