sorry I tried to search but couldn't find anyone having same problem as me
basically i followed the instruction found in here
"After creating the dial-up network connection, open BlackBerry Desktop Manager and select Connection Settings from the Options menu. Instead of selecting USB-PIN, select the COM port (COM3 for example). Check Enable USB-to-serial converter compatibility.
Important: Do not click on Detect. Click OK instead. BlackBerry Desktop Manager shows disconnected. You should now be able to connect successfully."
I failed in this part, i couldn't find the COM8 port that standard modem is linked to, i only found COM3 port which is linked with a real 56k modem
as a result when i open up the Desktop manager, and try to connect to internet, the dialing just hang up at "dialing *99#"
any help will be appreciated thanks
