The full instructions for setting up the modem can be found in the first post HERE.

Follow those directions, but make the modifications mentioned in my first post in this thread, and you should be able to get it working.

If you still can't get it working, pick-up your landline phone and call 1 (800) 937-8997 to talk to T-Mobile Customer Service. Make sure to choose the option for BlackBerry support. You'll get a rep that can talk you through the whole process and troubleshoot you along the way.

Default Process is also Documented...

I found a link to the tethered modem FAQ on BlackberryFAQ.com (unfortunately, since I'm a new user, I can't post the URL).

This is set up as a Wiki, so it can be edited by anyone. I added Jack T. Chance's string as an alternate for TMO.
