Default Basic Questions-BB manager and modem

Please Login to Remove!

I'm going through the FAQ to set up my 8700 with tmobile to use as a modem.

<Step 5
<Connect Your BlackBerry
<Make sure your BlackBerry is connected by USB cable, and your BlackBerry <Handheld Manager is running (just launch BlackBerry Desktop to run it.)

When you turn your BB on does the Handheld manager normally run automatically? My BB is stock.

If so then #7
<Verify The Modem Driver Is Functioning
<Go to Control Panel -> Phone & Modem Options. In the Modems tab, you <should see a new Standard Modem on a new port

When I do this I don't see a new modem being listed.

Any ideas why not?

Thanks

Do you have Destop Manager running during these steps. Think you need to.

I thought the Desktop Manager started automatically when I turned on the BB.

If not how do start it?

Thanks
