Default getting sprint connection mgr to recognize my BB

Please Login to Remove!

I could use some help. I'm trying to use Sprint connection mgr with my new 8703; I've downloaded and installed the software from sprint, made sure it's the latest version, etc. It installs seamlessly, but when I plug the phone into my laptop, the connection manager simply will not recognize it-- nothing happens.
I'm stymied and would appreciate any assistance on this! Otherwise I really like the BB-- it's wonderful. I would just very much like to use it as a modem to permit me to connect the laptop in areas where I can't get any wifi signals.

Thanks

Hey, I did some reading elsewhere on this board... tried something that was in regards to another BB model-- said CM wouldn't work unless handheld mgr was running-- So, I fired up the desktop mgr and tried again-- viola! It recognized the phone and I believe it worked.
Any thoughts? Is this the only way CM will work?

Thanks,

DrK.
