Default Alltel and 7250 Tethered Modem

Please Login to Remove!

I tried connecting with my 7250 for the first time in months and it connected but thats where it ended. My connection was sending all kinds of stuff but not receiving. So first I tried this: vB Easy Archive - BlackBerry as a Modem. But got the same results. So, I called up Alltel Tech Support but the dude told me, "RIM has told Alltel to no longer support tethered modems with the 7250 so I can't really say much more." Well, he did quietly say to change the MIP User ID to not include "alltel". Well, I tried replacing <mobile#> with <mobile#>, <mobile#>@test, <mobile#>@<mydomain>.com, and in combination with the method in the link above but still no luck. Any other suggestions or insight?
