Default 8700 modem for Vista

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone been able to use there 8700 as a modem for a notebook running Vista? I have gone through the setup... but it still won't connect. I am hoping there is a trick to make it work. I am not having any problems with the desktop manager... but I cannot use it as a modem. Please help!

First of all, please don't double post.

Second of all, there is a post from yesterday afternoon by det293 which probably answers your questions. A little searching and reading goes a long way.

Sorry to be blunt, but that's the way it is.

Yes, but you need to use Desktop Manager 4.2 SP1 (uninstall any other versions before installing). Extract the package to a permanent directory (I use C:\Windows\Options\BBDesktop421), then right click BlackBerrySetup.exe and select Run as Administrator.

The process for setting it up is the same as for XP (basically). Find that here:
