Default Having trouble with Blackberry 8703

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 8703 through Sprint and have the unlimited data plan and use it as a wireless modem while at client sites. Last week i could not get it to work. Anytime I would connect Blackberry to laptop it would continue to sat "Connect your phone". I have re-installed the PCS connection Manager, Desktop Manager, and don't know what else to do.

Hasanyone had this problem and can help me how to fix.

Thank you

I think you would have a better response if this was posted in the 8700 forum.

Default Having the same problem

It just started. I connect my phone and it tries to connect. It goes from 1XEV to 1x then disconnects and just keeps doing it over and over again.

I have full EVDO reception and can surf the internet from the phone just fine. There is something happening when I plug it in and use the Sprint software. I'm having this problem no matter where I go so it is not a reception problem. I'm a pilot and have had this problem in several cities now starting a few days ago

Make certain you have your BB Desktop manager software open as well.
