Default Limewire won't connect to the 'net

Please Login to Remove!

When I use my blackberry pearl as a bt modem on my mac and I start Limewire, Limewire doesn't connect to the internet. I just get a message saying "connecting to the internet" forever. I'm using Limewire Pro 4.13 Beta.

Can someone help me figure out how to get this to work. Thanks.

I found that TMo along with other carriers block peer-to-peer access. I list only the one from TMO since that is what you have on you avatar. Its from UK but applies to US also.
T-Mobile Fair Use - Mobile Phones from T-Mobile
There may be ways around this but none to my knowledge. Read the first paragraph, hope this helps.
