Blackberry Error connecting to internet...
I have been trying to connect my blackberry 8700v to the internet using the blackberry Desktop manager,but i am really
disappointed. The internet is working on the handset but my laptop is unable to connect to the internet using the phone. Though
the laptop connected to internet using the NOKIA phone.
Error when "authenticating on network" appears on the screen
"BlackBerry Desktop Manager failed to start an IP modem session using the connected device:
The connection was terminated because the remote computer did not respond in a timely manner.
Please check your profile settings and make sure your radio is turned on. This service might also have been turned off
by your wireless service provider or your administrator."

My handset is also displaying that the EDGE service is active. Moreover I am not able to access any of my e-mail
services even through the handset.
I just want is to surf the web with my laptop and the blackberry acting as a modem. I have read many blogs and forums for the
solution but could not find one.
Customer Care: Vodafone's customer care is shit. Sorry for the language but they deserve that. So I had to walk 2 kms to reach the
service center and I was told that to use my blackberry as a modem, "Vodafone LIVE" was not enough and I was needed to
activate "Mobile Connect" on my connection which required me to give a monthly rental of Rs. 199 with no freebies.
If someone could help, then please do, else I would have to buy another phone for myself.. :(
I ahve also followed the instructions given on this blog, but they were also for no avail...
