Default BB wont connect to verichat or webmess.

OK so i just recently bought the blackberry 7230 for my T-mobile plan. I have the family Plan.
Now i have loaded both VeriChat and Web. Messenger 2.2 trial versions.
I have tried everything to get them to work, but for some reason it wont work.
In VeriChat i get an error that "Could Not Find a service book entry for IPPP"
And in web mess. i get an error that i " can't establish the connection"
I am not sure what i am suppose to do, am i suppose to unlock the wap feature or am i suppose to get something for wap, before trying these softwares?

1. Upgrade to BlackBerryOS 4
(I suggest the Vodafone 4.0.0.188 for your T-Mobile, it's the newest version)

2. Make sure you set up your Options->TCP->APN on your BlackBerry.
APN: wap.voicestream.com
Username: (Your T-Mobile username)
Password: (Your T-Mobile password)

To answer your questions:
T-Mobile does not yet have BlackBerryOS4...
BlackBerryOS4 is necessary for Verichat...
Vodafone BlackBerryOS4 will work on T-Mobile...

As for the T-Mobile username/password, it's just your existing account for your cellphone at the TMobile website. (Or was that for the T-Mobile BWC website? Not sure. But it's definitely one of your existing T-Mobile account username/passwords.)

Let me confirm that this works. I downloaded and installed OS 4.0
I set the options to wap.voicestream.com
The username was the one used on my.tmobile.com, which ends up being my mobile number.
The password is the password I used when I created an account on that site.
I was able to SSH after setting that up.
Hope this helps everyone...

bull3001,

Please make sure you delete your VENDOR.XML file before the Vodafone BlackBerryOS4 works. For instructions, please read the BlackBerryOS Download thread fully:
http://www.blackberryforums.com/viewtopic.php?t=1995

3.7.1.41 will not work with WebMessenger or VeriChat.

You need BlackBerryOS 4.0.0.xxx installed on your BlackBerry.

What is the error messages you are getting, in exact wording?

Which T-Mobile plan are you on?

Did you set APN to "wap.voicestream.com"?
