Default Anyone gotten blackberry to work with 802.1x EAP-TLS?

Please Login to Remove!

Heres my setup:

BES 5.01 MR1 for Exchange 2003
Bold 9700 with Blackberry Smart Card Reader v1.5
Desktop Manager 5.01
Wi-Fi infrastructure configured using FIPS, 802.11i with 802.1x and RADIA server, AES_CCM

The idea behind all this is to create a Wireless infrastructure that requires authentication using certs off a DoD CAC card. Our RADIA server has all the DoD root and intermediate certs and is ready to check em but the devices cant even attempt a connection to the AP?!! When configuring the device to connect to the AP, I am setting EAP-TLS, then selecting 1 out of the 4 certs on this CAC Card (not sure which one to use) then trying to connect, the error states, "Error Saving Certificate!" Which is strange because the DOD root cert, DOD intermediate cert AND all 4 CAC card certs are on the device and on the desktop manager certificate application. Anyone else done this before or have an idea what is going on? Any help is appreciated!!!
