    Check www.sprint.com/downloads.

    I know the aircards support vista, but I dont recall PAM supporting vista.

    As of right now there appears to be no solution for PAM and Sprint PCS Manager.

    I have contacted my Data Solutions Rep and I am awaiting their response.

    Will respond when I hear something.

    Ok, as per the SW Florida Data Solutions Rep, Windows Vista does not support PAM & Sprint PCS Manager. There may be a solution that Sprint is not aware of, and as soon as someone figures it out will let you know.

    What about this thread, does it help?

    ok this worked perfectly ...thanks to Howards forum


    Yes there is!

    First, go here:

    https://www.blackberry.com/Download...cd4a6926644T R

    And download Blackberry Desktop 4.2 service Pack 1. This version of the desktop software includes drivers for Vista (including x64 versions).

    Then, follow these instructions:

    http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/sear...0%200%204316327

    You'll be using the instructions for Windows XP, though the steps might be a bit different on Vista to get to the "set up a new connection" dialog. Note that for Sprint, you should leave the username and password fields blank.

    Lastly, count yourself lucky. I think Blackberries and the Novatel USB modem are the only devices on Sprint that can currently tether with Vista.

    I've used these steps on Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit, and they work well. The difference here is that you have to have Blackberry Desktop running and recognizing your Blackberry, instead of Sprint Connection manager.

    And yes, Sprint has taken WAY too long to come out with a Vista compatible version of their software.
