    Go to Options/Advanced Options/TCP and put in where it says APN:
    wap.voicestream.com

    And then save your options and try to login again.

    Thank you!

    Do I need a username or password for APN? I put in the info you suggested and still no luck.
    Currently, my Blackberry is data only no phone or text, do I need to activate phone and/or text for this program to work?

    nettie,
    I noticed that you have listed cingular as your carrier. the APN information is different for each carrier. here is the TCP info for Cingular. go to OPTIONS, ADVANCED OPTION , TCP

    **TCP info is case sensitive i think

    APN: wap.cingular
    Username for APN: WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
    Password for APN: cingular1

    pin me if you have any questions 203659CA

    Re: AIM for Blackberry?

    If you entered the TCP info for Cingular correctly and still getting an error "invalid connection string: malformed address. returning null connection" , you will have to call Cingular BB support center and make sure WAP access is turned on/ activated. The WAP access i think is included in the unlimited data plan for cingular. By default cingular forgets to activate the WAP access properly when you open a new account.

    FYI nettie resolved the problem after calling cingular to turn WAP access on.
