    That's odd. I'm using my 8320 with T-Mobile as a modem right now, and I'm on it for hours. Keep in mind that you do need Windows XP Service Pack 2 to be able to use it as a modem. Also, make sure you have the most recent BlackBerry Desktop Software available. Try removing your battery and SIM card for 10 seconds and restart your PC.

    I wish I could be of more help, but I don't know exactly all the BB tech reps have done with you so far in regards to actual troubleshooting.
    Hi. :D

    If you have apps on your device that updates info automatically,( like a weather ,stock,rss feed, IM, etc.) this could interfere with your connection. Try turning those apps off. You might have too go into the app menu to acomplish this. Then turn them back on when your done with your session. Hope this helps.

    I would say to try it on anther computer. This will be a fast way to tell if it is the phone/service or the computer. If the issue follows the phone, it has to be something tmo can resolve with a new phone or sim. If it does not follow the phone, it has to be something with the computer (that rim or tmo may be able to fix.) Also, do you have the same problem with the web if you are just on the phone's internet? Does the desktop manager disconnect? Have you tried a different USB cord? Let us know what happens!
