    The internal firewall on the BB may be blocking the P2P sharing that is required of Limewire.

    It also might be because the connection is TOO SLOW to support fast downloads in Limewire. Just a thought. Do you really want to sit there for an hour while you download a file that's only like 4MB?

    That actually was a thought of mine as well. Knowing how slow a tethered connection is I couldn't see ever using it to download large files.

    8130 on Verizon or Sprint?

    you may just want to get an aircard man, because if it's Verizon and you go over their "Unlimited" data amounts, they may hit you with heavy overage fees.

    Disable sharing in limewire and download only. It should work then. I use mine to access winamp remote all the time via tethering. It downloads songs before it plays them and it works ok.
