And now, a week or two later, this refuses to work. No amount of rebooting, resetting, re-everythinging has made a connection possible.
One day it worked, the next it steadfastly refuses to connect.
As much as I like the BlackBerry, not being able to move files on and off of the device is a BIG hassle. This should be easy.

1) Have you tried with a different PC ?
Maybe you saved the wrong password in your file manager and it doesn't ask you for credentials but just use those you provided at first when you saved them.
2) Have you enabled the development mode ?
It's mandatory otherwise you cannot reach your BB by network
3) Have you enabled the Wifi Access and set the password ?
If you reset your device you need to set them again.
4) Have you tried to run this command: ?
ping 169.x.x.x (your development mode IP)
Sometimes when you enable the development mode with a different IP you need to turn it on and off many times before it's set the right IP address.

I forgot one thing.
Are you connecting the device by USB cable or WiFi network ?
If you want to use the cable you need to enable development mode and use the 169.x.x.x like ip.
Otherwise you need to use the WiFi IP which is in general 192.x.x.x but it depends on the network you are connecting on.

Thank you. Awesome post. BTW, you can add something like this to your /etc/fstab (edit it to suit your serup)
//IP_oR_Name/media /mnt/something cifs noauto,credentials=/home/your_username/.smbpasswd 0 0
Now, edit /home/your_username/.smbpasswd and make sure it has the following:
You can mount that by entering: sudo mount /mnt/something
