VPN (PPTP) can balckberry support that??

I would like to buy a blackberry but what I want is can connect with VPN via PPTP. I'm not sure blackberry can surf the internet with VPN. If it can by a software or PPTP could you please let me know how can I do that and which model can support that?

I also need to be able to connect with VPN PPTP to my network. It's so simple on the iphone, why can't it be simple on the blackberry.

Yes Balckberry support VPN (PPTP). I have been using this service for almost 2 months. PureVPN a (provider) gives these services in balckberry. I am really happy with the speed too. You can get complete details of this provider from here http://www.bestvpnservice.com/providers/30/purevpn.html

Re: VPN (PPTP) can balckberry support that??

A VPN is a tunneling tool that encrypts data for online security and tunnels it for online privacy. So When choosing your VPN protocol, make sure you begin by identifying your VPN use. To play it safe, make sure you pick a VPN provider that guarantees you access to the PPTP Protocol while connecting with Blackberry. 
Most VPN Providers will limit protocol access depending on the pricing package you purchase. I recommend finding a VPN service provider that gives all-round protocol access regardless of the pricing plan and help you to easily connect with BlackberryHere is the list of best PPTP VPN providers that support blackberry. http://www.vpnranks.com/pptp-vpn/

I have a 9320 and I cannot find the PPTP protocol on the phone. I set up android phone with PPTP but the Blackberry sems to have preset VPN services like Cisco, alcaltel, Lucent but no simple PPTP
