I have searched high & low for a resolution to this, but keep coming up empty.
I have successfully figured out the tethering with the carrier (AT&T) internet connection using *99#.
But I want to be able to use the phone as a standard analog modem so that I can dialup to a real 10-digit number.
This is important because some of our customers still use route-finders which use a telephone line, and they are not using VPN's.
I have tried creating a basic connection to utilize the Standard Modem created when the Blackberry is installed; it dials, and you can hear the modem tones through the phone, but it never even gets to the user/password portion of the connection, and eventually just times out.
This will be my last stop, as I have posted on blackberryforums.com and blackberry.pinstack.com about this. I am losing hope in this. I just don't know how so many other phones out there are capable of this, and the Pearl isn't!

Check with the carrier if they support dialup data transmissions on their GSM network, if so ask what is the baud rate supported and set this in the modem properties.
Also, a good way to test this would be to test the same SIM in a dialup configuration with a standard GSM phone that supports GSM dialup eg. Nokia/SonyEricsson/Motorola/etc
