I'm running the Tour simulator (BlackBerry_Simulators_220.127.116.11_9630_Verizon) with the MDS Simulator (BlackBerry_Email_MDS_4.1.4) but I can't connect my browser to the internet at all.
What can be the problem ?
Thanks in advance

Maybe there is no newer version ?
The version I use (4.1.4) comes from:
On the download page (https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/browseSoftwar
BlackBerry® Email and MDS Services Simulator Package v4.1.2 (Bundle 17)

There is a workaround to use a newer version than the official installations files: use the MDS simulator from the JDE or from the Eclipse installation and copy them to any machine that needs it.
The final answer seems to be not related to the MDS version. In the BB simulator, you have to make sure the network used is the "1xev".
Then it works fine.

For other suckers out there, I was never able to get the separately-downloaded MDS and Simulator to work. But if you just install the BlackBerry JDE (the self-sufficient development environment) it comes with both a simulator and a MDS. Start the MDS first, then start the simulator. Magic.

I have been able to get the MDS/ESS simulator running just fine (in conjunction with the BB Smartphone Simulators) and working with Eclipse 3.4.1 (and 3.4.2 which is not currently supported by RIM as of 2009 Sep) as opposed to the BlackBerry JDE.
The only issue I had was that MDS/ESS had to be run as administrator or it would not work for me - it starts up and then the console window and then shortly into the initialization the console window disappears. This was bothersome since I like to develop in Eclipse as my own user not the administrator.
It is also bothersome that each time I run the 9630 Simulator it loses both my SD card setting and my Network setting (the one you need to run the simulator given in the solution above).

I'm using the 18.104.22.168 9630 Simulator, with either the JDE 4.7 MDS, JDE 4.6 MDS, or standalone 4.1.4 MDS.
I have tried setting the simulator's network type to CDMA, as suggested above.
None of this works. No communication between simulator and MDS. I use the same MDS simulator with several 4.7.0 Storm simulators, and they all work.
Why does nothing work on the Tour? MDS, user settings (network type, GPS), playing MP3 files.

Thanks, click-ma! I followed your instructions to change the network type to "1xev" and I can now access the Internet! THANK YOU!!!!

I am using BlackBerry Simulator 9630 , as suggested I am not able to change the network. Can i know the exact procedure to change the network , in other word I would like to know the Steps involved in changing the network.

Once the simulator comes up then click on the BlackBerry button (the button just to the right of the green telephone receiver button), move the cursor until you find the "Managed Connection" icon (it is shaped like an antena with radio signals emitting from both sides), then scroll down to the 'Mobile Network Options' and click the select button. "Data Services" should be on - if not then toggle this setting. "Network Technology" should be set to '1XEV'.
That should do it.
