"windows Authentication works with a Windows operating system"
That isn't quite correct. "Windows Integrated Authentication" will attempt to use credentials provided by Internet Explorer, if they are unavailable, it will prompt the user to log in with an Active Directory username/password combination. This works on other OS's and browsers just fine.
I am trying to solve the same problem. The limitation seems to be the Blackberry browser, not the authentication type.

I already tried Digest it just keeps asking again and again for logon until it fails when using my Bold.
When set to Basic everything works fine, but I thought the Blackberry could handle Digest Authentication? Are there special settings to get it to work? Thanks,

xandrex, you're almost correct!
The proprietary proxies used by Opera Mini and Blackberry browsers do indeed prevent IWA from working. However, your statement that it will never work on a wireless phone is either incorrect or outdated!
I use IWA for an employee extranet, and users are able to access it using Windows Mobile 6 phones running either the integrated IE browser or Opera 10, over the Sprint 3G network.
There are good technical reasons why BB and Opera Mini use these proxies, but they are a compromise (small & fast vs big & full-featured).
