Barry software for using Blackberry as a modem


Hello, I've been using my Blackberry curve model 8320 as a modem in Linux with the barry software. Some times it works. Other times it causes my Blackberry phone to do strange things such as turn the display black and blink a red light at the top and show an hourglass rotating for a while. Other times, it refuses to connect and gives tons of errors such as these.

): Error in usb_bulk_read
Exception in IpModem:ataReadThread: (-19, error submitting URB: No such device): Error in usb_bulk_read

select(): Interrupted system call

Whats the correct way of turning off the script? I tried running sudo poff in another console. I was going to reset the connection because I couldnt load webpages, but then it wouldnt redial giving me this message.
