I wouldnt be to bothered about a dialer with BB,as they use different connections,you may have it on there but i doubt its working.

It can only dial out if your old dial up modem is connected. You should perhaps check with BT Billing if it has been and ask if there are any extraordinary telephone calls to premium numbers.

We can help you get rid of it anyway - keep posting.
