Latest update: I talked to the verizon tech support team yesterday night, they couldn't do anything, so they transfered me to the blackberry tech support, who told me that they did not provide support for macs running windows xp via vmware. back to square one.
at this time, with the virtualmachine/settings/usb devices - enable 2.0 support and automatically connect usb devices checked, and the vmware tools installed, I do not get the error message "unable to connect to ideal host controler", but also the bbdm4.7 does not pick up the usb device even though virlualmachine/usb shows "disconnect rim device"., indicating that the mac and pc are picking up the device...
not sure where to go from here, so let me know if you guys come up with anything
case closed, problem solved. thanks to all who helped. for those wondering, it was just a matter of going into the device manager on xp and troubleshoot the usb port that wasn't working. Cheers
Glad to hear it
