Intellisense will only work work attaching using SQL Server 2008 (or later) tools to a SQL Server 2008 (or later) instance.  You cannot use intellisense against a 2005 instance.  If you need that, I suggest SQL prompt from Red-Gate.

Cool.  And what permission level do you have in the database which you are trying to get intellisense to work?

Have you checked out the solution here http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqltools/thread/446aebe8-7889-453b-80f3-7dd3579bd19f/

1) Make sure you are connected to SQL Server 2008 Edition.
IntelliSense does not work with the previous versions of SQL Server.

2) IntelliSense should be enabled.
Go to Tools >> Options >> Text Editor >> Transact-SQL >> IntelliSense

3) IntelliSense should be refreshed with the latest changes in database.
a) Press CTRL+SHIFT+R
b) Go to Edit >> IntelliSense >> Refresh Local Cache

4) Go to Tools >> Options >> Text Editor >> Transact-SQL >> General >> IntelliSense
Select Auto List Members and Check Parameter Information.

Any luck yet?

I found this thread in the MSDN Forums:
http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sqltools/thread/dcd5c2cb-fc53-4c28-8b09-bfd9fea6684e

Maybe that will help.
