The Wireless Cingular card is working…not with the Cingular connection manager software but with the native Vista GPRS modem connection.  What did the trick was seeing that there was an update in windows update for the modem.  Once I updated that.. stopped trying to use the Cingular and instead just used the native connection from Vista… and… found the username/password info from the Cingular web site


The Cingular sign in info can be found here.. http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?p=220699&sid=5a047e373b051f78c34dafa3386999dc


..now to find an antivirus program that plays nice with Vista…

    Hi Sophos works perfectly under Vista.

    Great info and for a dial-up phone number for Cingular you should use;

    *99#

    As for your antivirus, go get Nod32, Vista compatible.
