Default 7290 Modem Connect

Well guys,

While I thought this would save me a headache and provide me with a connection option while I travel, I just blew through three Cingular reps and 2 hours on the phone trying to get this setup....only for them to say, "we don't support it".

I have everything done, configured, setup, both on the pc and the BB (as outlined here and other threads) except for, getting WIX Extended Internet added to my account. I verfied with two reps that the following two are added to my bill:

WIX DATA CONNECT $0.00
WRLSS INTRNT XPRS PAY PER USE $0.00

and further that ISP. Cingular and WAP.CINGULAR are both added to my account and provisioned. However noone can find WIX Extended Internet and I keep getting error 734 PPP link control protocol was terminated.

I disabled header compression....I added two DNS server options that were posted here or somewhere else...

What gives? If someone has added the extended internet service and they have their unit working properly, can you call cingular and get their billing code for that option and post it?
