Default BB Modem Worked, Now It Doesn't

I think I was one of the first people to make the BB 7290 work as a modem on Cingular's network. I had it working well, and it connected successfully every time I tried. I had to turn in my laptop when I left a job, and I am having trouble setting up my new laptop to connect. I have followed the instructions in the thread (kind of funny that some of them are my instructions) to disable header compression and to connect to APN isp.cingular and username [email address]. I think I have repeated my earlier configuration exactly. Well, except for one thing. I was using Windows 2000. Now I am using Windows XP. I wonder if the problem could be related to my switch to XP.

Any thoughts?
