I believe the login name should be "WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM"

I have never owned a "tetherable" device before so this is my first ever attempt at using my 8800 as a modem. Should I be doing something with the 8800 as the mac is trying to make the connection?

I'm on Cingular with the unlimited data plan. I used the "wap.cingular for the APN and the "WAP.CINGULARGPRS.COM" for username and "CINGULAR1" as the password.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
