I was aware of one when using the carrier' internet connection, but not a standard dialup connection.

Well if it was that easy....lol.....then it would be working. I can hear the modem tones on my pearl when trying to dial out, but it times out after 60 seconds. Never gets to the user/password stage of the connection.
And you are wrong, desktop manager does NOT need to be running.
