it's really exactly the same as the directions provided in the first post of this thread except for the thing i mentioned above.
but since i'm bored @ work
click the start button and go to connect to
then click set up a connection or network
select connect to internet
click setup connection anyway (that's what it says on mine since i'm already connected to a network)
select dial up
choose standard modem
put *99# in the dial up phone number box and leave everything else the way it is
click connect eventhough it won't work then let it do its thing and close the box
go to control panel-> phone and modem options
go to modems tab and select standard modem and hit properties
in the general tab you'll see a change settings box, click it
and in the advanced tab put in your carriers string
mine was +cgdcont=1,"IP","wap.cingular"
ok all the way out of that and open desktop manager and wait until phone says it's connected
now go to connect to from the start menu and connect to the connection you setup earlier
that's what worked for me, anything beyond that i really have no idea
