    I got a DKU-5 data cable for my Nokia 6200 and installed the software on
    my laptop, then downloaded PC-Suite from Nokia and installed that. It
    shows up as "Port 1 ... COM11". I tried AOL, which didn't see the modem,
    and which only offers Com1-9 under set-it-up-yourself mode. So no luck.
    Then the next time I turned the machine on, it said "new hardware
    detected" and reinstalled everything, this time using COM12. So what do I
    need to a) get a usable mobile modem, and b) get it installed once and for
    all? The phone shows a "G" among the icons at the top, which I understand
    to mean EDGE, which I understand to be substantially faster than the 9600
    baud my T720 runs. Correct?

    Go to cingular, and purchase their data kit and smith micro software.

    then contact cingular and have you phone provisioned for that kind of usage.
    I made the same mistake.

    Did you install the software driver for the phone?

    You should be able to connect without buying anything else from Cingular.
    If you do contact Cingular, they will try and tell you need a "Data Connect"
    plan ($$$), which is not true.

    Good Luck.

    I have Smith Micro software from the Nokia 6200's predecessor, a
    Motorola T720. So should I run just the DKU-5 install (since it's
    physically a different cable does it need different software?) but then
    use the Smith Micro thing for modem software? The T720 was, and the line
    presumably still is, on the $0/month, pay for usage plan.

    I've installed everything twice, with an intermediate run of the
    "register cleaner", though I used the CDROM that came with the data cable
    instead of the download from that site. The dates on the CDROM files seem
    newer in some cases than those in the dku5.exe zip file. I manually
    changed the install's selection of COM13 to COM2. (The Device Manager
    showed COM2 unassigned, then a slew of assignments up through COM12, so it
    autoselected COM13. I have no idea where all those COM port "assignments"
    came from.) I recall at a later point during the install "detect" that
    correctly found the phone on com2. PC Suite Connection Manager sees the
    phone (serial). Per a previous thread here, I added "wap.cingular" as the
    GPRS access point, though I didn't see anyplace for the user/password that
    message mentioned.

    Yes, but you'll never be able to take advantage of the built-in network
    compression if you don't use the Cingular client software....
