    I am trying to use my Nokia 6820 which has a built in modem along with a
    data cable to get on the internet with my laptop when I am away from home &
    any wifi locations. So far I am not having much luck. I have seen numerous
    different settings when I searched under Google. Can anyone advise me what
    the current settings should be for the access point name, username &
    password (if needed). I used to be an ATT Wireless customer if that makes
    any difference.

    I am really getting frustrated but I don't want to go out and get a wireless
    pc card & add another account if I can just use my cell phone. Would a
    wireless pc card be any faster than my cell phone (if I can ever get it to
    work)? Is it worth buying & adding another account?

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Have you verified with Cingular that your phone number is set up for a
    data plan? They have some plans that use GPRS/EDGE service, and other
    plans that use CSD service.

    I have a data package and use Motorola Mobile PhoneTools (motorola
    v551 phone). Software does all the setup once it detects the phone is
    connected. All google searching I have done and millions of people
    are having trouble using phone unless they have gprs instead of CSD.

    Right now I have a data plan for wireless internet (mmode when it was ATT)
    on my phone. If I can ever get this up & running I am just going to upgrade
    to the unlimited plan.

    That brings me to another question, if I went the pc card route, how many mb
    per month would be needed to say check my email & do some surfing on my
    lunch hour every day?

    Thanks,
    Rich
