Default Can not get WWAN connection to AT&T - 04-29-2009, 11:11 PM

10.5.6 install went flawless, read the WWAN FAQ, copied the script and set up the ports no problem. However I can't get a WWAN connection to save my life.

My SIM is from a working Sierra Wireless 875U and laptop connect plan. OS X has native support for the 875U and it can connect just fine. I pop the SIM in the Mini 9 and nada.

I'm thinking it has to be my dialin settings.

I set the APN (telephone number) to isp.cingular
Using ISP@CINGULARGPRS.COM as the username
CINGULAR1 as the password.

It starts to connect and then fails saying it can't est a PPP connection. I tried lower case, tried ISP.CINGULARGPRS.COM (also tried lower case) and I also tried my SIM's assigned mobile number eg 2125551212@CINGULARGPRS.COM

In the USB settings
