autorun software on pen let it install drivers etc and the connection manager then pray you have a signal.

the connection software generally is not that good but you might get lucky and changing dash/soft on means you will need to read up on google/forums etc.

Turn UAC off in Vista and Windows 7 whilst you install the drivers

done all that got a good signal but to connect it was the number of the sim and it recognises it as a mobile number not a braodband number

you need a 3g sim then should pick up phone number and set dialing properties up for you with right Sim in. Make sure you got it in the right way many people have installed the Sim into the pen wrong b4.

Saying that though you mentioned it picks up as phone so that aint it

my sim is just a pay and go sim don't think it is 3g that may be why. it doesn't pick it up as a phone i have to add the sim number to connect and it recognises it from that as a phone not broadband sim
