Alltel and Sprint mobile broadband

Windows XP
Pantech PX-500

to get on alltel evdo from certain areas, I needed to choose the following settings:

mode: EVDO
roaming: AUTO  unchecking Roam guard
important:  eject and plug card at least once

It seems important to eject/reinsert the card to get it to connect.  It also took a long time (20+ seconds) when opening connection manager after inserting the card for the first time; searching for service, connecting/disconnecting automatically until it connected to an EVDO signal on the alltel network.
