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.

HP-UX 11.23 to 11.31 update

some of my notes:
ioscan option -m (mapping)
-m hwpath -H $hw_path  -- shows hardware paths
-m lun  -H $hw_path   -- show agile addressing
-m dsf $device_file  -- maps legacy to agile

upgrading from v2 to v3 will leave legacy references in lvmtab, etc.. to fix:
vgscan -N  or  vgdsf
NOT necessary, but optional:
rmsf -L  insf -L   --  removes or installs legacy device files from box

iofind command scans ascii files and converts legacy to agile addresses
