okI have my pop email all setup, now I would just like to know how to make a better connection than the one I have which is using a dial up dialog from a short cut I made on desktop (using wondows vista) and each time I have to enter *99# and there is no option to save it.

yes it was just a matter of going to control panel > network & sharing center > Manage network connections > right click connection to create shortcut. Also on right click select Properties to make auto options so you don't have to enter phone number etc.

I'm thinking of getting the HSPA M1 - HA plan to use with the WWAN card in my PC, is that the right option? As I understand it I just need a SIM card.

If I was to add the HA option would that mean that I could use my PC as a phone without using VOIP? Is there software that enables that? or am I better just sticking with soft-VOIP?

My concern is that I mainly use HSPA while commuting and the HSPA/GPRS signal varies a lot during the journey (a long one) and at times disappears altogether but regular phone signal is always available.

It would be better to apply for a data only service and use the exetel VOIP service to make calls via your PC using a SIP client such as X-lite.

I am not sure of a program out there which allows you to do this but it would be a lot more expensive compared to using the exetel VOIP service
