    There's nothing better to replace them with. Perhaps those folks are
    switching from GSM to CDMA.

    Cingular lately has offered the Sierra Wireless 775 Air Card for EDGE
    service. It is a class 12 device, whereas the GC83 is a class 10
    device. Class 12 has faster data rates than class 10. Sierra Wireless
    also has a very good reputation. The Sierra card costs $50 more than
    the Sony Ericsson card for new accounts at Cingular.

    Sounds to me like someone that got caught flat-footed and is trying to
    cover up their tracks.

    Then he wrote:

    Well, I don't have any hard evidence on whether Sony Ericsson's
    reputation is as good or better than Sierra Wireless's. But I can say
    that as a user of the GC83 card for the last 5 months, I would not call
    it 'excellent'. I don't know if the problem is the card, the software,
    the carrier, or a combination of all three. I use the card in
    multiple cities and states. I frequently have to shutdown and restart
    the software to regain my connection. Sometimes I can disconnect then
    reconnect but more often I have to close the connection application,
    restart it, then wait for it to find the network, then reconnect. This
    procedure often takes 1-2 minutes.

    Often times I can be browsing in a web forum, going from page to page
    OK, then when I want to go to a different website, it can't be found.
    I can try and try and try with no avail. Other times after several
    tries it will finally find the web site. I have found that sometimes I
    can go to www.google.com and it will find that site, then I can go to
    the site I really want to go to. Strange. Some kind of DNS issue I'm
    sure.

    Generally speaking, I've found in rural areas the card works quite
    well, but in metropolitan areas there can be big problems. I can get a
    4 or 5 bar signal, get connected, and still can't do any browsing.
    Other times I can get a 4 or 5 bar signal, and I cannot even connect.
    Yet there have been times (in rural areas primarily) that I have had a
    usable connection even with 1 bar.

    All in all, I can say that I like it better than my Nextel service that
    I used to have - mainly because the downloads are so much faster. When
    I have a good connection, I have no complaints about the card, but
    other times I find it's use very frustrating. I do think there are
    still a lot of kinks in the system and in the software, and very much
    room for improvement. Speed is valuable, but so is a reliable
    connection valuable. Whether the Sierra card would actually work any
    better, I can't say.

    P.S. As I am trying to send this message, I have a 4-5 bar signal, but
    I haven't been able to connect after several attempts. I know that
    EVENTUALLY I will get a connection and get this message posted.

    Fair enough -- what I should have said was, "'There's nothing better to
    replace them with' as far as downlink speeds are concerned, which is what most
    users care about."

    GPRS/EGPRS(EDGE) slot configurations:

    Class 10- Configurable between
    One Up, Four Down
    Or Two Up, Three Down

    Class 12- Configurable between
    One Up, Four Down
    Or Two Up, Three Down
    Or Three Up, Two Down
    Or Four Up, One Down

    Thus:
    Class 12 is no faster than Class 10 for DOWNlink.
    Class 12 can be made up to twice as fast as Class 10 for UPlink,
    but only at the expense of downlink speed.

    Class 12 thus matters if you are sending a large file, but has no benefit for
    normal surfing and downloading.

    As far as reputation is concerned, I think Sony Ericsson has at least as good
    reputation as Sierra, if not better -- the GC8x-series is excellent.

    I have a GC82. If I were buying a new EDGE card, I might go for Class 12 over
    Class 10, but the increased uplink speed isn't enough for me to upgrade from
    my GC82.

    What I have to say in rebuttal to your diatribe is that I find my
    problems are very much location based. Also, time of day plays an
    important factor. Late at night when most people are in bed, is when I
    have the fewest problems. During working hours is the worst.

    Regarding rural vs metropolitan, it makes very much sense for 2
    reasons. First of all there is a lot more traffic on the cellular
    system. Second of all, there are phasing issues as the signal bounces
    off buildings and such. You ever try to watch broadcast TV with an
    antenna in a big city? You get a lot clearer picture a few miles out
    of town (no ghosting). It is the same issue here.

    I could say the same thing about you. ;) Regardless, you are of course free
    to think whatever you want.

    My GC82, with the latest firmware, managed by the latest Sony Ericsson
    Wireless Manager software on Windows XP Pro SP2 and an IBM ThinkPad T30, has
    been rock solid on Cingular. The only problems were due to occasional
    Cingular service issues.

    Perhaps, although it could easily be something else -- there's no way to know
    for sure either way without actually checking (e.g., with a tool comparable to
    'nslookup').

    That doesn't make much sense.

    Why not? Have you done standard troubleshooting?

    As indicated by what specifically?

    Sure -- it's a darn good device.

    Are you more interested in dissing the GC83 and/or Cingular, or in fixing your
    problem? ;)

    The Sony Ericsson Wireless Manager can be easily configured to automatically
    connect you to the network at startup, and then to maintain that connection
    for as long as you want. If it fails to connect to the network (which is rare
    in my experience), there's usually enough feedback to know what went wrong.
    If it connects, and you still can't access the Internet, then something is
    wrong other than the GC83. Additional troubleshooting can usually pinpoint
    the problem.

    Diatribe? Hardly. I'm leaving that territory to you. :)

    Phase of the moon? Air temperature? Type of background music? Where will it
    end?! :)

    What matters is load, not traffic.

    You're thinking of "multipath," but that's not really a factor when you have a
    strong signal.

    >See links below for more information:
    >[SNIP]

    Thanks, but I'm familiar with the technical issues, as reflected in the
    information and help I tried to give you. But it seems that you'd rather
    fight than fix (to paraphrase the old cig commercial).

    Hmmm. Why switch when these GC83 cards are:

    John Navas wrote:
    > the GC8x-series is excellent.

    The cards may be fine or the network might be fine, but the end result
    often leaves much to be desired.

    I've described real world conditions that I experience. I use my GC83
    card for hours a day. I am glad that I can use something like this to
    access the internet. And I understand that this is a type of 'Bleeding
    Edge Technology'. As such, I don't expect perfection. Rolling out the
    network takes time, and I am hoping that conditions improve, to where I
    have a reliable connection in more locations.

    Perhaps a different card would work more reliably, or maybe nothing can
    be done until Cingular's network upgrade has been completed in the
    different locations that I use the service. Perhaps some areas will
    never work well due to factors beyond what Cingular and the EDGE
    technology can accomplish.

    The Sony Ericsson GC83 card is not the 'Pie-In-The_Sky' solution that
    you seem to imply.

    John Navas wrote:
    > Phase of the moon? Air temperature? Type of background music? Where

    Yeah, right.

    My other beefs with the 'Cingular Connection Manager' software, I know
    could be improved in a short time if Cingular was interested.
    (1) No reset for when the card hangs due to loss of signal. The Sony
    Ericsson Wireless Manager has this.
    (2) When the signal is lost, it can take up to a minute before the
    application to close when you click on the X in the upper right hand
    corner.
    (3) When you ask it to search for networks manually, after it finds the
    network, you pick one, then it has to search for that network again.
    Why can't it remember the info it just found?
    (4) The image compression software included is incompatible with Norton
    Antivirus 2004 and 2005. You can't download incoming e-mail from a pop
    server unless you disable 'Scan incoming email' in Norton AV, or
    uninstall the image compression software.
    (5) Even though I told the Cingular Connection Manager software not to
    have anything to do with my 802.1 WiFi adapter, if I have the adapter
    disabled, a pop-up balloon with a sound pops-up every minute, annoying
    me.
    (6) The latest version of Cingular Connection Manager seems to have
    crippled the option to manually choose the carrier (when this is
    necessary). The button is still there, but it doesn't work.
    --------
    Other than that, the software is OK.

    You do provide a service on this forum for many users, and that's fine
    by me. But acting like everything is the end users problem, and not
    Cingular's, leaves me suspect. By chance are you, or your wife, or
    your relative employed by Cingular? If not, do you or they receive any
    compensation from Cingular directly, indirectly or through the
    'services' you provide as a second or third party?

    BTW: I wasn't posting on this thread to get help, I was posting to
    correct misconceptions.
  9. Archived from groups: alt.cellular.cingular (More info?)

    FYI : I've been using Sony Ericsson's Wireless Manager for months, and
    I got the tip from another user. Actually I have both Cingular
    Connection Manager and Sony Ericsson's Wireless Manager both installed,
    and I switch back and forth, depending upon the conditions where I am
    at. Both programs have different pros and cons.

    I don't cut Cingular as much slack as I probably would under normal
    circumstances, but they did get on my bad side from the get go. See my
    bitch list below:

    (1) The phone salesmen told me conflicting information regarding Media
    Net Unlimited and Laptop Connect when I was looking to buy service. I
    wanted to know if I purchased a data capable phone and Media Net
    Unlimited (about $25/mo), could I tether that phone to my laptop and
    get unlimited internet service. I was told that was only available
    with the Laptop Connect plan (about $80/mo). So I purchased a phone
    and the GC83 card. From reading this forum however, it appears I could
    be saving $55/mo by tethering my phone to my laptop with Media Net
    Unlimited. Problem is, I have a 2-year contract.
    (2) I told the phone saleman I wanted the phone and PC card sent to my
    work address in another state. They ended up shipping the PC Card to
    my home, and they got the address wrong for shipping to my work
    address. I told the salesman Richmond Terrace, but he only wrote down
    Richmond. It turns out there is a Richmond Avenue in the same area,
    and FEDEX couldn't find the location on Richmond Avenue, because it
    didn't exist. Fortunately I was able to get FEDEX (through Cingular)
    to redirect the packages, but they were delayed.
    (3) When I received the GC83 card, there was no software included, and
    the only internet connection I had available was with my Nextel cell
    phone. I tryed for several days to download the 25MB file, but I
    couldn't maintain a connection long enough. Finally I had someone burn
    it onto a CD for me and deliver it to my work address.
    (4) So, about a week later I have the software, but the card wouldn't
    work. It turns out the card was defective. So to get a new card I had
    to let Cingular charge $249.99 to my credit card. They said I would be
    refunded the money in 1-2 billing cycles after I received the card.
    (5) Well they sent the card to my work address as requested, but the
    return shipping label was sent to my house resulting in about a 2-week
    delay for me to return the card.
    (6) I finally received the money back for the credit card charge, 3-1/2
    months after my card was charged. Most other vendors give their
    customers a time window to return a defective item after the new one
    has been shipped out, before charging the customer for the item.
    Instead Cingular got to make money off of the float for 3-1/2 months
    for a defective card that they sent me.
    (7) All of the above entailed over 10 hours on the phone with Cingular
    trying to get the various issues resolved. I would spend an hour being
    redirected around before finally getting someone who could answer or
    solve my problem. Often they redirected me to the same number that I
    had just called some minutes before. Other times they gave me an
    out-of-service number (from a phone company? go figure).
    (8) My first bill comes, with no overages in any catagory, yet it is
    over $500. This included the charge for the GC83 card and a Samsung
    x427m basic no-frills phone. On the bill it says something like: Q.
    Why is my bill so high? A. Not to worry this is just
    because............ No one should be hit with a first bill this high,
    when they don't choose high end hardware.
    (9) Most of the other issues I have already stated earlier in this
    thread.

    So yeah, the above is 'Venting', but you drove me to it. The items in
    the above list happened months ago, but I never laid them out for all
    to see until now. And I don't see how you can or could have helped me
    with the issues I have had or am having. In other words, you don't
    have the horsepower to fix my problems. A Cingular technical engineer
    or manager would be required for that.

    Not in my experience, and that of many others.

    Subscribers may be switching carriers for other reasons, including price (the
    most common reason), coverage in a given area (another common reason),
    employer, plan features, etc.

    Or perhaps you have problems that have nothing to do with the card or
    Cingular. No way to know, since you seem more interested in bitchin' than in
    fixin'. ;)

    >The Sony Ericsson GC83 card is not the 'Pie-In-The_Sky' solution that
    >you seem to imply.

    I never said it was, just that it's very good, and works very well.

    >My other beefs with the 'Cingular Connection Manager' software,

    So stop bitchin' and start fixin', by at least trying Sony Ericsson Wireless
    Manager (as I've suggested a number of times) -- it's free, and works very
    well. Also be sure to install the latest firmware in your card.

    I don't act like that -- I just call 'em as I see 'em. I recently posted a
    report on a serious Cingular EGPRS(EDGE) problem here in Northern California
    -- did you miss that? Or did you somehow see that as blaming end users? ;)

    I have no relationship to Cingular, direct or indirect, other than as a paying
    customer.

    In other words, venting. And what's the point of that? If your problems
    could actually be fixed, then you're actually doing a disservice to others.

    Different areas of the country, different cards/handsets and system
    configurations can all be sources of contention. But the technology and
    it's capabilities usually remain the same. Your conditions must be
    different than John's, or maybe configured improperly. That's no reason
    to doubt what he's trying to tell you. There must be some explanation
    for your problems when his equipment works correctly, consistently and
    yours doesn't. The carrier is the same, the technology is the same and
    the equipment is basically the same. What's left?
    While I know of no affiliation between John and CW, I do know that John
    started this group, wrote the charter, did all of the work (alone) to
    get this forum started for all of our benefits.

    I was not aware of that. That does explain his pro-Cingular stance.

    I plan to leave this thread for now. I really don't have anything left
    to say anyway.

    You'll never know one way or the other.

    Hardly. I also publish webpages on SprintPCS/CDMA, which doesn't make me
    pro-SprintPCS. You just see my evenhanded stance as pro-Cingular because you
    don't like what I have to say.

    Thanks.
