anyone the difference between the Aircard 555D (which is now listed on
VZW's site) and the older 555? Sierra Wireless' site doesn't list the
555D.

The dr offers: The 555 is voice/data. The 555D has had voice disabled, so
it is a data only device.

The rest of the story: Beginning Jan 04, the FCC has required that any
"voice" wireless phone provide aGPS capability. Sierra's 555 has both
voice/data. So those 555's that are sent to Verizon have had the data
component disabled. Hence, the 555D is a data only air card.
