I finally did get this to work, I had a post going here that I would reply to but it's locked.
but just for anyone looking to do this, I deleted my file in order to make it so programs like google maps would work without asking me every two seconds if I wanted it to connect to the internet, however this caused the bluetooth modem to not work, so after restoring that file everything worked fine.

Other than making sure that I put back the file, I just followed the instructions on cingulars site, here they are.

I have tried these directions several times. I have added the Z; and ti seems every other known letter it seems, all to no avail. I tried the SIMM card in my V3r which worked just before I purchased the V3xx and noe it doesn't work. It appears it is with Cingular's 3G SIMM system.
Does anyone have a definitive way to accomplish this or is there a better phone to access the 3G with? I had no problems with the old SIMM and was told how much better this would be so I switched.
Again I have a HX2755 the Bluetooth version is "Bluetooth for Windows CE, BT-PPC Version 1.5.0 Build 2902.
I have downloaded the lateset updated from HP using Pocket PC 2003

When you changed from your old SIM card, did it change numbers or account? If the same phone worked before and it doesn't work now, and the only thing changed was the SIM card, then I'd stop looking at init strings, reset, etc and confirm with Cingular that the account for the new SIM card allows data usage.

Yes the number stayed the same. The 2 differences are teh SIMM and the phone. I can access data via the phone and by tethering to a computer, just not by BT. There was 1 moment when it went through and I received my email and then broke connection and was never able to restore again. I really am at a loss.
HP and Motorola both do not have any support and try to redirect it back to Cingular.
