Go to www.steyla.com. Scroll all the way done to the bottom. On the right hand side, you'll find a 'Special On Zaurus Computers'. Click that and scroll
to the buttom of this page,

Tell me if you need something else.

That's very cool. I've got a Blackberry with an unlimited data plan through work; I'm wondering if I could just transfer the SIM card from it to one of these devices?

Too bad they're so expensive..

Just wanted to add for those of use that don't have GPRS (read, Sprint), the CF2031 works out of the box on a C3000 with SDG Systems 1xRTT Connection Manager. You can get the software from here.

i used the kernal from www.steyla.com i bought the card from mobilplanet 'ambicom compact flash card' 900/1800/1900 i gto without t-mobiile aciivation since i already had a t-mobile pocketpc (which is still a great unit except the 2003 upgrade made flash unbearable.) i think the SP3i have, and GPRS card have better, not as good as the sP3i thought it's been the reception. i'm getting a blackberry 7290 as well. pretty hyped smile.gif

MRNUTTY hello again,

could you please confirm that your card that works with steyla kernel is the one that can be seen at: http://www.play247.gr/index.php?main_page=...roducts_id=1069
and http://www.ambicom.com.tw/products/GPRS11A-CF.htm ?
(AmbiCom GPRS11A-CF Tri-Band GSM/GPRS CompactFlash Card)

as you probably understood, Im ready to buy one of those babies! in order to use it with my vodafone .gr 3g/gprs data card, the one at: http://www.vodafone.gr/live1/page.jsp?pid=...vars=0000000000
could you please have a look and tell me your opinion on whether it should work or not? from what I understood its something similar to your own case!

thanks in advance..

Is there ANY way to activate one of those cards on Verizon?

We don't hear Sprint too good up here. GSM carriers only at the top of the hill. Maybe.
Verizon loud and clear, but they don't sell a CF card.
