For me, the Option GlobeTrotter GPRS PC card is still one of the finest GPRS terminals (see my review here) available.

It's still one of the fastest GPRS terminals as well as it works great with Notebooks and Pocket PCs. However, as always, there is still room for improvements.

I don't know for how long the new Pocket PC PIN driver for the Option card is already available, but there is a new one you might want to download if you are using it often with your Pocket PC.

This PIN driver works even better than the previous version and pops-up every time you switch on your device. It registers the card (normally) within seconds to the GSM and GPRS network.

But also Pocket Presence released a new and free add-on for Running Voice GSM 2.x. Frequency setting for the Option GlobeTrotter Card is an add-on application to be used together with the GlobTrotter card, which enables you to switch between the 900/1800 MHz or 900/1900 MHz frequency mode of the GlobeTrotter card. This means you don't need the AT command (see my tip in the Forum) anymore.

Last but not least I want to recommend the Running Voice GSM Car Skin if you are using your Pocket PC/GlobeTrotter combination for voice calls also.

The Car Skin is equipped with finger-sized buttons and bulky text when displaying contacts and speed dials.

The Running Voice GSM Car Skin is available from PocketGear for US$4.99.

I would like to thank you for this information and your review was great! I would like to ask you:

1. Dose it have auto-awaking feature when the call is received, to conserve battery life (same feature in iPAQ Wireless Pack)? I know there is a screen toggle option in RVGSM, but when the screen is switched OFF, doesn’t switch ON again to receive a call? If it does, how long does it take?

2. GPRS connection is it always ON? Even when the screen is OFF?

3. Is it compatible with h5450 + PC sleeve w/ removable battery? If yes, how is the battery behavior? Will it supply to iPAQ and the card or the card only, or they are independent?

4. When you receive a call or SMS, will the contact name be displayed?
