Also, I believe Sprint is just a dialup connection. If all you want to do is connect to the network you can create a batch file with the rasdial command and then include the batch file as an embedded program accessed through launch. When you launch the batch file it will then just connect to the Internet without ever loading the connection manager. I used to do that before I had an aircard and was connecting through my cell phone. It worked very well. There's no reason the same thing can't be done with the Sprint aircard.
