NOTE: I have a revised and simplified version on post #127 Android running on US Cellular data service **Solved for most***

Got it working, thanks to eval- for posting the info. I did enter in by cell phone number and not the ESN. After further research it must be the MSID which happens to be the users phone number in some cases. I had problems being able to enter in a ">" so I did something different than what eval- posted. Here are my alternate steps...

1. Downloaded "EStrongs File Explorer" from Market
2. Downloaded "Command Executer" from Market (also tried "Android Terminal Emulator")
3. Opened EStongs File Explorer
4. Pressed the "/" button at top left
5. Selected the "etc" folder
6. Selected the "ppp" folder
7. Press and held on file "pap-secrets" and selected copy
8. Pressed the "Home" button at top left (looks like a house)
9. Pressed the physical Windows key
10. Selected "Operations" button and then selected "Paste"
11. Pressed the "/" button at top left
12. Selected the "etc" folder
13. Selected the "ppp" folder
14. Press and held on file "options.smd1" and selected copy (Not the .smd file)
15. Pressed the "Home" button at top left (looks like a house)
16. Pressed the physical Windows key
17. Selected "Operations" button and then selected "Paste"
Note: I changed a setting to what program to open with, but it was NOT the HTML option.
18. Select file "pap-secrets" and open as "Text"
19. Enter in MSID@uscc.net * MSID (Example: 6414251234@uscc.net * 6414251234) MSID can be found by dialing ##000000 in WindowsMobile
20. Press physical Windows button and select "Save"
21. Select file "options.smd1" and open as "Text"
22. Enter in user MSID@uscc.net (Example: user 6414251234@uscc.net)
23. Press physical Windows button and select "Save"
24. Open up Command Executer
25. Select Super User
26. Enter in "busybox cp /sdcard/pap-secrets /etc/ppp/pap-secrets
27. Select "Execute" button
28. Enter in "busybox cp /sdcard/options.smd1 /etc/ppp/options.smd1
29. Enter in to Air Plane mode then turn off Air Plane mode.

Now it should work.

I went back in to EStrongs File Explorer and opened both files in the /etc/ppp/ folder to verify the changes were there.

An overview of what is going on here is I first made copies of the files and placed them in the "home" location of the SD card. I edited these files with the changes then copied them back.

Hope this helps someone.
