When I went to Carrier Profile 2 (at&t) instead of CP 0, my connect time decreased by about 1 minute. Not a huge improvement. I’m hoping my long connect time is due to poor cell signal or bad configuration – and not a modem problem. I’m going to try to travel to a better area this weekend and see if I get connected faster. I’m also interested in trying an AT&T SIM card to see if that improves things. I think I can get one to test for a short time.
