    Although you shd have resolved the issue, just sharing some piece of information about connecting the modem to nokia 6070.

    I, first tried using the DKU-5 USB data cable. It didn't work for me (immediately after connecting to 6070, it gave me "Data Enhancement not supported").

    Then I tried with a local CA-42 adapter cable, which I purchased for just Rs.330/-. When i connected to 6070, it did gave me the same error - "Data Enhancement not supported". But, after several different tries (The CD supplied along with the local CA-42 cable, gave me a COM2 port and I had to manually select it - the COM1 port doesn't work) I was able to sync the data between 6070 and my pc. But, it was no guarantee, that every time it worked. I had to connect, re-connect again and again and at some particular point, it got connected and was highly unstable.

    Also, I was not able to connect to the internet. It gave me a "No Modem installed" message. I tried various combinations (installing/uninstalling pc suite, changing drivers etc), but at times the results were un-predictable, that some time, it re-booted the pc with out any notice.

    Finally, I decided to go for a original nokia CA-42 (Driver for Connectivity Adapter Cable CA-42). What a beauty! It is just a cake walk. I had nothing to do, except to follow the guidelines.

    So wht makes the difference? The CD that comes along with the CA-42 cable, provides the "connectivity adapter driver". Once you have installed that, then you can use pc suite (infact - One touch Access, lauchable from pc suite) to detect the modem - Nokia CA-42 GSM USB Modem - in 6070 and you can start surfing. pc suite is definitely needed and can be downloaded from http://www.nokia.com.sg/nokia/0,,88451,00.html. Also, don't forget to select your network operator correctly from the One touch Access -> Settings.

    There is also a link to download the Nokia CA-42 cable driver - http://www.nokia.com.sg/nokia/0,,95897,00.html - but, i have not tried it.

    Also note, when you use the original nokia CA-42 cable, you can see status messages as tool tip on the tray icon pc suite (such as, "Nokia CA42 GSM USB Modem (OTA)is now Connected Speed:115.2 Kbps").

    Also, I noticed, that the original CA-42 cable has only 6 pins (2 pins are taller than the other 4) from the left side and the remaining part were empty, whereas the local CA-42 had more pins and stretched full.

    So, the moral of the story - Always use Nokia originals for a trouble free usage!

    Last but not the least, I bought the nokia CA-42 cable from nokia priority show room and it costs Rs.1740/-, five times higher than the local cable!!
