i signed up for a free 3 month trial, and plugged that info in (i wanted to use the native OS!)
logged out, so i was just sitting at the login screen... and notice the option to "log in as guest"
clicked "log in as guest" and the computer asks for my passport adderss... @hotmail.com, @passport.com, @msn.com, etc...
i thought "hmm, i should go change my MSN password for my *new* account so if the ipaq tries to connect it can't..."
changed it, logged in as guest... everything works fine dialing into my normal ISP.
my next plan is to dump the ROM image, and edit my primary user config to use my hotmail account instead of the msn account. should be possible, if so i'll post better instructions... although, my main long-term goal is to be running an unadultered copy of WinCE instead of this MSN companion crap.
oh yeah, QNX is my second goal, my favorite fuggin' OS in the entire world...
