Have a new HP Pavilion dv9000.  Also have a Cingular Sierra card for a PCMCIA slot, which this computer does NOT have.  I'm looking now to get a Cingular BlackJack smart phone.  Can I connect to the HP via cable or even bluetooth?  I travel to abroad and need a GMS capable device, and a provider with international connections.  Also would love to find a 'cheaper' way of getting data when travelling abroad ... at 2 cents a kilobit it ramps up quite quickly with roaming charges.

According to this:

The phone has Bluetooth 2.0
A different option would be to use your existing cingular card with something like this:

They run around $200.
