yea there is something wrong with the chat scripts -- i've had that problem too at times.
with certain settups

try wvdial
once you have it installed just run:
touch /etc/wvdial.conf &&
wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf

then go to /etc/wvdial.conf
and enter phone number, login name and password
then just use the command wvdial to connect

it seems to work better
