Most likely the same thing that Cingular said:

	1) "well, we don't support that service anymore"
	2) "we don't do that, we've never done that"
	3) "huh?"
	4) "you don't need a modem with your GSM phone, it has one built in"
	5) "I've never heard of that, what is it?"

Nobody in "customer service" knows what TAP/IXO paging is, and you know
what?  As long as they have all of the drug-dealers and soccer-moms buying
service from them without the need for TAP/IXO, they don't CARE.

Now, for an answer, search thru an archive of nanog and find the excel <gah!>
spreadsheet that I pointed people to about 2 months ago.  It had several 
hundred TAP/IXO modem numbers...
