This is curious. Use nolimits with no problems (apart from their price
increase) although I usually use kppp to connect. However, I use wvdial
sometimes too and I just tried it again and here's my output

--> Initializing modem.

Note that for me pppd is started immediately, while for you
wvdial waits for a prompt. I'm no wvdial expert, because it's always worked
for me (you can only become an expert when things don't work) but I had a
look at my wvdial.conf and I have a line
Stupid Mode = 1
My reading of the wvdial manual leads me to believe that that may be exactly
what you need - suck it and see.
