          Yep, See Sig below. I've also been experimenting with how many options I can have all loaded and ready to use. So far I am able to use 1) Aircard in PCMCIA slot, 2) Cellphone thru bluetooth, 3) PocketPC Cellphone thru bluetooth, 4) PocketPC Cellphone hardwired to any USB port using activesync, 5) PocketPC cellphone hardwired to any USB port using CDMA USBModem Dialer, 6) USB 802.11G Wifi (this was fun when Yrean let me log on to his car and use his internet connection while I lounged in the park), and 7) mixed autosensing/autoswitching Aircard and 802.11G.
          HARDWARE: Fujitsu Stylistic ST5111w/WiFi and dock, internal Hitachi 500G HD, external 1TB HD, Sierra Wireless Aircard 550, DVD-RW, BoomzBox HD radio, XM Commander, Delorme GPS, Saitek X-52 Pro joystick, BluSoleil Bluetooth, TPMS, FB, Elm327

                  Verizon phone, USB data cable. Not persistent connection, but gets the job done.

                    I should mention, that altho I voted yes, it's extremely minimal usage, and 90% of the time it's from my work's wireless access point. I don't use cellular cause it's too damn expensive in Canada

                      I can use my XV6700 for EVDO connection. I rarely do. If i just want to check email, I do it right on the phone. Usually if I am in the car, I am too busy driving it to need an internet connection.

                          I use the Cellink BTA-6030 USB 2.0 Bluetooth Enhanced Adapter. Works perfectly, never had ANY issues with it.

                            not trying to hijack the thread but how much data usage is everyone having w/ their Sprint pc cards? Anything you don't like about it?
                            Setup:
                            Dynaudio 240GT
                            PPI PC4100, PPI PC2350
                            Zapco DSP6
                            ADS DAC
                            Testing new board (Albatron KI690-AM2)
