just wanted to share this with anyone with cingular an a modem capable phone. I have a nokia 7250 that acts as a modem thru ir or data cable to a computer. I tried at first to use the phone as a modem with a dialup number, but it drops the connection instantly, i found that you need to have web service for the modem function to work. I had a free trial that they gave me and it worked flawlesly!, when it came time to pay i cancelled my subscription to the net service. I recently found out that there is a pay per kbit usage that they offer for free, and 2cents per kbit usage. I tried this out, hoping that the connection that you use doesnt reflect back to the kbit usage. It doesnt, it only uses your minutes since you are using a dialup number. So free nights/weekends you can be connected in your car to the internet! I tried this out on a trip out of state, free roaming, driving in the middle of nowhere on the internet on the weekend, got my bill didnt charge for a single $, ive been using this alot getting directions and checking email while in traffic.
