    you hot-spot guys just don't get it. there is a distinct advantage to having cell phone based internet access. If you don't understand what the advantage is ... just trust the guys who say it's handy.

    vcbb ... do you know if sprint has any bluetooth enabled phones? I want one but haven't been able to get any goof info from their site, and I'm trying to avoid calling or going into a store to ask. I hate salespeople.

    Hay vcbb5, I have verizon and been doing exactly what you are asking about for some time. I'm using the LG 4400 to my carputer to connect to the internet. You have two choices to connect. With your current voice plan you can use there QNC service AKA quick to net to connect. The down fall with this is that your connection would be 14.8k but the good thing is that you don't have to pay extra for connect to the internet. Connecting at 14.8 is not as bad as it sounds. I've been using it with a software called venturi and it speeds it up to about 56k. The other rout is to subscribe to there express network which they say would give you speeds of 40-60k with bursting speeds of 140k. Venturi does not work to well with the express network. They have also just released a new wireless DSL service that they said would give you between 300-500k connection but it is only availible right now in San Deigo and Washington DC. This would be the S$#T when it becomes nation wide. Can somebody say good buy hotspots and wardriving!

    Your cell phone service must have data plan. You can either access the internet through your phone's web access or dial up ISP. You need to have some way of connecting the phone to the computer, USB data cable, IR, or bluetoooth.

    amrit I dont think that's gonna help him much. He's in Israel and has a GSM phone. You're in USA and with a CDMA phone.
