    setting up an internet connection with i415

    It is a heck of alot easier making a auto connect to the internet script than trying to figure out how to interface and automate text messaging to a different phone. And to make all that obsolete, the phone has a GPS built in (nextel based) so you wouldn't need your own, and there is a third party app for transmitting with it. Check it:

    It notes that web costs .20 cents a day, but maintaining live service means crediting about .22 cents a day to the phone anyway, so its like the service is free if you keep the phone alive.
    I have the Boost i415. I ordered a data/power cable, along with an external antenna. Do you know how to set up the phone and computer to access the internet? Right now, I'm just primarily interested in getting radar downloads from Wxtap.com or Wunderground.com. ANY help in step-by-step setting up would be really great!....

    Not only is threadjacking rude, it's also against the rules.
    Not to mention that the thread was in the GPS section and your post had absolutely nothing to do w/ GPS at all.

    Moved to Wireless Comm.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
