    Boost Vs. Cingular - Internet Only

    I can't decide what to do. I already have cingular but the GPRS internet is only 28.8K and is 20/month for unlimited. I used to have a Boost phone but threw it out. I am redoing the carpc this weekend and I am thinking about hiding a boost phone in the dash for internet use only. Is the internet any faster than 28.8K? I know I read that is was 56.6K but is that really accurate? I'm looking to buy the phone and service tonight or tomorrow since I am redoing it starting tomorrow night.

    Why don't you get an Edge phone... Tethering will give you like 100-160kbps...for $20/month + 200TXT/MMS/Video Msgs

    I have one. Yesterday I was connected at 200Kbps but today I only connected at 28.8kbps so that's why I'm thinking about boost. I'd be happy with 56.6K for the 10/month with boost. Edge isn't that great at least here in Columbus.

    I found your problem.... get away from Motorola....

    It's all about Nokia and Samsung!!!

    You should be getting excellent everything with CIngular. You live in a fully 3G area. So you could even get yourself a 3G phone and get close to megabit speeds for $20/month.
