    You don't, plain and simple.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Sattelite internet? Even if you get either cell internet or sat internet to work, your pings are going to KILL you because the latency in both networks are so outrageously high. With cingular, if you get the PDAnet plan on your phone, you could probably get net that MIGHT be acceptable, since PDA net traffic takes a higher priority over medianet traffic. PDAnet would also allow tethering under the TOS if I remember correctly. However, for the most part, you're screwed a a FPS gamer...

    That's my point. You're not going to get FREE internet.
    There are methods of getting mobile internet access on teh cheap, sure. But cheap is not free.

    If you live the boonies, your only options are dialup ($), satellite ($$) or paying the company to run a line to your house ($$$).

    And gprs over cell will be slower than any 56k dialup. If wanting to keep your phone line open and use the internet is the reason for wanting to switch, get a 2nd phone line. Although if your house isnt setup for it, then it will cost some money for that too.

    fast cell internet is only available in some areas and that is usually highly populated areas, so not the boonies.

    you might wanna check out howardforums.com it's a wealth of information on that site given what kinda phone you have and data plan you'll be able to possibly use the internet but it will be just as slow as dial up i believe unless your using like hspda(spelling)

    well rat's!
    Cingular show's that it will run at 200kbps and my dial up is 110kbps, so the cell would be a little faster would it not?
