    Unlimited 3g for 40 dollars

    Hey guys, I just wanted to show you all this new service that I haven't seen anyone mention yet on this forum. Take it for what you will. There is apparently 'no contract'.

    That looks interesting. It costs about the same as it would cost for me to add a datacard to my current phone plan, but it would be great for people with pay-as-you-go phones.

    I think Hijack has had that service in his signature for a while now.

    Not the greatest coverage though. Still waiting on these internet providers to get down tot the $20 mark. For now I tether a Boost phone. Slow, but gets the job done.

    if there was a $20 a month option to permanently tie my carpc into the 3g internet, i would do it. $40 is too much for a little convenience though, my tethered phone works good enough. good for those who arent grandfathered into a plan though, because if you can run skype on it there isnt much reason to have actual talk minutes..

    come to think of it, sprint does offer me to add a phone for $10 a month to share minutes, i might just go that route if they still do that...

    I pay unlimited 3G on AT&T for $15.00 (media net unlimited). You can do that (or $30 for unlimited data & Messaging) as long you don't have a "pda" phone.

    RipplingHurst. I'm using AT&Ts Media Net Unlimited with my phone as well. I'm looking into adding a second line for my carPC as a dedicated line. The cheapest they have offered me for the second line is $60 a month for 5Gb max... They won't offer the Media Net Unlimited to use on a 3G wireless usb dongle.

    I may end up trying the Data Jack. I'm trying to find a contact phone number or email address I can call them on to ask about more-detailed coverage areas.

    I had a Sony Erricson Att&T and was able to tether it. Dont tell them your tethering because they willtell you that you need a special data plan. You dont though.
    I tethered my phone that had unlimited media net and it worked great. No extra billing..
