    Wireless Internet Service... Nextel?

    I've been searching around for awhile during my planning for my carputer. I want to have wireless internet access available to me... not that I see a need for big, fast downloads... maybe just access to the CDDB when I decide to "borrow" a CD and want to rip it with all track information... you know, simple things like that. Anyway, I found the link below in another thread talking about Nextel's Broadband service that is being tested or something. If I could somehow make internet connection through my Nextel phone just using minutes, I'd be VERY happy... I don't really care about the lightening speed... I have an UNLIMITED rate plan and so MINUTES aren't a concern.

    Sooooo... how can I connect with my nextel phone WITHOUT paying for Packetstream Gold or other plans. Now, IF I could get broadband type speeds in my car and ALSO move whatever modem (PCMCIA card or something) to my home PC, I would happily pay the extra money for that type of service... ok... I'll keep looking but if you have input... well... PLEASE lemme know.

    TTYL!

    Am I the only one who hates to see pics in the signiture.

    I don't know how you managed it but I thought images in signatures wasn't aloud. And personly they just clutter things up

    please take the image out of your signature.. they give me headaches.. there is nothing worse then scrolling through a thread that is all images on people's sigs.

    Thanks

    EDIT: Opps.. i don't think that was a image in his signature.. my bad

    Hey,

    A good place to look would be
    CellPhoneHacks

    I found a lot of good stuff there.

    Hope it helps,

    First off... whooops... sorry guys... bad habit from some of the boards I visit on a regular basis... I'll try to refrain from hitting my hotkeys... but please be patient... it is a HUGE habit... it actually takes a LOT of thought to NOT hit Alt+S at the end of a post. Please forgive me.

    As for the last post... I'll go check out the link. Thanks for the suggestion. Thanks.

    Coach!
