I know there are speed concerns with bluetooth, but I would be willing to give up some speed if the connection is easy enough (and if I really needed more speed I could keep a usb cable around, or find a open WiFi spot, which is pretty easy in austin). What kind of restrictions are there with how you have it set up?
    It works fine... decent speeds

    Provinding it's big enough for the two of us, I'm in your boat COMPLETELY. I could've almost copy and pasted what you wrote and signed it

    I definitely want to have an easy connection w/out having to plug my phone in everytime. Some people have been talking about using two phones, one stays in your car all the time and the sim card gets cloned or something. ANyone know more about this?
    Its not the cards you're dealt, its how you play the hand!

    we use tmobile at work. your right it is really slow. I am guessing like 14k or something. Our T-Mobile rep told us tha they are working on a high speed network like AT&T's Edge. and I think it is like 600K or so. That would be nice because my comp pays for me to have an unlimted data plan.

    I am not sure about the sim card cloning..

    im pretty sure thats illegal.. and will probably get you into more trouble than using someones broadband internet. copying a sim card that is.. though i do not know how this would exactly work, as each sim has a unique number and this number is registered with your phone service. plus i dont know how something like that would react say if you were to receive a call or something.

    I use 802.11G in my car. It allows me a quick connection to my home server computer, plus about from the amount of wireless networks i see, nearly half are unprotected and have internet. Usually my 8 minute drive to work picks up about 58 wireless networks through town, and driving through most any middle class residential area, will yield good results for getting open wireless connections with internet. And besides, I dont need internet while i'm driving. If i'm wanting to look something up, I'll launce netstumbler, drive a few blocks and park my car and surf the web. Its as easy as that.

    I'm really waiting for the day that we will be seeing more and more wireless ISPs. "100MB/sec at 65MPH. Thats what i'm talkin about."
