Do you have a cell phone right now? If so, which provider do you use?
Once you answer this, I can help you a little bit more.
I need Voice and Internet service on two different phones so I can just leave one phone in my car hard wired(internet).
Voice Plan - placing calls...
Whats the best company for SOCAL for the above in unlimted data?
I have been searching but maybe we need to start a poll on this to see what you are all using
let me know
Best thing to do would be to add a line/make your self a family plan (either $9.99/14.99/19.99 extra/month) depending on which plan you have. And then add the Media Net Unlimited for $19.99/month. U can find out how to get it to connect on howardforums.com, or just PM me when you get the new phone, and I'll help you out.Originally Posted by mbkowns
Remember, this is not going to be broadband speeds. I've gotten 56k-128K connections. It's basically like dial up maybe a little bit faster.

How long ago did you get ur plan? Which plan do you have?
59 a month for a family plan with two phones + 20 for media net
40 a month for a single plan + 20 for media net
I want an unlimited data only plan for round 20 bucks becuase the second phone is going to be mounted in the seat and I will never be using the voice on it but I will be paying 20 dollars more for a family plan for it + media net.
Also you say the speeds were up to 128kbps, What about EDGE and later EDVO.
Edge is $80/month. EVDO is for Verizon/Sprint. What your thinking of I think is called GAIT.Originally Posted by mbkowns
If you got a completely new plan with cingular, it would be
$59.99 2 lines 500Min, free mtm, free n/w, + $20 for net. = $70/month.
If you want edge, $40/month, 450min, free m2m, 5000n/w (83hrs) + $80 = $120
Cingular has nation's largest Edge network. http://onlinestorez.cingular.com/cel...3&mapt=dataMap
I don't know how much GAIT will cost.
EVDO on Verizon is also $80/month ~400k-2mbps, I don't know if Sprint has their EVDO service rolling yet.
T-mobile offers about the same as Cingular. although if you want, u can have internet only for $30/month.
$40/month + $30/month = $70/month. but then you have to get a gprs pcmcia card http://www.t-mobile.com/products/ima...272&class=data for $99. So it ends up being a little bit more expensive. T-mobile has edge also, but no info on their site.
Browsing speeds, not download, and it depends on your phone.Originally Posted by mbkowns
thanks for the great info!
T-Mobile has a great deal right now 1000 minutes free nights and weekends for 40 a month!
I thought the bad thing with T-mobile was there internet is only GPRS and not EDGE
GPRS being the 128kps range
too bad t mobile's phones and coverage areas suck... i have a couple friends with t mobile. they either never get signal or their phones dont ring when i call them. t mobile sucks. i could care less if catherine zeta jones is peddling it.
Yeah, in the west coast they use Cingulars OLD crappy network. They bought their antennas off of them. ANd the funny thing is (I don't know if that's true still), is that when they roam over to Cingular's new network, T-mobile charges users Digital Roaming.Originally Posted by craniumdesigns
I had a friend that had a national plan, and was getting charged 35 cents/min for making calls from his work, 15min away.
