    Do you have a cell phone right now? If so, which provider do you use?

    Cingular
    Verizon
    T-mobile
    Nextel
    Sprint
    Other

    Once you answer this, I can help you a little bit more.

    Peace,

    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.

    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.

    Peace,

    cingular
    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.

    thanks

    Edge is $80/month. EVDO is for Verizon/Sprint. What your thinking of I think is called GAIT.

    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.
    http://www.t-mobile.com/plans/default.asp?tab=internet
    $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.

    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

    thanks

    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.

    I had a friend that had a national plan, and was getting charged 35 cents/min for making calls from his work, 15min away.

    Peace,
