    Cingular Internet

    I have a 6680 EDGE capable phone with Cingular. I was going to add the MEdia NET plan (MEdia Net Unlimited $19.99 per month) so that I can browse the ben in my car. I called cingular to ask them a few questions and they told me that this plan only allows certain websites that have been designed for the phone. WTF! I would have to put a PC/Laptop card and then pay 50 dollars a month for the unlimited data package... Has anyone tested this? Is anyone getting internet from a Cingular phone and how much are you paying?

    i just activated the medianet plan @ 19.99 a month. i simply connect via BT to my laptop (havent done the install in the car)... and i get a 115k connection. was pretty easy actually. just strange going from a high speed back to 115... trying to find low bandwidth friendly sites with usefull information.

    here's a thread with some discussion
    EDGE PC Cards

    fyi, i use my cingular v551 with the unlimited edge network for 19.99/mo unlimited. i use a usb cable and get the same 115k/s. i heard a rumor today about being charged extra. i have to check my bill since i only started using it last month

    I just got my setup with Cingular working on the computer that will ultimately go into my truck. I've got the unlimited data plan with a Treo650, however that runs $40/month.
    It does use the MediaNet settings. It works pretty well and is about as fast as ISDN was back in the day. Not too bad, but certainly not blazing.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    i have the v551 also... why are you using the usb cable vs BT?? is there an advantage??

    also.. is the connection (username or such) different for the edge network... the settings i used i found in a posting for gprs. im assuming since im getting 115k... it must auto negotiate for edge??

    I work for Cingular, and just started using my V3 Razr for internet out on the road. The speeds are decent. I wouldn't do file transfers though. I may incorperate this into my setup now that I have my screen back from Xenarc. Good idea!!
