    No, you don't need widen to use the net.

    What is widen used for?

    Ok I been reading this thread for a while and just to be clear (tell me if I'm wrong):

    I get this I450 from bestbuy http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1118842295256 get the charger/data transfer from ebay and then I follow the steps in post #10 and then I will have net on the CarPC right?

    So couple questions:

    Besides the price for the phone I have to call and activate the phone and add money? what is the minimium?

    How do I know if the phone is web anable? (cus in boots web site they say that you have to call and activate the web browser future?

    Thanks in advance for any input.

    Thanatos.

    Ckeeks: widen = 4x faster speeds. Yes, you can track the phone (with configured mologogo software) as long as nothing inturupts the java applet while it is running (a phonecall to the phone will suspend the applet on an i415, don't know about an i450)

    Yes, you do all those steps and you can be off checking your weather and I'm ing your friends in your car.

    Minimum credited balance to the phone is $15 for every 3 months to keep the phone going when paying from your credit card (if you associate a credit card). The phone will debit $18 over the course of 3 months for internet service, however.

    You enable the web browser feature while setting up the phone via the internet. One of the questions it asks is if you want to use internet on the phone, and it says it will cost 20 cents a day wether you use it or not. You pick yes, and bam you have internet on your phone.

    Do they make cables that charge via USB? Anyone got a link to the "proper" cable that we need?

    Also, PURDooM: In your disassembly of the phone, did you see a way to attach an external antenna for the GPS?
