    thats sounds closer to what i've got goin. But in all honesty its used in my car only to get updates for weather, traffic, n stuff like that. If i need to go browsing for something i use my verizon phone thats permanently mounted OR go with my verizon bluetooth connection

    FWIW, I currently have Tmobile EDGE with WIFI hotspot use. With my Motorola V330, which is a class 8 EDGE device IIRC, I get consistent 90 to 120 kbps (thats kilobit) using the phone's built in bluetooth. I am grandfathered in my plan at $20/mo. for that. I think it runs $25/mo. now.

    I am very tempted to get Sprints EVDO service, which is nice especially since they are currently upgrading to rev. A speeds. $50/mo. for unlimited isn't too bad, and I think I can rationalize that cost since I am dropping my landline at home.

If Wi-DEN isn't as fast as that, maybe I'll stick to what I got. It's free anyway. It's just a pain to have to connect the phone to it's USB cable if I want net.
    I'm quoting the speed test results from http://www.dslreports.com/mspeed?jisok=1 which displays kbits/second.

    I checked the math and it seems to square up - a 50kB file would be 400kb (50x8), which @20bps, would take 20 seconds (plus latency) - and that's about what I'm getting, pretty routinely.

    #1 - You guys are aweful! I resisted this thread for months and lived with just plugging in whatever cdma modem I had while in the car. Yesterday I got a i450 from walmart, addicting or what

    #2 - does anyone have the pinout for the 450? I cannot find a data cable anywhere and I am going on a trip monday and need internet so I can't wait for ebay. I tried modifying the connector on a v500 cable but I'm not getting any usb install dialog when I connect it. The best I could find was a i450 car charger from Target (no dollar stores had anything for an i series). I am going to try and swap the pin from the v500 cable over to the car charger cable. Is there a chip in the i450 cable? This page seems to indicate the i series are straight through? http://pinouts.ru/CellularPhones-A-N...0_pinout.shtml

    #3 - here's a site with some interesting stuff on getting a serial gps signal

    Thanks to PureDoom and everyone else for helping me spend money

    #2 - so I transfered the pins from a V500 connector to the car charger I bought and used the pin orientation from PureDooms 415 pic (same as the v500 anyway) and tweaked some things on the locking lugs and it installed ok. Trying to get webjal running now.

    I guess I was confusing b with B.

    A 56k modem gets around 48kbps = 6kBps. My non-EVDO Sprint phone gets around 8-10kBps. If even WiDEN is slower than a 56k modem, I just lost a lot of interest .

    The Boost solution is painfully slow, but it is very cheap - you get what you pay for.

    It should work OK for things like downloading weather updates for your car-pc front end, but if you want to do any sort of significant websurfing and do things like streaming Internet music - other solutions are needed.

    I just need it for location uploading and weather updates. I have BT 1x or EVDO with my main phone if needed.
