Cell phone as modem
I'm about to make the change from my broadband provider to my Verizon Palm Treo700p as a modem. I had to install SP2, which I was reluctant to until I just had to. I had to download all the drivers from Palm etc. Now I just got to find my cord to connect my Treo to my PC. I lost it a while back since I never used the sync feature. I don't use Windows for anything other than an OS, no outlook, email or anything. Gotta love the open source code guys.
What happened was, my internet was $29/mo, it just went up to $51/mo. I'm already paying for unlimited internet on my Palm Treo about $50/mo. I asked why not try to use the phone as a modem, turns out you can. I have the service activated, got my broadband getting cut in 2 days. Just wondering if anyone has done this. What can I expect. Other than slow as DSL speeds. Going from 10megs to 600k is going to hurt a bit, but not as much as the $51.
