hi:

how can i access internet with laptop and cell phone?

i did my homework, basically, there are 2 ways:

a) use cell phone as modem, access internet through existing dial up ISP account;

b) use wireless internet service provided by cell phone, on laptop

in theory, i can have both. either of them is in unlimited plan. the latter is supposed to be faster. but neither is working yet.


Javaranch, one of the biggest fun you can have on cell phone!

I did "b" for a few months. Speed is a little faster than good dial-up. But a lot depends on signal strength.
