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.

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