I have a Motorola Timeport cell phone with US Cellular. I want to use it to connect to the internet with my IBM laptop. What hardware is needed? Anything special to do when creating a dialup connection in Win 2000? I called US Cellular and the people there are clueless and NO help at all. Thanks HW

You need a data cable and software. [url]http://commerce.motorola.com/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/CategoryDisplay?cgrfnbr=22&cgmenbr=126[/url] Select your phone and check Connectivity and Data Kits Then you just need a dail up service. Being online will eat you minutes.

Verizon users get internet access with their plans. It comes out to 14.4k and they are your ISP and it deducts from your minutes. Great if you have unlimited nights/weekends. Verizon also has that really faat rx1 network for $99/month unlimited.

Been there, done that. With your standard analog phone, it does not work well. I have heard good things about using them with some of the new digital services, though. Just remember, whether digital or analog, it will not be really fast.
