Anyone post on Arfcom with a palm pilot type device?
(is it easy to read, how much for the service?)

Still looking for a portable method of web access

The two I have found for laptops are around $90\month

Do any cel-phones still offer unlimited anytime minutes?

It was plain text on a white background

NO BUTTONS for posting

I use a Samsung i730. Though Verizon. IT has EVDO which is DSL like at 500kbs dL, 100kbs up. Costs about $35-$40 a month for unlimited use (data plan). Its cool to listen tp streaming music and post from far away places...like when I was stuck in a snowstorm on a mountain pass.

I've never had a problem finding unsecured WiFi just about anywhere I go. And it's free.

Verizon is one of the $80 choices for laptop access

Do you use Arfcom's "Lite Version" to post on your Samsung?

Can you get news services like Drudgereport.com and AP?

Does it open multiple windows?

Can you post a screen shot?

Thanks

That's what I've been using the last couple of days.

You can usually find it around hotels or in residential areas.

I used a PSP, but it was really too slow.

dont do the laptop access. its a rip. Just get an evdo capable phone and use bluetooth as a modem. as far as the rest of the questions. It is the same as regular internet surfing and I dont use the lite version. Multiple windows=no. Screen shot? I dont know if I can, maybe.

If it won't open multiple windows I don't think it will work for me, thanks for the info

Yup, but it worked much better when I reset the browser to support HTML.

Its been 18 months, I do remember it wasn't pretty.
