    A number of regular cell phones will do this - it is called
    "tethering" or, in "Sprint-speak' Phone as Modem or PAM.

    Look at Sprint's web site listing for the phones - the phones that are
    PAM-capable are noted as such. Most of the Motorola phones and a
    number of the LGs & Samsungs will as well. Also, nearly all the
    PDA/Smartphones will too (Treos, Blackberrys and the HTCs).

    NOTE - most of the phones are at best capable of an EVDO Rev 0 speed -
    slower by 40% than the EVDO Rev A data cards (but still a hell of a
    lot faster than any GSM carrier data connection)

    I have used 4 different ways to get the internet from a Mogul to a laptop
    and 3 of those are wireless.

    I have used USB with Internet Sharing, WiFi with WMWiFiRouter, BT PAN with
    Intenet Sharing and I installed a program that lets me use BT DUN.

    As for the BT DUN you can read more about what I use at:
    http://groups.google.com/group/alt.c...50c52d278bded2

    BT DUN is my favorite because I don't have to do anything special to my
    phone to use it. I just use it, but I might have to hit the hang up button
    on my phone after I use it.

    WIth BT PAN or USB I have to start "Internet Sharing" and then hit the
    "Connect."
