    Thanks,
    Jon

    Unlimited MediaNet allows unlimited web access from your handset. PDA
    plan is for a PDA "handset". If you want to use a laptop tethered to
    your phone handset, use the $59 unlimited data plan.

    If you tether your handset to a laptop using the $20 unlimited MediaNet,
    there is credible evidence that you may eventually be hit with a data
    charge of hundreds of dollars

    Of course you guys cannot post replies in threads without starting up
    another huge debate where no one agrees and the group gets clogged up with
    15 replies of not just you, but also John and some others going back and
    forth with your smart ass attitudes and attacks on whether the other poster
    really has credibile evidence.

    Its getting old. I wish y'all would grow up.

    Those of us with clue continue to use it that way without such charges.
    As I've pointed out before, your "credible evidence" (unverifiable anecdotal
    report) was almost certainly a billing screwup (as happened to me), which
    Cingular will correct if asked (as it did for me).

    Your post wasn't on topic, only fans the flames, and thus wasn't any better.
    I suggest you take your own advice.

    Bottom line, if you can't Google it, it ain't true. Guess its time to
    scan some Cingular contracts and billing copies.

    That's a good insight. Basically, Google has brought to everybody, and to
    all subjects, the kind of verifiability that we used to get by doing lots of
    work in big libraries.

    You have a clue? About what? Certainly nothing to do with cellular.


    > As I've pointed out before, your "credible evidence" (unverifiable

    Which you are famous for (unverifiable anecdotal reports), and yet you
    criticize those who post in the same light. And when your false claims are
    countered with fact, you disappear and run away like a scared child.

    > was almost certainly a billing screwup (as happened to me), which

    And you base this on what facts? Is this an anecdotal guess of your own?

    While I said that "tongue-in-cheek", there is an incredible amount of
    verifiable data on the 'Net. You have to use common sense and the "sniff
    test" all the time. Its rather funny when you Google for a particular
    phrase and you find it on dozens of website, you want to scream plagiarism.

    But even if I did scan and post the billing and contract info, someone
    (and I won't name names) will attempt to dilute it with "hogwash" and
    say I doctored the scans.

    Yes... There was somebody recently who made a study of the plagiarism rules
    of various universities, looking them up on the Web, and the first thing
    they found was that many of them seemed to be unacknowledged copies of each
    other.

    There is of course a lot of falsehood on the Net. But if something is
    disputed, you can quickly find out about the dispute.

    Just like a big library, but much faster!
