    Instead of pinging yahoo.com. Symantec operates a ping server for just
    that purpose at ping.symantec.com

    You're right. When the connection is made, I get a Windows notification
    that says: "SprintPCS now connected. Speed: 230.4 Kbps."
    However, that is the laptop-to-modem speed. To get the actual network
    speed I took the speed test at http://sfo.speakeasy.net :

    Your download speed : 103614 bps, or 103 kbps.
    A 12.6 KB/sec transfer rate.
    Your upload speed : 56393 bps, or 56 kbps.

    This is with a Samsung VGA1000.

    Ah. Interesting though that the VGA1000 does that laptop-to-modem
    speed, whereas my Sanyo USB drivers only allow 115,200 (the max speed of
    a regular serial port).

    103 kbps is not bad at all.

    I do not travel enough (6-7 trips/year) to justify maintaining a data plan,
    but it would be convenient to occasionally check the email while in the car.
    I have a Sanyo 4700 (non-Vision). If I get one of the old PCS Wireless Web
    Connection serial cables for this phone, can I use it like a modem to call
    my ISP computer for these occasions. THanks, larry

    YES you can. Used to do it with my 4700. And now do with my 5150.
