    Re: Data cable for internet, stalling out?

    You pay for unlimited service *on* the phone, not *through* the
    phone to some other device.
    Perhaps you could make a case for use *through* one of the phones
    that have pocket pc or win ce as their op. system and you are paying
    $30/mo for Vision.

    Hmmm indeed. *You* quoted 40 lines of *unsnipped* text, including even
    the signature. If you are so lazy and inconsiderate as NOT to snip and
    just quote the relevant parts, then you *should* top post. Readers of
    this thread had to scroll down through that quoted mess just to read
    your 8 line response, three of which was the above.

    It's not the newsreader you use, it's *how* you use it that makes one's
    ignorance stick out like a sore thumb.

    Then the ability to run data should not be in the hardware of the phone.

    If you put a bannana tree in the monkey cage what do you think will happen?

    If Sprint ever started enforcing this provision on casual laptop users,
    I'll be switching to T-Mobile in a heart beat. T-Mobile doesn't charge
    extra for GPRS internet access.
    BTW, don't bother chastising me for top posting. I don't like to scroll
    through screen after screen of quoted text to get to the new text.
    I already read the quoted stuff previously, so I don't need to waste time
    by seeing it and scrolling through it again.

    This is the ping I used when I had Sprint ping -l 1 -t yahoo.com
    I was under the impression the data transferred was a very small amount and
    I was not using much bandwidth. Was I wrong? DonnaB

    I am SO with you regarding top posting. I don't need to re-read all
    the previously posted stuff. I MUCH prefer top posting.

    I am not sure. I am guessing their is "idle" data being sent as long as the
    vision icons are solid.

    pinging will keep them solid.

    when I goto a website they go solid. a few moments after it loads they go
    "dim" meaning no traffic but it ready when I want more.

    IE I am reading the page and using "0" bandwidth (this is not possible on
    wireless web or modem dial ups since they have to send something just to
    maintain the connection) this makes it VERY effecient.

    alas it can "stall" sometimes. its very much NOT a big deal and rarely
    happens. I would rather have the stall than take a chance of them whacking
    me.

    browsing and e-mail for me...large file downloads is what the land line
    is for...sprint probably knows who's hogging bandwidth...
