    I have my Sprint phone on the vacation plan. I know it will cost me $1 a
    minute if I use it to make a phone call. Yikes. However, what if I use
    Vision but not a voice call. How much would that cost? O/Sirus could you
    also tell me if I can have a month-to-month plan for Vision only? Thanks!

    I have a related question in that case. So if one gets Vision,
    anything transferred does not use minutes? For instance,
    if I got to weather.com or some vision enable site (is that
    the right way to say it?), and spend 10 minutes getting the
    weather for the next week (just guessing this is possible with it),
    then are 10 minutes of airtime incurred?

    Vision does not count against any of your minutes. However while using Vision,
    you can not receive or make phone calls on that device.

    No, and it's been said to you a number of times here that minutes aren't
    used, when using Vision.

    I just reread all the messages in the two threads I've posted
    to here and did not see said. Maybe my ISP is having a problem.
    Can you point me to at least one of those messages,
    as it probably says some other things I'd like to see too.

    Donna,

    Why don't you give it a try and see if Vision even works at all?

    Let us know what happens.

    Run it for a minute or so and check your billing to see if you were charged.

    Then let us know about that too.

    Thanks

    Evad

    *very* interesting question, Donna. Frankly, I've never seen it come=20
    up. I'd have to guess you pay a penny per KB, because no Vision=20
    Package would remain in effect. There is no mention of Vision usage=20
    in the Vacation Plan description. Hence, I would say it defaults to=20
    casual usage.

    I'll see if I can get confirmation or refutation on that.

    Never never, no never ever. Minutes are not applicable to Vision. =20
    Vision bills and tracks by the KB. And only by the KB. Flat rate=20
    via a Vision pack, or a penny per KB for casual usage (anything not=20
    covered by a pack).

    Ok, I've since found the applicable URL (and bought a Samsung VI660).

    I understood $15/month = unlimited handheld Ks.
    Are you saying that if you don't do the $15/month it's $0.01KB?

    O/Sirus - you are right. I just got an email from Sprint confirming that it
    is a penny per KB when on the vacation plan. Thanks. Thus if I want to use
    Vision for email or very little surfing when on the road I won't have to
    reactivate my $30 plan and pay the $10 extra for no contract and then the
    $15 for Vision. This is great as it will only cost me $5 a month plus $ .01
    per kb to use Vision! I have another cell phone provider for voice calls.

    I've never used Greg's development tools and compilers, but I know they
    have been around just this side of forever - Comeau is a specific brand like
    Microsoft Visual <whatever> or MetroWerks CodeWarrior, etc.

    I assume that Greg owns the company...
