    That counts as a hard-core hacker guy's ROM. :-)

    A lot of the custom Sprint stuff really is just crap... I'm always annoyed
    that, since it's in "ROM," you can't move some of the "Programs" menu icons to
    at least collect all that stuff in a "Sprint Junk" folder or similar.

    As usual you don't know what you are talking about.

    The $25 fee is for tethering to a computer and does not matter if you
    are connected at 1X or EVDO.

    The $10 charge is for use for handset apps ONLY and is not connected
    to the data speed in any way.

    No we don't. However, I'm not at work so I'm free to call you a
    dumbass all I want, dumbass.

    I can do whatever I want here. I'm not on the clock and am not
    speaking for Alltel in any capacity. I simply speak what appears to
    be the truth - and it is widely acknowledged in these groups that
    Larry is a dumbass.

    Hi dafydd,

    You have a lot of incorrect information in your post.

    No. Unless you have a PAM plan on your phone (http://
    support.sprint.com/doc/sp10397.xml?id16=phone_as_modem) you WILL be
    charged at casual data rates for using the PAM.

    Also, if you have the PAM plan this includes data for the phone. In
    other words, if you have the attachment mentioned above, one does not
    need an additional power vision attachment.

    No. Unless you have a PAM plan on your phone (http://
    support.sprint.com/doc/sp10397.xml?id16=phone_as_modem) you WILL be
    charged at casual data rates for using the PAM.

    More very incorrect information. If your phone is PAM capable, then
    regardless of account attachments it will connect just fine when you
    run DUN on your computer.
