    Re: Which PC card is best for data service?


    Personally I have only tried the Novatel Merlin C201 and Aircard 550 and
    noticed no difference. We sell many more Merlin C201 cards than any
    other brand.

    We do however recommend the Aircard 550 if you're using it in a camper
    or truck so you have the option of using an extrnal, roof mounted
    antenna.

    I just bought the AirPrime from Larry and have to say that it worked great
    this past week in Corolla, NC. There where a couple of times that I would
    get that the distant end was not responding when I tried to connect, but it
    would work fine on the next attempt.

    Larry is also a great guy to buy from.

    Whatever has happened to that CF card (that could also -- using an
    adapter -- double as a regular PC card)? Since I use a Pocket PC a lot,
    that would be better for me should I ever go the card route -- I could
    use it in the Pocket PC *or* the laptop.

    I remember seeing it discussed here many months ago, but not recently,
    and I've wondered if the card is at the same level as the Merlin and
    Aircard.

    I tried one for two weeks..the CF-2031. Its a CF slot device and worked
    pretty good in my Casio E-115 PDA. The reason I brought it back for a refund
    was that it just didnt work INSIDE buildings or my office in downtown Los
    Angeles worth a damn
    Sad too because it was a pretty neat toy....Eddie

    It's called the Yiso CF2031. It's under the connection card section in
    "Shop for phones" at sprintpcs.com

    Ah, Thanks!

    I never heard of "Yiso" before.

    Eddie, did you try a Merlin or Aircard in the same buildings? Sprint
    signals often don't get inside buildings *period*, so I'm wondering if
    it was the card or the signal.

    > Sad too because it was a pretty neat toy....Eddie


    Maybe it's because "Yiso" CF doesn't have the quality of the PC-card
    manufacturers. Maybe Novatel, Sierra, etc. might bring out a CF card...
    Here's hoping anyway.
