    With SprintPCS, probably not *in* the house. Try the back yard.

    Possible to network a connection card?

    This may not be possible but,
    Can I get a connection card, a router with bluetooth and connect it to
    the connection card so all my computers/ipaqs can use it around the
    house? I could then drop the phone company all together


    Thanks

    If you setup a DUN connectoid to connect to Vision, maybe. From what I=20
    understand, our PCS Connection Manager software is pretty unforgiving=20
    about multiple network connections running simultaneously.

    Where do you live? Most area's I've been in, Sprint PCS has great
    coverage. I was even greatly supprised that I had coverage from Salina,
    KS all the way to Charlete, NC (Except for a 60 mile streach in NC I
    had digital roam) when I went on a road trip. That was when i had an
    A500.

    I know that there are some towns where sprint has bad coverage. No
    provider has good coverage in every town they are in. In Colorado
    Springs, I used to have verizon. When I switched to sprint, I got way
    better coverage.

    My point: Just because where you live you don't have good coverage,
    doesn't mean it applies to everyone else.

    I think he was refering to the 1900(PCS) freq vs the 800(VZW)
    penetrating signal and not the coverage per his location......

    A comment on "bars"...

    One should never look at the number of "bars" as any indication of
    signal strength. They're put there by the manufacturer of the phone.
    One manufacturer might decide that a weak signal deserves one bar,
    while the next thinks two would be more appropriate. Etc., etc. Not
    only is there no standard between manufacturers, there's not even a
    standard between phones from the *same* manufacturer.

    In your case the difference between one bar and four bars might be
    the equivalent of the difference between one bar and two bars, from
    another phone/manufacturer.

    And there might even be a difference between this months batch of a
    particular model, and next months batch.
