    I assume since its a Vision phone like the 4900, What O'siris said
    applies:

    It does, but only if he's trying to dial into another ISP. If he's=20
    using the "#777" option to access Vision directly, then the ToS I've=20
    posted previously apply. This is packet-switched data, and so falls=20
    under Vision charges. The Vision packs will cover for this, but only=20
    until the group watching for this use catches sight of it. If his usage=20
    catches the eyes of the group watching for this, then he's going to lose=20
    his vision pack. 1=A2/KB from that point on. Also if he's using the=20
    dialer program I think he's using (Futuredial's, or our own), then he=20
    need not be worried about dial tone or the per-minute charge. People=20
    have reported here in the past that Win2K's DUN app (XP's also) will=20
    dial #777 to access Vision if you set it up right. Same rules, though. =20
    It violates ToS, and will get your Vision service pack removed=20
    permanently if caught. So far, based strictly on calls I've received=20
    and thus totally unofficial, only huge, multi-gigabyte-per-month users=20
    have been hit with this policy. But the policy itself cites all such=20
    use as abuse of Vision.

    Good stuff Rob. Can we all keep to Sprint related stuff, and leave the
    personal attacks out of all our posts?

    That "all" is a significant word, Phill. I can't promise *or* guarantee=20

    And one minute later the Sprint apologist gets personal.

    Do you come home and get drunk before you come online?

    No, it really isn't. Phill himself has staked a lot of criticism over=20
    this project. I don't consider it a personal attack to be told I'm=20
    going to eat crow. It means simply and only that I'm wrong. I may not=20
    agree that I will, but I certainly won't take it personally.

    Phill, I ask you again. How is stating that you're wrong about SMS getting=
    =20
    personal? I really want to know.

    You have not attacked me since you claimed I attacked you, other than in=20
    understandable snap-backs like this, so please understand I am simply and o=
    nly=20
    asking. I meant no personal attack. I *am* challenging your stance on SMS=
    ..

    Please answer the question. I won't ask again, but I would like to know.
