    I need advice on which cell phone provider right now has the best 3G network to use its internet feature. Also which provider has the best Smartphone\PDA that can be used as to access the internet using a laptop. I used to do it with a sprint phone until they started charging for their Vision Plans. Any recommendations? I live in lower Texas where some services really suck, just thought you like to know.

    Is there anyway to use verizon's internet accessed PDA Smartphone to use as a broadband modem for a laptop and use the unlimited web access feature?

    Verizon has changed its policy and will now let subscribers use several popular phones as high-speed modems for their laptops. The shift represents a major policy change for Verizon, which has traditionally restricted this type of usage in its terms of service agreement. The new plans are available starting today. A formal announcement will be released later today or tomorrow, company representatives said.

    Users of the LG VX9800, Motorola RAZR V3c, Motorola E815, and LG VX8100 phones are now able to connect their laptops to the Internet for $59.99 per month in addition to their voice plans.
    IS THIS TRUE, XV6700 doesn't work as a modem yet....? I found this story in another forum.

    They join users of the Blackberry 7130e handheld, who have been able to use their PDA/phones as modems since the 7130e came out. Users of the new Palm Treo 700w and Verizon XV6700 handhelds are still out in the cold, according to Verizon's initial device list.

    All these devices will connect to Verizon's BroadbandAccess EV-DO network, which offers speeds averaging about 700 kbps/sec in most major metro areas of the US. The official announcement from Verizon mentions using a USB cable, not Bluetooth wireless technology, to connect your phone and PC. All the phones listed above can theoretically connect to PCs using Bluetooth, but Verizon disables that modem function. USB cables are available from various sources for $10-20; you can also use the cable that comes with the VX8100's V CAST Music kit.

    Verizon subscribers have illicitly used their phones as modems; various Web sites have information on how to do so. But up until now, doing so has violated service contracts, leaving users open to Verizon cutting off their service or charging high per-kilobyte fees.
