Just get a Palm Treo. I can get to just about any website from my phone. No computer necessary!

I have a Treo 600 with unlimited online/network access. Using the USB cable, I downloaded PDANet. This program allows you to use your Treo/Sprint network like a modem so you get online for free. Haven't used it but someone showed me on theirs.

So why pay Sprint $40/mo to do it with PCM CIA card, when my Treo doe sit for free.

I have the Treo 650. Do you really have to USB it to PDANet? Or is that just preference? I can read every post right on my phone, even floating on the boat!
