    Question Using a cell phone for dial-up

    Can a person use a cell phone for dial-up? Considering that some service provider are offering an excessive amount of minutes, it would be interesting. I thinking of something like they used in Wargames or maybe an adapter to plug into the modem.

    I am not talking like using the wireless internet provided by the cell phone service provider, but wireing the wireless.

    Yeah, they actually do have that feature for a lot of cell phones. You will need a cable to connect it to your computer, and keep in mind that internet will be very slow.

    Could use GPRS, works in the UK. I have an Belkin IR adaptor that plus into the USB port on my laptop, I can be set up to either use normal dial up or GPRS which we pay for by the amount of bandwidth used. Guess it must be the same in the USA.

    Exactly what I have with T-Mobile. I pay $2.99 a month for 1MB of data, which is about 500 page views. I can use my IR port for internet, but I dont, and I can also buy a cable to do it.
