help - using phone as a modem to access internet

I would like to access the internet using a laptop, connection cable and the phone as a modem using Sprints unlimited Vision access plan.

I have been told Sprint doesn't advertise this possibility because they want us to buy their expensive wireless cards and download at per KB data rates.

1. Are there any provisions in place for Sprint to block this or charge per KB?

2. Will minutes be deducted from my plan while using the phone as a modem through Vision?

2. Any advice on configuring and accessing the system would be greatly appreciated.

Amazon rebate for new contract - details?

So, I bought the Treo and ported my Verizon number to Sprint.

However, I'm a little concerned about the way they opened the account.

I called the phone number Amazon's pamphlet told me to call, to activate the phone. The CSR noticed that I used to have Sprint PCS service years ago, and apparently set this up as a contract renewal, rather than a fresh, from scratch customer. I'm not sure I mentioned Amazon to them during the call, although I think I did.

Amazon's policy is unclear. Sometimes it says new contract, and sometimes it says new agreement.

I am worried because without the $200 rebate, the Treo will be a very expensive phone.

I just received a bill from Sprint for $0.00. I only activated last week and they sent me this...

Sprint service in NYC, anyone know?

I am currently a T-Mobile subscriber looking to change service.
Reception (signal strength) is most important to me.

How is Sprint in the NYC and Long Island area?

How does it compare to T-Mobile or Verizon?

thanks in advance!

What's the best plan to sign up for a Treo 600?

I haven't been with Sprint in a long time and want to know if there any tricks to getting the best plan.

I ordered from Amazon, so I have to activate with Sprint to get my rebates.

I ordered 300 minutes plus Free and Clear America - isn't that the best way to take advantage of Verizon's coverage in outlying areas?

And I ordered Vision Professional package.

I don't understand why a couple of those items were more expensively priced that what I've seen discussed in these forums.

I also was going to do one year rather than two year contract. Do you think that's a good move?

Now, a question as far as phone number. When I bought a T-Mobile phone last year in Atlanta (n. Georgia) they had no problem giving me an Atlanta number ev...

Activation problem - agreement confirmation didn't recognize #

So I went through the whole adventure of porting my number from Verizon to Sprint, but then, when the live CSR switched me over to the computer to confirm my agreement, the computer didn't recognize my PCS number as valid.

EEEEEEEEEEEK!

What to do?

Code "7A" message from Verizon during number port - what's that?

The CSR mentioned it this morning when I called to check on the status of my port.

Some sort of request for more information, but the rep didn't know what it was.

Anybody know what that is?

How concerned should I be?

Sprint GSM Service

Has anyone tried the Sprint GSM service? I saw the GSM and PDC phones. I was wondering if I can use any GSM phones that are available on the public market.

Before you tell me that Sprint doesn't have GSM, they do have GSM. In fact they also sell GSM phones as well.

Here is the link.

Sprint GSM is mainly for people who travel abroad but I was talking to a CSR and you can use it while you are in the States. Since I haven't seen any posts about Sprint GSm I was wondering if anyone out there is using the service.

The charge for internat...

Sprint is launching Push to Talk (Readylink) this week

Yes I know we've all waited for it and here it is Sprint PCS has the walkie talkie they call Readylink. It's price by itself is $15/month or if you also subscribe to PCS Vision services it's only $5/month. On the heels of Sprint's 7pm nights and weekends and mobile television the cutting edge is truly here and now.

VGA 1000 - Possible Video Capture???

When the Samsung A-620/VGA 1000 was announced, the Phone Scoop page for the phone noted that the phone was capable of video capture (now more interesting that Sprint has launched the video service), but may or may not be enabled when the phone came out. Well, it was not enabled. But I wonder if it now can be. Any thoughts? Could a software upgrade be in the works that would 'turn on' the video camera?

TIA
