Does this phone support data? (Act as a modem?)

by Toril    Oct 26, 2003, 8:21 PM

Hi folks,

I work for an ISP, so I have a free dialup account (yay) but unfortunately am on call every few weeks (boo). So, I like to keep a laptop on me with a cell phone that is data enabled.
My cingular contract is up at the end of January, and I've been with them for 2 years, with an Ericsson R278d. (In NY, also). Thinking of upgrading to a new phone and switching over to the GSM network from the TDMA. My wife wants a Motorola T720. I've chosen this phone as mine, but no stores carry it yet.
My question is: does this support data? The info tab here says "supports fax". Looking at the user's manual on LG's site, looks like there's an infrared port, and you can communicate with a PC via a standard Irda port. (Which can be had for about $10-15 on ebay). Anyone have any luck with this? Can I use this phone as a modem with my laptop to dial my ISP (the one I work for?) Please let me know ... Thanks!
