I've had Cingular before and there Edge technology is really slow compared to Verizon EVDO technology. However, I use an old Motorola E815 and have used the device as a modem to my laptop of the past year or two. This is before they installed the firmware and you can use the device as a modem and tether for free. Well not free b/c it cost you minutes but you catch my drift. You don't even need to get V-Cast. Anyway, b/c the device has an internal antenna it works @ speeds of 250-290 Kbps whereas the E815 works from 350 Kbps up to the highest I've seen @ 500 Kbps. The speeds made me go back to Verizon and I've never looked back.
Real estate developer. What can I say I need my information quick 🙂 .
Verizon is expensive and they don't cut you any breaks but they are the best serviced I used. I'd like to go w/ an unblocked GSM phone but my experience w/ Verizon service has been much better than AT&T. I've never had T-Mobile b/c they don't have 3G phones and I know they drop a lot of calls b/c many of my friends use the phone since they had a contract w/ the City of Philadelphia.
you do realize that EVDO is CDMA version of at&t 3g. its a wireless broadband network.edge is 2g. what i want you to do davey is take an at&t edge device and put it up speed for speed against verizons 1xRTT and you will see the difference in the 2g technologies. especially if you go against a blackberry which can run faster than most 3g devices before you modify its ssettings. then i want you to take your EVDO and match it with a 3g device, lets say the at&t 8525. tell me which is faster. 8525 must be in 3g coverage area. 😁
