Yes, you can.

I recently bought the VZW "Mobile Office" Kit.

It was fairly simple to install the software, and after doing so all you need to do is connect the included cable to your laptop and phone. I've been able to surf using a work dial-up account & phone number.

Note: Be careful which dial-up option you use. If you start using VZW's "high speed" option, they will likely want to charge your account for that service ($39 and up). If you use the "low speed" option to dial your own ISP or modem, the only "charge" is for minutes used. If you dial up at night / weekends, it is likely free to suft all you want...

OK, Perhaps some help.

Have Verizon with data service subscription. Using Datapilot software and cable. When I try to access Internet via Verizon low speed access, it automatically shows a phone number of #777 with my user name and password automatically filled in. When I hit connect, after a few seconds it states "There was a hardware failure ion the modem (or other connecting device.)

when I dial #777 on my phone, I get a recorded message unable to complete my call.

How can I access the Internet from my laptop using the data link cable through Verizon??? Thanks in advance.
