its a PDA according to cingular

I had wondered about this as I just got my E62 on Friday. I called Cingular CS and was assured that I could get the MediaNet unlimited plan ($19.99) and use it with both browsers, including the HTML one. I currently only use POP email from two accounts that I have set up as well.

there is a loop hole which u found
u can use it not a problem doing it that way
unlimited is unlimited
and it won't affect u because u are not using UMTS only edge so u should be fine
but
if u tether that device to your laptop more than 2 times a week
they will know
so
if u are just doing casual browsing then u should be fine for the mean time
good luck and enjoy your device
i seem to be getting much better at mine

Thanks Licor....

Question though, what exactly is "tethering" to my laptop? The only time my phone is "near" my laptop is to Synch with PC Suite. Otherwise I am confused, I don't think I am doing anything with my laptop/phone together.

basically tethering is what they call it when u use your mobile phone to access the web on your laptop

when u connect to sync thats fine because u have to active the phone as a modem for it to become tethered

otherwise how is your experience with it so far?

I'm enjoying it, but I really miss a camera on the phone. That is the one thing I wish the E62 had.

I still would love to try the 8125 sometime.
