Happy New Year and Congratulations on your new toy!!

So how exactly are you pulling this off? With your wireless/cell phone? What kinds of "stuff" do you need to pull that off?

I go camping/riding with my hubby and son often, but I don't ride, so I'm pretty bored back at camp, so...I need to figure out how I can surf the web too!

connect to this link and then use your cell phone . You will need a blue tooth capable phone though.

WW,

Not quite sure what you are asking? Are you referring to my monthly bill? If you are I do not know as I haven't got it yet. But I do have free internet on it after 9 pm.

Using your phone is OK, but for better reception and speeds, you should consider a air card, I use a sprint card at work and travel over aver town with no problems. Several folks on IRV2 use them all around the country.

No...I was just wondering about speed...I've got old Nextel phones, but their buad rate is only like 9600...terrible for trying to I/O any data. Sounds like Jim's got the solution!

We have a "Verizon" air card in the company lap top we use when traveling. Works well. So far have only ran into no service available in one place. (Fort Pickens state park in FL)

Have been in the middle of nowhere (I thought) and it worked.

But whatever way you are able to connect is NICE on the road.

How much and where do you get the verizon air card? I have a verizon phone so I wonder if I get a group discount or something. The phone and blue tooth is ok but yeah the air card sounds better. Does it just connect to the laptop? Is it a slow connection or faster like broadband?

I agree, I use a Sprint EV-DO card that averages 625k transfer rate that is twice as fast as DSL(avg 300k) or cable (avg 400k). The downside is cost, my plan is unlimited access for $79 month. But like Fire roster said, I am always in touch with the the forums
