    I have recently switched from a verizon 6100 cell phone to the treo 700P. I have broadband access but think i would like to drop it to save some money.

    Using my old cell phone and a wire-usb cable i was able to get email and surf the web on my laptop without any broadband access charges. This was done with a cable kit and software supplied by the verizon store.

    Now that i have Treo I would like to find a way to drop the $45 per month broadband charge but still retain ability to use it as a laptop modem as a backup.

    Is this possible?

    Hmm...I'm not sure if I understand Verizon's data plans too well, but I believe that the $45 a month is just to access it on your phone, and then there's an additional $15 a month to use it as a modem. If you drop the $45 plan altogether, you'll get charged $.02/kb which will definately add up to hundreds, maybe thousands of dollars depending on your usage. I don't think you can really drop the $45 data plan. Unless you switch to Sprint, then it'll cost you $15 a month for data access, and you can use PDANet to use your Treo as a modem without modem charges.

    I have a 700P that I am paying that extra $15 at Verizon. Can I use PDANet and not have to pay that extra for what they call "broadband"?

    I would assume yes, but if you get caught, you're in trouble. It's a violation of most carriers TOS to use a phone as a modem without paying some kind of monthly fee.
