    I heard they were developing software to detect this. Don't know if it's in place yet.
    I don't understand what that means. Like using something like Skype or voice chatting with a friend on AIM is against the TOS with your Sprint broadband connection?

    I find that ridiclious because you're paying for the bandwidth. It would be like if Comcast said you couldn't use Skype.

    From your post area, your EVDO connection card varies from broadband to 56k speeds? Ugh?

    Trying to find the link. Think it was Engadget. VOIP calls, including Skype would be subject to additional charges. Software was coming soon to Sprint to detect this type of data from your card. Comcast's primary business is not their digital phone service. So it does not affect them as much.

    Don't shoot the messenger. I don't mch care for it myself.

    My speed varies (greatly & frequently) from dial-up, to near DSL. Speed changes sometimes minute to minute. Or steady for 20 minutes.
    I find it sad/odd that people ask to be thanked. How genuine is it when you have to ask? It's like forcing your kid to call Grandma, to thank her for the new underwear she sent for their birthday.

    "To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

    I can not find a definitive source. Just rumors & blogs. I withdraw the statement. I still know I read it somewhere.

    Sorry for any confusion.
