    The poll should be pointed out it is specific to Sprint. Verizon is $60/month to tether and $45/month just for in-phone data only.

    I'm sure it is possible to hack it. Change the instructions in the code to all say phone connection rather than usb or bt. I would just be concerned that since they can track the mb used and a laptop is sure going to use more mb than the phone service they'd start sending you nasty grams and a big bill after a while.

    yes, the sprint tv option will suck data but that stream isn't the same stream you'll see from a website. That is an optimized for mobile stream i.e. it is a smaller mb transfer...more compression. You can do that on the smaller screen and not see degradation...as you would on a bigger screen laptop. It's interesting and yes an adventure in intellectual exercise. The carriers are closing the doors and watching the cracks. It's going to be interesting.

    Good call. I hate Verizon so much that I don't consider them a carrier anymore :-). If anyone knows how this can be done, I'd appreciate it. I can't seem to edit the thread with my permissions.

    ShadowMite, if you are listening, would you think about hacking a way to force the 700P to the 1xRTT network, so that DUN can be done the same way it is on the Treo 650?
