    Uhm, Can I just go get a dial up account at some isp for $9.99/month and have the treo dial in for internet access as appose to paying $12/mb from my carrier?

    Who is your carrier? Sprint gives me an unlimited data plan for $7.50 a month.

    And, FWIW, the answer to your previous question is no.

    From what I understand, it depends on your carrier. I've read some reports on T|C that people have managed to set this up, thereby using only voice minutes for data. Other folks (Verizon subscribers in particular) have said that they get nailed for both voice minutes and data when attempting dial-up. Either way, you'll at least burn voice minutes. Not sure which group Rogers falls into.

    One drawback to doing data via dial-up is that you will not get your calls while connected to the ISP.

    that would be more than fine with me.... IF anyone here knows how to set it up so i can dial into an isp lemme know........ or pm me a link if its not allowed outright

    I don't care about burning minutes, or missing calls.
