    webOSers,
    Just wanted to share my experience with you all on my recent Cruise trip to Bermuda with my Palm Pre. It was Awesome..

    One week before I left for the cruise, I called Sprint customer service to inquire about my visit to Bermuda and check the prices for international data roaming. The customer rep told me that data roaming is $40/month and $4/month for international roaming with $0.69/min voice and is prorated, so if I use it for 5 days and cancel it, I will be charged for only 5 days.

    Considering the high internet charges in the Cruise (Royal Caribbean), I decided to activate my international roaming (voice + data) for the duration of my cruise trip.

    After we left Cape Liberty (NJ), after few hours I was having full roaming signals in the ship (but no data as RC blocks data services in the ship). So I knew that atleast the phone will work if there is any emergency.

    Once we reached bermuda, I got 1x data speed with Bermuda's local carrier and voice roaming.

    Thanks to YouView app, I was able to listen to all my voice mails from within the phone without having to use my voice roaming.

    I had also installed the "MyTether" app before I left for the cruise knowing that I would be able to surf on my laptop using Palm Pre. Sure enough, I hooked up my ASUS EEE PC, turned on MyTether on Palm Pre, enabled Wi-Fi tethering and voila.. my laptop was connected to the internet.

    People on the cruise were really surprised and asked me how I am using internet on my laptop and I was like.. "Palm pre baby!!!" There are things that Palm Pre can do but iPhone can't. :-)

    It was all worth it and that too without getting a big dent into my bill. Sprint + Palm Pre --- Best combination you can ever get in USA.

    This was really helpful to me since I'm leaving for Bermuda on Wednesday, but I can't find the MyTether app. Was it removed or is it under another name now?

    cheers,

    Will my tether work with a 1x signal as well or does it have to be Evdo

    That is great to hear.. Might be better and cheaper than buying a wireless aircard

    For those who don't wanna pay $15 for My Thether you can use Freethether for free

    you'll need Mobile Hot Spot. You can get it here ( Hotspotfunktion fuer das PalmPre (WebOS 1.4.0) - my curious life ) it's in German, just click on (WebOS 1.4.0 HotSpot App )

    you'll also need Freetether (2 files)

    http://ipkg.preware.org/feeds/webos-....0.3_armv7.ipk

    http://ipkg.preware.org/feeds/webos-..._0.0.1_all.ipk

    Now that you have all 3 files, install them using WebOSQuickInstall
    rest your phone.

    After the rest You'll need to enable IPFORWARDING in freetether and you're good to go

    the rest is pretty straightforward
