    You get unlimited data usage for your phone. Verizon will tell you that this is for applications native to the phone. They will also tell you that if you want to use your Treo as a modem for your laptop, you will need to pay an additional 15 bucks a month.

    A program called PDAnet will allow you do that for a one time fee of 30 bucks. Although Verizon doesn't specifically state that you can use PDAnet, many of us do with no problems.

    You can do all those things with your EVDO plan.

    If you want XM on your 700w, use your phone's browser and go to http://mobile.minixm.com. There's a website I just learned about called www.orb.com. I went to this website on my home computer, downloaded the software, and now using my 700p I can wirelessly access audio and videos that are stored on my home computer!! It's awesome. That's what your high speed internet gets you!

    Unlimited means unlimited ... well except for what's written in the fine print

    Verizon's terms of use explicitly ban other uses, including streaming media, applications in which the host acts like a server and voice-over-IP. The terms of use language also particularly forbears replacing a wireline connection like DSL with EV-DO.

    Verizon's agreement notes that it can limit throughput and data transferred or cancel an account without notice whenever they think terms are violated or when a legitimate use affects their network adversely. On discussion forums such as EVDOforums.com, a small number of users have reported being cut off by Verizon Wireless for overusing 3G.
