    Phone as modem vs. sharkmodem

    Advertisement



    I've got a little dilemma....I don't know whether to go with sharkmodem or phone as modem.
    I'll be at a some school-ish activity thing in july, but in the dorm, they dont give us an internet connection
    fortunately, i have my BB. however, i am confused as to whether i should just pay for 2 billing cycles of PAM and be able to use nearly all internet apps + use all web sites, including iTunes music store, or to use sharkmodem, forgo anything besides IM, http, and mail, but not have to pay the extra service charge...

    anybody have an idea?

    thanks!

    Afraid I have nothing to offer on this one... anyone else? My rule is generally no internet, no need to go.

    You can't make a voice call (With the 8707 you will be able to), but you are still able to use it as a modem for your computer and still send/receive emails/messeges/etc.

    That's cool, I had no clue you could use the phone as a modem.
