Mobile Wireless Packet Data for Dummies
An SI Board Since May 2003

Emcee:  Eric L Type:  Moderated
This thread is for users or wannabe users of wireless packet data services who would like to share their experiences using, or attempting to use, 1xRTT, GPRS, EDGE, WCDMA, or 1xEV-DO "always on" packet data.

WiFi is only on topic if it is coupled with mobile wireless data services.

The focus here is on "always on" packet data services, the carriers that offer them, their handsets, their product offer, their pricing plans, and their coverage.

User experience is especially appreciated.
