have had sprint internet for 8 years now. when it first rolled out. and still full of glitches. i've always used my phone as a modem. no extra billing. started off with a regular phone. before color screens and text and all the other fancy smancies we have now. i was a long haul driver, and it was my only source for internet. mobile cards didn't even exist back then. blackberry was just getting started. with it's email only devices. got my first pda phone 3 years ago, it was winmo. one night i left it on and downloaded 2 gigs. no problems. now i have the curve. all these years i've only paid 10 bucks a month for internet. now it's a bundled package. but my overall monthly price is still the same it was 8 years ago.
