01-30-2007, 11:55 AM
Question for you all. I have a Cing 7130C. I use it as a modem for work on the laptop while traveling. However, I can't access my VPN so I have a choice of keeping the 7130 and getting a PC card for Cingular Internet access or getting the Pearl. Couple questions...

1. How is the battery life on the Pearl vs. the 7130?
2. Does the PC card provide faster Internet access on a laptop over the Phone as a modem i?
