| | Cost for using 8300 as a laptop modem on AT&T
Please Login to Remove!
I'm currrently using a T-Mobile PCMCIA data card for a laptop internet connection while traveling. Costs $29 a month for unlimited access. Works reasonably well, particularly when EDGE service is available.
I wanted to replace both this card and my VZW mobile phone with an 8300 and need only BIS service, but I need to be able to use it as an internet connection when wireless is not available.
Visited the AT&T website and found they charged almost $75 per month if the device was used as a tethered modem.
Is this the plan that must be purchased for BB sevice when you use the device as a tethered modem, or is there another way to get the service at a more reasonable price?
