    connection sofware from your cell phone service provider
    way of connecting IE: data cable, bluetooth, IR
    power to your laptop

    MattyUmass if you are considering using your phone as a modem for a while i would look into the phones Sprint is coming out with around mid January when they roll out their EV-DO network. I believe the Sanyo 5600 will be the first fully functional handset for Sprint to have it. Speeds are 300-500 kbs with theoretical 2.4 mbs burst.
