I have an HP Laptop PC (Win Vista, 64 bit) and recently purchased for my other half (2/3) an iPhone handset.
And now, she'd like to have access to the Internet "on demand" so she can get graphics downloads and updates, such as the Facebook game "Farmville".
I don't think that can happen, but I need to ask if anyone has done this (without jailbreaking the iPhone). I have used Cell phones on other computers to send a FAX, but don't know what level of throughput access is available for laptops nowadays.
What are the various options to get Internet access with a portable (Notebook / Laptop) PC.
I checked the Apple iPhone website for getting connectivity through the iPhone as a modem/router handset, and it didn't work.
Realistically, if FiOS only delivers (90% of the time), less then 50% of the subscribed bandwidth, then what is the throughput reality of these portable Internet Connection devices?
There's another app on www.junefabrics.com
- called PDAnet, but requires 'jailbreaking" the iPhone, which I understand may compromise the warranty and Apples Security software. Does anyone know if this is factual or just a scare tactic by AT&T Apple division?
AT&T does offer a program for most of it's Call phones, called ACM.EXE (AT&T Communication Manager" but it does not support the iPhone.
Hints, apps such as "Air Cards", GSM Modems??, etc ? Costs, fees?
