Ok, I called Cingular. The MMS unlimited is still available for $20.
But can I use my PDA (Ipaq w/bluetooth and T637) to access the
internet and my email?
Yes, I have T-Mobile now and it is great and free to do all this , BUT
their service isn't available at my home.....Cingular is.....
Can I hook up my home computer to access internet also?
I know this can be done with the pay/kb fees but is it available with
the Media Package so I can control cost without running up minutes
also?

Thanks,
Larry

I changed to the Media Works package after running up some impressive phone
bills with an Internet Express plan. After changing I was unable to log onto
the internet using my V400 as a Modem. After 4 calls to Cingular I was told
that the Media packages only worked with the phone internet and if I wanted
to use my PC I would have to sign up for one of the data connect plans.

I have to say that I am not impressed with the way these services are being
marketed and supported. All I want to do is to access the internet, from my
PC via my mobile phone when I do not have access to a network (wireless or
wired).Surely there is a plan that will let me do this at a reasonable
price.

Most of us (including myself) just use MEdia Works for that.

Sorry, but I can't help there. I just called CSand added MEdia Works. Then I
set up my T616 to connect via bluetooth to my laptop and use its GPRS
connection to browse. Slow (about dial up ... 40-50kbps), but bearable.
