  1. Hello tdutt;

    You need a cellular data plan and a cellular adapter.
    What model Dell 'Netbook do you own?
  2. For example; AT&T has a USB 3G adapter for $45 and a monthly 3GB data plan for $35. 5GB monthly plan is $60.

    Hi, thanks for your replies.

    I have a Dell Inspiron Mini 10v netbook. And I use Verizon for all of my phone & Internet use.

    Okay, if you want to stick with Verizon, then you need to buy a wireless USB modem and a data plan.

    A $50 monthly data plan will get you 5GB of data. For $80 per month you can get 10GB of data. Those are your only choices.

  5. If you already have a smartphone, then you can opt to select a data plan for your phone which allows you to create a mobile hotspot so that you do not have to purchase a separate data plan for your netbook.

    You'll still need a USB modem though.
