    searched but couldn't find any results, so...

    does anybody have a 15/17-inch powerbook and use verizon/cingular's cellular form of wireless internet? if so, is it any good? do you recommend it?

    i'm looking for all-around info re: this subject.

    thanks!

    After seeing PC cards from both of them and SprintPCS, I'm wondering whether any of it works with Apple machines. None of the cards had the hardware requirements listed, that I saw.

    $60 per month is a huge gamble.

    kyocera on bowerbook

    I have a Kyocera kpc650 card for my 17 inch powerbook thru Verizon and it works flawlessly. The install CD does not have mac software on it yet, but I downloaded it from the Verizon site and it worked great. They do a some Mac saavy tech support and they guided me to find the software download. It works very fast using the broadband connection option.
    Go to this link for all the info in the world on these cards for a mac.
