    okay i've searched the web through and i haven't stumbled upon an answer to this question: how can I use my Sprint Audiovox 8920 wireless phone and my G3 Dual USB iBook to connect to the I-net wirelessly?

    i know this much: i'll need a data cable. lol, that's it. that's all i know. help, please.

    thanx in advance.

    You'll have to find out if your phone is capable of acting as a modem (the mere fact that you can access the net with the phone itself doesn't mean it can act as a modem). If it can, then there's two ways you can do it, with a phone cable or Blueooth. If your phone AND your PowerBook has Bluetooth, that's the way to go. If not, you'll need a phone cable to connect the phone to your PowerBook's modem jack. Then you can dial out for internet access just like if you're plugged in a wall phone jack. Just be prepared to have a very s l o w internet experience.
