    I noticed that some notebook vendors have an option to build-in or include a card for high speed internet wireless access through sprint, cingular, etc. Is something like this an option for a MBP? Is anyone out there doing this?

    Alternatively, is it possible for the MBP to use a bluetooth connection to a cell phone to get high speed internet access through the phone's connection?

    Thanks!

    It is possible for the MBP to use a phone for a modem using bluetooth, if you have an iPhone its isnt officially supported but there is a hack out there I'm sure if you google it you will find it. Some wireless providers do offer 3G internet express card 34 cards, I don't know much about which American providers have what but if it shouldn't be hard to find out.

    How much do they charge for monthly service nowadays? It used to be very very pricey. I heard that rates have fallen a lot lately though.

    Thanks for the replies. I'll keep that in mind as I start figuring out how to stay connected :)
