    you can not get free data

    mywi needs data. all it does is simply let you tether the data to your computer....it does not give you free 3g

    That's like ordering a hamburger with cheese and complaining because they charged you for a cheeseburger.

    I know this is actually pretty funny, but I used data in China for almost 2 months without being charged for it. When I went into ask about getting a data plan they said they had no record of me actually receiving data to my phone - So I went from a FREE data plan to a $9USD / month unlimited data plan :D

    Thanks *drops head*

    The China Mobile data system is freak'n fast too. Where I live the reception is terrible, but everywhere else it's solid as a rock. Heck, I had 3g service at Mount Everest.

    Communism FTW! /not

    I have three VPN accounts - one for both computers and one for my cell phone. Works fantastic.

    Wasn't sure you could use VPN with MobileSafari as I never had a need. Good to know.

    But when I order a Quarter Pounder without cheeze, they charge me the same price as a Quarter Pounder with cheeze. Like AT&T charging me for data usage and then charging me again just because I want to use the data I already paid for, just to tether to a laptop. It's a conspiracy I tell you!

    There is. The only problem is that when the service is shut off you have to find another iPhone to steal.

    Some services work and some don't - I've had it go a few weeks with on working but when it does it's awesome

    In about a week, if the jb is up by then, I will be updating my blog from 15,000ft setting up snow leopard camera traps.

    In my line of work, having the internet and a vpn on your phone is priceless.

    If you need recommendations on a good company, let me know.

    I see this thread taking a further turn to the south with this new comment. :eek:

    If this were to be possible, Wifi would have to exist everywhere and no one would buy a cell phone plan or data plan.
