I just bought a Verizon V740 Express Card for my MacBook Pro. I live in the sticks and can't get DSL or Cable so I bought this as the next best solution. I do however get a perfect Verizon Cell Signal where I live (6 of 6 bars). My question for anyone who owns this is, do you need to have a special plan for this? It didn't make me buy a special plan other than the 2yr regular plan that I needed to renew for my cell phone. Does this use your plan minutes? Is it free for people with a current contract only? I'll do basically anything to make this work. A 24k dialup connection is just killing me. I've been on dialup for 8 years now and I've had enough. Satellite internet isn't an option as its very expensive, limited bandwidth, and most important, its not mobile. I called the local Verizon store and person was absolutely clueless about this thing. Does anyone use this? Good, bad experiences? Thanks in advance!
