Does anyone use their cell phone through bluetooth as a modem? I would have to buy a new cell phone, (through cingular), but I've been thinking it might be better than me getting a phone line activated or cable or dsl. Right now I don't have a phone line, i use my cell phone for everything, and i also don't have cable, which is fine by me. I was just wondering how fast the connection was and any comments on it.

I haven't tried it, but talking to a few who have...it's pretty slow.
Once I get off my rump and get a bluetooth adaptor (not happening soon...I'm incredibly broke right now), I can tell you how slow.
Yes, in the car, works well with the car's system. Get in the car and the signal recognizes the phone, dialing, phone book, pick-up, hang-up and hands free operation is built into the car.

Bluetooth modem's are slow unless you're used to 14.4k baud dial-up internet connections.

Bluetooth 1.1 and 1.2 bandwidth: 723.1 kbit/s
EDGE internet bandwidth: 384 kbit/s (20-200kbps realistic)
GPRS internet bandwidth: 170 kbit/s (30-70kbps realistic)
Doesn't look too bad for being on the road and having no wires.

using EVDO off verizon here in knoxville it's not too shabby about 600kb/sec
