8800 and the internet

Is there anyway to connect to the internt using the 8800 without using a data package from bellsouth? wifi? bluetooth sync with computer? bluetooth sync with router?


Disabling data services to stop using bellsouth and not knowing seems to disable the browser and everything.


Thank you for your time in advance.

Re: 8800 and the internet

No, there is not any way to connect to the Internet without using a data package from BellSouth on an 8800 - it doesn't have WiFi, and without a data package there's, errr... - no data connection available!


Bluetooth will only work if the BlueTooth device on your computer uses a standard Microsoft BlueTooth driver.  That's all I know about it.


What, prey tell, would you sync with on a router?  And how would you connect to it?
