Hi

I have a SL-C3100 (Sharp ROM, Tetsu kernel).

Does anyone know of a way of connecting directly to the Internet - like a mobile phone without the voice part? Maybe a special CF card?

Thanks, DaveL

Once again, thanks a lot for the information.

I have found an article on "GPRS in the UK", and I think I understand a little better now.

A couple of points.

It says that with GPRS, you pay for the amount of data transferred - not the time - so am I correct in thinking that a given file would take longer than the 3G option but cost the same?

I still use dial-up (56K) at home on my PC (not Broadband) and it suggests average GPRS speeds ~25-40kbps so it should only seem maybe half as slow as I'm used to - does that sound right?

I'm sure your suggestion that the Bluetooth option would be better overall is correct, but I think I'll have a go at getting the RTM-8000 working anyway.
I'll post the result - success or failure (but it might take me a while!)

Dave
