While I was deciding on what articles to write I had to connect to the Internet. I got my PDA and plugged into my laptop. Something I do daily but never considered writing an article about it until today. PdaNet is absolutely a great program and it is FREE. PdaNet is a regular Android APP for mobile PDA’s. The APP allows FULL internet access for FREE. Why it is FREE is because you are using your phones ‘unlimited’ data access. All mobile companies now offer this as standard.
I was paying for ‘unlimited’ talk and data as well as paying $60 a month for internet access via their mobile card for my laptop. When I purchased my new PDA phone the sales rep told me about PdaNet and told me to try it out. I was very skeptical about what kind of speed I would get vs the mobile card.
Installing the software was simple and quick. I plugged in my USB cord to my laptop and then the connector to my PDA. With one click I was attached to the Internet. It was fast. It was simple. It was FREE. I cancelled the $60 a month mobile card the very next day. That was 6 months ago and I have not looked back. The speed is the speed of my mobile device!
