In the review for the Audiovox PPC-6700 from Sprint, Lisa Gade wrote, "There's been some confusion about the required data plan for this phone, and Sprint confirmed with us that you need only add on their $15/month Vision plan to get full data (with EVDO in covered areas) on the phone. Of course, this doesn't cover tethering the phone to a notebook as a wireless modem using a USB cable or Bluetooth. That said, the included software CD has drivers to use the phone as a wireless modem when connected via USB to a Windows PC. Since EVDO's speeds are higher than Bluetooth's, you want to use USB rather than BT should you use the phone as a modem."
I'm confused. It sounds like it is technically possible to connect my laptop to EVDO provided Internet via the PPC-6700, but there is an extra charge? Am I correct? If so, do you have know what this service is called? Sprint tech support and sales wasn't much help.
