You have to pay a monthly fee to use it, am I correct? I would love to do this if it ever goes to, say, half the current fee.

Yah, just checked it out for a 4wk project I'm doing this summer. It's $149 for the Kynocera card and 1-year contract, plus $60/mo for unlimited service.

Is there any way to make these cards work with a desktop? I investigated this a couple months ago for my brother-in-law who lives in the boonies. Is there some kind of a reader you could use with this. I gave up looking the last time, but maybe I wasn't using the right search terms.

Just what I am looking for, but what I really need a is a version that will work in my G5.

If I can find that, my boss will foot the bill for it. Part of the NY office taking over our IT dept. here on the left coast.

if your brother is in the boonies, it's unlikely there would be broadband wireless there. it's different than wireless phone service.
He might have access to 1xRTT service. That'll give you between 30k and 60k, depending on a lot of variables.
That could be done with any modern cell phones that supports the protocol.
an LG VX7000 or 8000 are among the VZW phones that do it. Then it's just a USB card to connect.

Doesn't the MacBook Pro have a PC-card slot?

A distant uncle of sorts had this Verizon service at a family gathering a while back. He wasn't up on it technically to answer any of my questions, but it appeared as though it dialed up like a regular cell phone. Had it's own number and everything. He got it because he's a truck driver and could use it anywhere, hence my assumption. Like I said though, he didn't know anything about it technically and hadn't had it long enough to put it through it's paces.

Thanks for clarifying!

If the Verizon signal is usable by cell phones, then you can use the wireless broadband, same coverage area.
