As we have been traveling to the Palm Springs are about once a month as my wife's grandfather goes through cancer treatment, we have been staying in condos in the area. The condos allow us to have a "regular" schedule for the kids bed time.
One thing about condos compared to hotel room, is that they don't tend to offer "high speed" internet access. Since I want to be able to continue to work while there, I was looking into ways that I could high speed access.
First, I looked into Verizon's BroadbandAccess. For $59.99 a month, you can get unlimited access to 400 - 700 kbps download speed. The main reason that I had with this was that they will only give you access if you sign up for a two year contract. I would be willing to pay the $59.99, if I would only have to pay for it on the months that I use it.
I then found this page that describes how to set up my E815 as a bluetooth modem. The instructions worked very well. I had to enabled V Cast (I could have enabled just Mobile Web, but the minutes used by the data calls would have been charged against my allocation.)
Also, when I told the Verizon support representative what I wanted to do, they said that it wouldn't work. They stated that the only thing that would do what I want is one of their BlackBerry devices.
When connected to the phone Internet Connect reports the connection speed as 230400 bps.
When I ran a speed test at broadbandreports.com, I get a download speed of 64 kbps.
