Hi, thanks for all the great tips! Anyway, I just got rid of my landline and I want to connect my phone to my fax machine to make a fax and my laptop to browse the internet when I am on business trips. I purchased a USB cable for my phone (a Motorola v220 from Cingular). I just want to use the laptop to connect to the cell phone and dial into a dial-up service provider (my work's server). Is this possible? How do I go about doing this? THANKS FOR ANY HELP YOU CAN PROVIDE! PS: My worry is that I don't wanted to be charged $$$ to connect to the internet. I've heard horror stories of people getting $500 bills.
