You have one or more addresses and email to check your email to receive or send emails to your correspondents? You also like to surf the web?
This is not a problem at home, where you have a Mac connected to the Internet. But what do you do if you're on the road several days, or if you are away from your home during the day, but you must urgently receive or send an email, or consult a website?
Sure, you can go in a "cafe" you connect to a WiFi hotspot, or even access to any computer connected to the Net (office or a friend) to consult and possibly send email, and surf on the web. But this is not always possible and not always pleasant either. What would you receive your email, send, browse the web from your laptop while lying quietly on the bed in your hotel room, where from any other place (car, home an individual, office etc ...)
Of course, it must already have a laptop ( "iBook", "PowerBook", "MacBook" or "MacBook Pro"), which is not necessarily the case for everyone, but if you have a Mac laptop, this trick will no doubt be of interest at the highest point because you can surf the net from almost anywhere ... Wireless!
here two solutions:
a) A connection GPRS / Bluetooth using your phone as a modem:
With the GPRS connection you can surf the Net from your laptop and using your mobile phone at a speed quite honorable of 40 kb / s (in theory at least), which is much more than just a GSM modem connection of 9.6 Mb / s
b) The solution of the 3G + key:
You can buy from your mobile preferred key 3G + that allows you to connect to the Internet using the network as "fast" available at your location (3G +, 3G, Edge, GPRS). If you are always on the go you can take out a subscription, or you can simply buy "pass login" to suit your needs.
If you log in 3G +, you can surf at a rate equivalent to 512 kb / s, which is the level of ADSL!
For me, having long used the first solution, I recently opted for a 3G + key that actually allows me to enjoy a connection speed not negligible, and an exceptional ease of use. This solution is quite reliable, even if the price is still high.
For the solution "a":
- An Apple computer running OS X Leopard.
- A Bluetooth USB Adapter "(unless your computer is already Bluetooth technology, as is the case with recent Apple laptops).
- A GPRS compatible mobile phone / Bluetooth which will serve as a wireless modem.
- A subscription to your mobile operator (here eg.Orange Telecoms) gives you access to GPRS .
For the solution "b":
- An Apple computer running OS X LEOPARD
- A key 3G + (with or without subscription to a mobile operator).
Note: For this , I used a Powerbook G4 1.5 Ghz running OS X Leopard, the Sony-Ericsson W300i, and my subscription "Orange Pro" for a solution "a".I used a 3G + key ICON 225 Orange (subscription) for the solution "b".
