mobile heaven : USB data cable

Ok, so maybe I've been living under a rock for the past while, but I've just recently picked up a USB data cable for my cell phone. This little beauty allows me to connect it via USB to my laptop computer and then use my Sprint PCS Vision package web connectivity via a Sprint software app to give me a connection to the internet. That's right - I can browse the net on my laptop anywhere that I can get a Sprint PCS signal. This is hot! I was stuck in traffic the other day, was able to hop on my laptop, connect the phone, connect to the net and find an alternate route which saved me not only time, but my sanity as well.

Of course, you shouldn't take advantage of this back door option for downloading large files as Sprint's policy says that it can close your account etc. But I do enjoy having the option and flexibility of actually using my web functions on my phone... seeing as I would never browse the web using my phone browser.

You can grab the cable here.
