RE: The internet answer... part 2!

John,
I just got the Navionics app for my android incredible. I can't believe you get so much for 12 bucks. Easy to use too.
My Raymarine R80 chart plotter came with a manual that's thicker than my airline issued pilot hand book. Guess which GPS I'll use first.

RE: The internet answer... part 2!

That incredible is the EVOs sister phone on Verizon. Great phone!!! The next android update should allow you to use your phone as a wifi hotspot(it will be native to the OS...2.2). Verizon is more protective of their products than Sprint. It will interesting to see how the carriers will "protect" their revenue stream from wifi tethering. Right now, Sprint charges 30 bucks a month for that feature on the EVO(mine is rooted so I don't pay). Right now Motorola has a self destruct feature on their new Droid X that bricks the phone if you try to root it. That is their answer. Anyway, long story short, wifi tethering should be available on your Incredible in the very near future whether you have to pay extra or not.

Verizon Droid X will charge $20/month for up to 3 gig wi-fi hotspot use. This is the first smart phone I've been interested. I can get rid of my $60/month aircard.

The internet answer... part 2!

Keith, you need to consider jumping carriers. Sprint does not have any data caps. YOU...that means you, Keith E. in particular, could easily burn up 3 gigs of data in no time with as much photo uploading as you do....not to mention any of your other internet activity. I think Verizon charges $50 a gig after that....not cheap. Anyway. *The wifi hotspot on my EVO has been flawless...and it absolutely smokes when it is on 4G!

JD, it is good that the court saw it this way...IMHO. You buy a piece of hardware and you should be able to use it any way you see fit....simple as that. I think that is where the court is coming from.
