Cell phone to laptop connectivity

By erniekcet ·
I have a laptop and the Ericsson R289lx cell phone with RS232 connector. Do I need to upgrade my AT&T Digital One plan in order to send/receive data on my laptop via the cell phone?

What did your ISP say?

The phone is capable of a 19.2k data connection.

You need to talk to AT&T about your plan.

If you are going to use the phone as a data access direct. All you do is dial the ISP's dialin number.

The phone is dialing the access number like you home phone would.

You might want to look at the new broadband services that utilize a dedicated card for the pcmcia slot.
