Re: [newtech-1] Anyone Used a SD WiFi Card

I'm curious if you, or anyone on the list, have tried to upgrade your 6700 to WM6 with one of the sets floating around out there? I was thinking about doing it this weekend. 

I've been very happy with the EVDO access speeds. I mostly use the phone as a go-anywhere modem. Phone-wise its passable. Its not clear if the WM6 upgrade will make tethered use visible to Sprint (it isn't with the 6700 on WM5).

The WiFi portion of the phone seems to be broken, it can't find a signal anyway. I've used it before and it wasn't bad when I could connect. But the switchover is a pain.

CE5.0 sucks.

I tried early on to switch from EVDO<->Wifi but not only is it painful to do regularly but its painful to do on CE5.0 period.  I stop completely using wifi on my phone purely bc it takes forever to latch onto a network. Not an easy nor automatic process although i guess someone could code an app to do just that whenever you come into a wifi network.

Also can't use wifi and phone at the same time.

I find the EVDO access on my Sprint to be absolutely superior to wifi.

I can get about[masked]kbits using it as a modem as well... even through bluetooth.

so unless you plan on using it a lot as wifi, the CE5.0 or any Microsoft crap isn't worth the pain in my humble opinion.

Again unless someone takes the time and the effort to write something more efficient and alternative to WM5.0 like http://pointui.com

can't WAIT for iPhone with 3G.....

I am thinking of getting a WiFi SD Card for my phone running Windows Mobile 5.0. Has anyone deployed and found the results satisfactory using a SD WiFi Card or it is not worth the money to spend on such a device and better to surf using the carrier network, I do have a data plan and that is aid for and fine.Just wonder if it is beneficial and more importantly does one get better speeds.
