I currently have Cingular's $39.99 PDA Connect Unlimited package, which provides unlimited internet access (including using the phone as a modem). After looking around this forum, I get the feeling that I can get all this for $19.99 a month, with the MediaNet Unlimited plan. Is this correct?
Do we have anyone here who made the switch that I am contemplating (from PDA Connect Unlimited to MediaNet Unlimited)? Can you please confirm whether you were assessed any additional charges for access after the switch? Thanks for helping me avoid potential $300 bills for GPRS/EDGE use!
If you are using a regular smartphone (SMT 5600, MPx220, Cingular 2125) then yes, you can use the $19.99 unlimited MEdia Net plan. Unfortunatly if you are a PPC/Treo user then you are stuck on the PDA Connect plan.
With MEdia Net as well as PDA Connect you are able to use your phone as a modem. It's really all based off what kind of advice you have.

I have the $19.99 unlimited Media Net.
My current setup:
Phone: Evil Nasty cruddy MPX220
PDA: My rocking HX4700 - works flawless for me - dont know what the whiners are doing
I connect via BT with the dumb manual connect string since, again, Moto messed up on the MPX220. But I get GPRS speeds to the PDA and no problems with billing. I run mail, PIE, Netfront, Avantgo, RSS etc through it, just like a regular wifi connection, everything works, albeit slower.
And, as Opti said, if you are on a PPC-Phone Edition all bets are off. But, since this is SMARTPHONE thoughts and not POCKETPC Thoughts - I assumed you have a SP not a PPC-PE
