    I could pretty much ditch my cable ISP and just use Klink through my phone, save a whopping thirty bucks a month. I've tethered-only before, but exceeded the original 5GB limit; spending the rest of the month on2G is not fun.

    I went to the local Walmart and they new nothing about this new Straight Talk plan that's posted right on the website.

    Is my PIN number posted on that little card that came with the phone?

    Figured out how to change my plan without needing the PIN, so now I'm tethering full-time, thanks to Kate's discovery. If I can stay well in-bounds for a month or two, I'm cutting off my ISP.

    Nope. It seems that normal surfing uses about 300MB per day. 300 x 30 = 9000, or 9GB. That's just cutting it too fine to save thirty bucks a month. Oh well, at least I have a backup when my ISP crashes.
