If you mean wireless, in a word "no". They are not there yet with the technology/networks. Downloading anything is slooowww and what's there is limited. In certain large cities there are high speed networks but it is limited and very expensive. The new Pocket PC net phone devices look promising, sprint offers a good one. Maybe in a few years.

Internet while in motion

For over a year, I've tried the SprintPCS version (Cellphone with the laptop puter).
This service works best as long as you're within their service area.
I've had no experiences using it while "in roaming" outside of my service plan's area (roaming charges rates??).
The system is very simple to install and, to use. You do have to upgrade your cellphone options with Sprint. In addition to that, there's a package to purchase which contains the software and connection cable. The software is simple to load and, the cable provides hook up between your laptop/cellphone.There is a per minute charge for this internet service(which is abt 19k connection speed). Last I checked, it was around .35 ct per min. BTW, the anytime minutes or weekend/night time rates don't cover this connection time.
There are better ways yet coming to do this, just keep an eye on the G3 world. NEC, for example, is already promoting it's version of a major infrastructure core, that it has developed.
In closing, I have to say.."It was interesting and, at the time kewl" But, I do find myself using the laptop for other functions now.
ciao

Dialing for AOL

I guess AOL is the way to go then - I have a friend who's the road manager for a band, and he uses it when touring. I know finding a phone will be a pain...

Here's wishing all the camp spots had internet hookups!! (I'm SUCH a geek...)

AOL works

AOL does work.
I did find that, if you're outside of their normal coverage for local dialup, you can use the 800 number but..be aware that they charge 6.00$ per hour.(last time I used it)
I know the feeling..lol
But to be honest, lately..when on vacation..I don't miss it.. The same can be said for the TV and, newspapers.
ciao

Many campgrounds are now offering a local shared phone jack for email and shaort surfing sessions, usally for free. Of course you will need a local number or an 800 number.

I have found if I ask there is one stuck in some corner of one of the campground buildings. I used to use Time Warner dialup ( I have Roadrunner at work and home) but now they want $10.00 a month extra for the capibility so I will have to go another route.
