I got suckered into the marketing of AT&T's Pocket Net service cuz I wanted real time traffic info mostly. Its LOUSY!!!! I think that's the most accurate word I'd be allowed to use here ;-)They claim the Premium service is better, but I'm not getting suckered into giving them more money when it doesn't work worth a darn as it is. Only about 1 of 3 times I try to connect does it succeed. Then it supposedly lets you save bookmark "favorites" after you wade thru layers of menus so you don't have to do that again. But when you go back to use the saved bookmark, it says its only available with the Premium service! What a racket!I've waded thru the layers of menus to try to get traffic reports and then they've been totally inaccurate -- they seem to only be updated every hour or so, and the info was incomplete to boot! I tried going to the web site to set "My Routes" so I could get the info I needed, but that is also poorly implemented and didn't work.I tried it for movie times and stock quotes and ran into similar problems.I don't know about the other services, but AT&T's i-net service is NOT ready!!!! Don't be a fool like me and get suckered into a contract for vaporware! Save your money, get a regular cell phone (the Pocket Net Ericsson phone is also lousy quality), and let me know if the PalmVII net access is any better.
