Just having facebook and twitter on my phone is blowing my mind, let alone the music. Sad, I know.

I use mine for tethering so I can go online through my phone.

Before when I was on 3g my phone would test around 7-8mps and teathering would be like 1-3mps...

Now on 4G I am connecting at 28mps and can tether connect on the pc at about 20-24... I have yet to get really close to a tower.

Don't some of the new GM vehicles have this tethering ability? Which is basically just wifi in your vehicle, I guess.

Yeah, I know that the 2011 Duramax has wifi. I am sure that it is in other models.

Is that through OnStar, or some other carrier I wonder?

I'm sure I could look it up on that internet thing, but why do that when we can discuss here?!?!

And do any of the new Nox's have this option?

Humm

I think that if you really need it then it might be worth it.

That is not near as expensive as I expected. Looks like a good deal if you need such things.

The droid still working good ? Thinking of switching my iphone... I hate this phone... no battery life, always freezing, slow as hell... had bad experience in the past with android phone but the new version (jellybean) seems to work great.

My wife is using it now. It is a much better phone since it is on ICS.

I currently have the Motorola Droid RAZR maxx HD. Let me tell you, jellybean is awesome! The battery life is amazing! I've gone 2.5-3 days without a charge.
