Pretty cool, but the real question is this. If I got an iPhone could I get a skype plugin and then never use the actual phone? Or would the wifi always be connected and I could use all the net based plugins for it as well?

AT&T sucks. LMAO

This is not quite accurate this is talking about the WiMax Technology not Wi-Fi.

Sprint has Partnered with Clearwire to use their WiMax to upgrade the sprint network to 4g.

Your iphone will not work with that setup

Sorry

That was my question.

If an ap were made could it be possible?

If it's possible with an ap, I'm going to have one made and sell it for about $10-$50 a pop. I'd be RICH either selling the ap or AT&T buying me out. LMAO

Yes it is possible with an AP - at the very least with a ipod touch too..

sprint just came out with an AP in your pocket called the MiFi - its tiny and is an AP anywhere

Even better, get a Sprint mifi on the cheap, and it'd be good everywhere. Then you get an iphone and keep the mifi in your pocket. LMAO

Damn the Sprint haters. This is sweet.

I might be biased cause I get it all for $20 a month.

Now they sent me an Instinct for free.

Sweet!

And live in ATL.
