Hi Abhaijith!I had GPRS connection as it was a necessity for me.Lap tops are costly and being a teacher it would look akward if I walk arounf with it in the school campus.But with a mobile its different.I can keep it in my small handbag.Why do I need GPRS connection?Because I dabble with shares and would like to know the rates of the shares as I do intraday trading.Idea was charging only 9 rs a day for the unlimited usage and the speed too was resonable.

I think it's a great technological development. What easier way is there to go online when you are on the go than through a device you carry around all the time anyway, your phone?! It really makes accessing the Internet very convenient. Still, I much prefer to use a real computer to go online...mobile phones are good for when you're away from home, but at home the computer is still king!

Well, i believe u r an indian(so am i ). Here we dont EDGE or 3G so its pretty disappointing we have to live with GPRS which is irritatingly slow. I do have GPRS on my cellphone. The speed is OK as long as you are surfing net through cellphone but if you intend to use it on ur PC, u end up getting frustated because speed is really slow(obviously because things in cellphone occupy less space so get loaded easily). So if u r user who sits at home and surfs i would suggest u to go for broadband connection as it is much faster and cheaper option. PS: Kudos to Sheila Dixit we r expecting 3G in a month or 2

i used to have a bad impression about internet in mobile phones. i used to think that if i could access the net through a laptop, why would i need a phone with internet? in other words, i had no use for it in the past. Recently though, i am beginning to see a need for it. i am an online writer and sometimes i need a quick look at my sites when i am away and i don't have a laptop with me. mobile internet is a convenient way to look at what i need briefly. maybe in the near future i'll get a mobile phone that can access the net
