I have worked with many mobile phones in my line of work. But never once did it occur to me to try and post discussions from my mobile phone! I tell you, a full qwerty keyboard on a mobile is a god send! To day is he first day I am hammering out discussions from my mobile while waiting for seminars to begin! And I am having a whale of a time doing it! So many benefits for being able to post on the move! For one, whatever comes to mind, I can post immediately without forgetting, which I usually do before. Cos I will usually tell myself hat I will post what's on my mind later when I get to a PC. And then jotting down my idea on some scraps that I find (which I usually lose by the time I get home), I can never really quite remember what is it I wanted to post by the time I get home! The othe hing I like about posting on the move? I get to make money while waiting! No waste of time idling while I wait for something! It is just sweet! How about you? Do you like to post on the move? Can you think of any other benefits of having the ability to post on the move?

I used to have qwerty keyboard on the older model phone I used. But that one really requires petite fingers to hammer out any messages. It is the newer models that offer wider spaced qwerty that makes posting discussions a breeze. I sure hope my post rate will increase now that I found I can type so much faster on the new handphone I am using! SWEET!

Yeah, depending on the model of blackberry, it could be a pain to type out any messages on them. The Nokia E71 is quite good for typing. The iPhone is just sweet due to the intuitive spelling replacements for wrongly typed words. The HTC is another that is worth looking at.

And the best part of it is, you can just log on to hotspots that are available. And it is all free. At least, in my part of town, it is! And with a large screen and a qwerty keyboard, it is just sweet! Now, whenever I got a long period of waiting time, I know just what to do to fill in the gap.

if you are using a laptop, yes, that is something one has to be careful of. Using a mobile phone, it is less prone to such attacks. But caution is still key to protecting yourself when using public domain to surf the web.

I would love to post a discussion using mobile phone but as I need to pay more, I stop myself from taking part in discussions from the mobile phone. But some of my friends are very mcuh obsessed with the net that wherever they go, they carry a mobile phone with Internet facility or a lap top with wifi net connection along with them as they feel that they and Internet are inseperable. That is the height of addictions I suppose.

If carrying around a device that is internet capable is a form of addiction, then I can be considered as one of those addicts you mentioned. I guess with so much technology around, it is only natural that you will want to use it whenever you are free. And trust me, in today's world, there are lots of waiting to be done. From waiting for the bus, to waiting to be served, to waiting to withdraw money from the cash machine... the list is endless. And with the opportunity to post on mylot to make productive use of those waiting times, it is just too sweet a deal to give up on.

i first started posting on mylot using a mobile phone was last year. that was when i first got my apple iphone. i was checking my emails on the phone when i saw the mylot digest. i thought to myself, 'why not post on mylot'. i think i actually mentioned it in my post that i was using my mobile phone. it's really convenient because i don't have to wait till i get home. furthermore, there will always be distractions at home that causes me to not be able to log onto mylot. so nowadays, most of my postings are actually made from my mobile phone. the only thing about posting from mobile phone is the data charges. a data plan is a must, or else the phone bill will be a huge shocker.

Yeah... exactly what I did. I was waiting for the seminar to start. Due to a delay, I had half an hour on my hand. Then I tried posting cos I got nothing else to do. Boy, was I amazed at the intuitive responses of the iphone qwerty when I was typing out my postings. It was a fantastic discovery! And I just cannot stop! The sweet thing is, I can post whenever I have a thought about a topic that is worth discussing. No need to wait till I get home to a computer! Heh heh...

I don't post on the move but it definatly has it's upside. I could post during my breaks at work or if I were waiting somwhere with nothing to do anyway. I'm thinking it could have a lot of perks indeed.

Yeah... and when I found out that I can hammer out a discussion within 10 mins on my handphone, I was amazed. Cost with the older models, I usually take half an hour or more. And by the time I am finished, I am exhausted. If the discussion is posted, it is still okay. It is when the posting encounter errors, that you will cry. Cos all that effort in he past half hour would have been wasted. That is why, previously, I am not keen to post via my handphone. Now, I found a new love in my handphone! And boy am I gonna have a whale of a time using it too!

It could also be your handset. Internet sites these days have a lot of scripts embedded in them. And if your handset is using a browser that does not support scripts, you are pretty limited in your surfing experience on the handsets. If you are using the newer 3G or 3.5G handsets, the browser that came with the handset is pretty good at handling scripts in websites. Otherwise, you can consider downloading and installing 3rd party browsers for your handset.

Yes I also like that if I can access Internet when I moving, but it need more extra money to pay the bill. So I prefer to access internet and post to myLot in my house with the internet line or at the hotspot area.

Where I am, there are hotspots where you can logon to for free. The other is the huge data plans that comes with the handsets you purchase that you can use while on the move. I am starting to like mobile surfing more and more each day. And with speeds increasing, and price plan going cheaper due to competition between the telco service providers, it is getting easier to go online from the handset!
