I prefer the Internet on my computer rather than my phone. The computer has a bigger screen where you can see more and I find it alot faster than my phone. I know your phone maybe more conveint when traveling but it has a small screen and you only can go to certain websites. The websites don't show you the whole site and you are limited to what you can do on a phone compared to a computer. Phones can do alot but a computer can do alot more. That is what I am looking for is alot more. I want to be able to everything and not be limited to what I can can't do. Thus something to think about when thinking about internet on your phone.

Hey, I actually prefer the Internet on my computer rather than my phone, this is because on a phone, you can't really type that fast or anything like that, the screen is also too small to do your everyday things anyway. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

i'd prefer internet on my computer. i'd be able to do a lot of things on my computer than on my phone though i wouldn't hesitate to use the internet on my phone. if i really need to access the internet and there's no computer around, that's the only time that i use the internet on my phone.

I don't like to surf internet on mobile. I like to surf internet on computer or laptop only. On mobiles everything becomes little complicated, no images or not clear images. difficult to type quickly. Hard to do multitasking. So I am not surfing internet from mobile, even it is free from some service providers but still I am avoiding it.

I have both and I have to admit that the computer is way better. Like you said it is faster and there is more you can do and the bigger screen is always a plus. However, I like having it on my phone for when I am at an office waiting for an appointment or something. It came in really handy last night when I was eating out with some friends and a football game came on...I dont watch football at all so I just surfed the web while they finished the game.

Using the Internet on my computer is better than my phone, but I can still do almost everything I want using my iPhone when I am not able to use my computer.

If time and space allows, i do not think people would prefer internet on phone. Personally, i would stick to internet on computer. The busy people can use the time on road to browse for latest news, stock information, e-books, etc.

Well, I always prefer internet on my computer rather than on my phone considering that in the computer it is much easier to browse and type as well as do many other things. While in the phone you have a small screen and somehow it is quite difficult to browse. When I am in a hurry though, I check my emails through my phone, other than that, I use my computer for internet.

I prefer internet on my computer, because on PC having wide screen and I can see everything clearly, in small screen that enjoyment we don't get. As well as internet on PC is very cheap than mobile. Also mobile reqd clear signals and take more time to download. But when you travel that time mobile internet is must to find out our railway booking status. or important mail.

i completely agree with your say. It may be convinient but its not user friendly. Browsing the net using you computer is so much more better than using the mobile. One reason is the smaller screen display and another reason may be the speed of the server. You may have your works delayed. I am preety sure no one would want to do work slow and just look at a screen while it takes a longer time to download. This I personally find using the computer is a better choice to browse online. Maybe in cases where we need to find something urgently and its hard to hit the cybercafe, it will be very much helpful to have an internet in our mobile

I do not have a cell phone that can be used to reach the internet. I prefer to have a computer to access the internet anyway. I just use my cell phone for texting only. I hate talking on the phone.

I don't have internet capability on my phone, but I do on other devices such as my Wii and Nintendo DSi, and I have to say I definitely prefer it on my computer. While I do enjoy the portability of mobile devices, they're still a pain and I'd much rather use the internet on my laptop rather than anything else.

Most of the times, I prefer connecting to internet on my computer. When I am travelling, I use my mobile in case I need to search something. In mobile phone, you can not open any attachments and you cannot read them if they are not supported on the phone. Even if they open it takes lot of time to read and adjust to that samll format.

My husband and I decided to try using the internet on his phone and honestly, we both absolutely hated it. It was very overpriced, it loaded insanely slow, websites were limited and looked like absolute crap! I definitely prefer to have the internet on my computer, because my screen is over 20 inches, I can use the keyboard instead of desperately attempting to find the right buttons on the cell phone, and it is way easier to figure out. I couldn't figure out how to use the buttons on the phone for the internet, and it got me so confused I gave up and just got internet for our computer lol. I don't need internet outside of our home anyways, but we have a USB plugin so it's all good :P

I prefer the internet on my computer as there is a much bigger screen and I am able to do more than one task at a time.

On computer as the most people do.It's inconvenient to use cell for net purpose.But if pc or laptop is not available in some circumstances,cell is obviously protects the purpose.

I like my internet to be on my computer, because like y ou said the bigger screen, and it's unlimited. The only time I would actually use my phone as a internet provider, i swhen I have to be in my car for long periods of time, ro if I go someplace for a vacation or something like that where they do not give you internet service.
