Verizon Wireless has this nifty service called Mobile Office, which allows you to use your cell phone as a 14.4 kbps wireless modem for your computer?at no extra charge. Both Verizon and Motorola sell “data kits” which contain everything you need. Unfortunately, 1) they cost $70-80, and 2) they don’t support Mac OS X. So I wrote a how-to document that describes how I got it to work on Mac OS X, with only a $19 cable.

Thanks, John! Got your own phone tip? Post it to the Newswire.
