One thing that still applies is that is that it is just browsing, apps might not work.
nice if you don't care about apps though.

have u tried their service?

from what I've read, it is 3g, BUT and this could be a big thing to certain people it will only work to apps that will accept the proxy.

a small subset will also work (like gmail) due to the fact it is included
push notifications will also not work. I'l update this post as I get info.

i dont get by what u said it could work for certain ppl..? is internet browsing limited to certain providers..? well in any case no harm in trying as there is no contract as such and max u will be losing 25$ for 1 month subs

let me elaborate, for you to be able to access the "web browsing" your data MUST go through a proxy.
since most apps don't use the proxy (on the iphone) it's iffy, I don't know about android, but I know windows mobile (6) should use the proxy universally.

probably, as if your access without using the proxy it will fail, I'm reading some pages back trying to get info.

a quick list for iphone users (quoted from a forum and seems consistent with reports)

"Safari plus any browser I've tried with the exception of Omni
-680 News, FOX News, CNN News (Video works too)
-Weather apps (all of them)
-Maps
-Navigon GPS
-Yahoo Messenger
-Twitter (Twitter App, Tweetie, and Echophon)
-YouTube (Only workis on videos under 2 minutes in length)
reasoning apperently being due to the fact it wants to buffer it and it exceeds the limit (I don't know it).
-App Store (Only able to download apps under 2MB)"
--magicwater (op)
linky: http://www.speakoutwireless.ca/speak/te ... t/page-18/
as I said it's wonky, some people are getting great speeds, others.... not so much
someone was downloading a podcast that was over 100mb somehow I have no idea how but they apparently did.

there is a 72 hour grace period so if you want to test and you don't like it you can cancel and not pay the fee for the brower.

simply put: If you just want to browse the web, it should work fine, video is iffy, apps are iffy, if you think you can live with the restrictions it's worth a shot.

Speakout (same network same company) , you will need to figure how to enter the settings on your own (I don't believe the reps can support unofficial devices). make sure to confirm the grace period also applies, the BB would have to be unlocked I believe. I'l take a look and see if I can find out how to do it on a BB.
