    That's what I have, and what I did. Asked them to add the 1XPPX
    feature to my plan. (That's the code in the NYC market - YMMV).

    >No extra cost?


    Nope.

    > They won't give me some excuse why it can't be done?


    They'll give you dozens, most likely, unless you know the feature code
    in your market and just ask them to add that feature - without even
    telling them what it's for.

    It can. If you get the run-around, you have to go to a Verizon store
    and "socially engineer" the situation. It took me about 4 hours.

    I tried tonight for "NA-MOU", but she did not see the feature listed. The
    rep asked if it was to connect a laptop to the cell, so I said no. I said
    it was to speed up data transfer when connecting to the web. I will try
    again with "YMMV" and "1XPPX". Thanks again.

    That's what I did and have been using it for over a year (yes, it was called
    express network MOU then, and I had to talk to a whole bunch of CS's before
    they looked it up and added it).

    It was a mobile office setting, not a phone setting. (basically to tell MO
    to use packet switching when available)

    I've been poking around for several hours now and can't figure out just
    what the "1x" foo means. Could someone enlighten me, please? I don't
    expect to try to browse the web on the phone itself, but do want to
    have the ability to do general internet stuff (eg., SSH) via the phone
    on my laptop.

    I got Samsung 530's a couple of days ago, one for me and one for my wife.
    I didn't care for the 530 so I just now exchanged it for a VX6000. The
    LG doesn't get a signal as well at my house so I'm looking at an external
    antenna, eg. the "Titanium booster antenna" sold for $12.95 at
    yescomusa.com.
