    do you use verizons data at all? if not then call or emial them and have them out a data block on your number.
    if yes, then go to hacks section and look for the hack that will password protect your data so you will know when your using it

    Wifi card installation

    Hey can someone walk me through all the steps of installing the wifi card? i've been on the computer for 2 hours trying to install it with no success. this is getting frustrating. i downloaded two different .cab files online and tried them. one of them failed and one installed successfully, but i still don't see anything that has to do with wifi. Help would be MUCH MUCH appreciated.

    thanks

    Which Card did you get?

    ===============================================
    You have a Q9m...Right? Spectec card for Q9m is SDW-822.(wlan 802.11 b) Is that the one you have? If so I have the correct Driver Cab. It's wlan11b_wm60.CAB. I can post a link to it in my files I think. Just let me know.

    Here is a link

    ======================================================
    Here is the link to the Driver that works on my Q9m. Always pick install to device when installing drivers. Settings/Connections/Wi-Fi Power settings allows you to set time out. With the right driver and card it should auto start, search prompt to enter your wifi link code or connect to an unsecure link.

    That's kinda strange.

    Hi. They make a SDW-822 card specifically for the Q9m/Q9c. The one in the link above is NOT that card. Has anyone got that one to work in a Q9 smart phone? I ordered the non-specific card from the link above (it is still in shipping) and then found out about the specific sdw-822 wifi card for the Q9 series. Will I have to return that card to buyGPS or can I get the standard card to work just as well? Is it just a driver issue? Any help would be appreciated.

    I a card setup on my phone - it works, but it is really slow, and I have a hard time picking up networks (I'll have to walk to my router for it to notice it - then I am ok - but if I try to connect from another room, it won't work).

    I also tried to connect at BW3s - but couldn't find the network - anyone else notice this?

    correction:
    the link i posted IS a sdw822.
    scroll down and look under product details and then at item model number and it clearly says "spectec_sdw822"
    it will work fine in your Q9m

    ===============================Use active sync place the cab anywhere you want on phone. Click on it to install. Always choose device for install location on drivers. Should be it. Place wifi card in slot. should auto start. Follow instructions to conect to your secure network or an unsecure.

    Manbat,
    shifting gears a little bit, what websites or types of websites do you find most useful on your Q9m? If I got a wifi card, I'd probably be using it to get directions (if mapquest works with the small screen).

    Any sites that you wish worked better with a mobile device?
