Sony Ericsson W890i or W910i

Postby Dark_Fire » Sun Jun 29, 2008 8:28 am


Im gonne buy myself the Sony Ericsson W890i or W910i. Now, you guys could help me decide if you want. :P But the main thing I wanne know is can I go online with it through Mint or do I need a windows PC to connect?

I went through a few forums and so far I cant seem to find any drivers for cell phones. Can anyone help me with the advantages and disadvantages of cell phones and Sony Ericsson in spesific? What can I do and what cant I.

I really wanne go online through it. Thats the main purpose im buying it. I have 4 PC's so I could install windows on one if it comes to that. But I would like to try it on Linux. (No im not THAT rich. One PC I bought myself, the other is someone I know's. It got struck by lightning, they gave it to me and I fixed it. The other one is my dad's OLD laptop. And the last one is a REALLY OLD laptop. about 300MHz. :P )

hehe, anyway. Any ideas?

I have a w700i (this is gprs) and I have not been able to find a way to use it under linux, but I can under XP
There is a nice post about a cell phone as a modem here
(As you see rememberign bits and pieces helps :))
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
