    Personally I'm a fan of USB Modem. Works on both PC and Mac.

    w0w. I have never found a program that allows a Treo smartphone to work via Mac with USB. Mac OS X has native support for bluetooth modems, but USB would be so much better!

    Anyone know if this works with T-MobileWeb?

    It's kind of a stupid term for what it is. But it means quite literally to wire your phone to a laptop for the purpose of using it as a modem.
    So I guess the answer is accessing the internet from a computer/laptop via a data cable (or bluetooth.) But bluetooth is often referred to as "DUN" (Dial-up networking.)
    Same thing though.

    I use bluetooth for this. I set up a Standard Modem over Bluetooth (COM4) and it works great. I think I went to the Cingular site and they had all the settings for the 680 that were needed on the PC. I just turn on Bluetooth on by the PC and Treo and click Connect. A few seconds later I have signed in and working. I get good connection speed also. No need for cables or anything special on the Treo, and the standard connection progrems in XP.
