    Travelhappy has a great piece about just how easy it can be to get online with a cellphone in Thailand without needing to troll down to the local games centre and bully a ten-year old off a games-terminal.

    Grab a phone, local sim, make a couple of calls and you're set -- or so he says anyway.

    Read the full up and down, left and right on getting online with a mobile phone in Thailand.

    Does anyone have any more information about this device. I am rather naive about this technology. I want to be able to access the internet from my netbook while in Thailand. I have an older AT&T cellphone without inexpensive internet access. I am guessing that I need to buy a cheap phone and sim card with a pre-paid card then hook this Sierra AirCard to it my computer?????

    I just bought a thumb drive yesterday. You put the sim card in your phone to activate it, then take it out and put it in the thumb drive. Stick it in the usb port and it takes care of itself. It has to be simple or I wouldn't have been able to do it. LOL Rather expensive at 3290 baht but comes with 150 hours of time and then you reload with a call. Haven't played with it to much yet so don't know everything.
