What does this mean?

by tj1182 / June 22, 2008 11:12 AM PDT

I'm looking to buy the Palm Centro and I'm picking out my plan and got stumped.

There's an option for "Data Connect" that says either PDA personal or PDA personal add-on with CV with tethering. The one with tethering has 5GB personal email mobile browsing.

Does this mean the one with tethering I can access email and the web and PDA personal I won't be able to?

I want to understand this before I get into any contract.

Thanks.

The second plan allows you to use the device like a wireless modem for a computer.

How many sites did you post the same question? Just found it Howard Forums.

Tethering

Tethering is a tricky thing, it just a little faster than dial up. so think about how much you are going to use it before you try it.

also, it may be good to see what your provider's rules are for turning services on and off. ATT lets me turn it on today and off tomorrow.

kind of nice, I'm just prorated for the day i used the service.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
