Wireless Internet Card for Cell Phone?

by jijo272 / November 30, 2009 11:32 PM PST

My son and his wife don't have a land line, and don't want to hook up to the internet by a service like ATT, etc.

Is there any way they can access the internet with a prepaid card (like cell phones)?

Thanks for any help. I thought I could get them a prepaid card for Christmas.

Prepaid internet is still pricey. Read to get an idea about the costs.

TETHERING on pre-paid phones is also pricey.

Maybe they should look at some netbook and going to the library when they need access?

Thank you for the information. I'm going to research and see if it's worth it.

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?
