I'm going to be traveling a fair amount in the US, Britain and France over the next several years. A good part of that time I'll be in places where I cannot count on a Wifi connection for my laptop. I'd like to see if there are ways of making my Motorola L6 work for me, or if that doesn't work I'd like advice on the best way to achieve my goals.
Data: - I'd like to be able to connect my Lenovo 3000 V100 laptop to the web via the phone for EMail etc. If I understand things correctly this is called tethering in the mobile world.
Daily EMail checks - some of which probably will have significant attachments
NOT - major downloads of programs etc.
Perhaps some photo uploading to Flickr
I'd appreciate suggestions on the following:
1) Should I be able to do this with my existing unlocked Motorola L6?
2) Which Carriers make sense- Particularly in the UK and France - I'll only be there for less than a month each time so availability is possibly a real issue. I'm hoping that I can get the data service for about $60/month.
Thanks for any thoughts
