    I know on my cell phone plan, I can get a data package that includes internet access for laptop, etc. Think they're called wireless air card? Not sure on the name.

    But in order to do that, you have to buy the "card" and then do the whole contract/long term thing.

    Do "pay as you go" wireless cards exist? I don't need it often enough to justify a plan, but occasionally, I do need mobile access

    I dont know about that. Call your carrier and ask. Or just call a local store. I havent heard of them though. I have the complete package on mine with Sprint.

    Depending on the phone you have... You can connect it to the laptop via USB and use it as a modem...

    You would be surprised... If it'll connect to the easy child it should have a toggle in settings to be used as mass storage or USB modem.

    LOL - look it up on Google, should be instructions...

    I don't think it will connect to a easy child! lol (its that old)

    But I'll check it out. Might be worth getting a different phone for...
