Woo hoo! V3 RAZR (TMobile) Lets me play FFXI! =D
Woot! Well my past exp with cell phone GPRS modem use was laggy.. good for emails and maybe some browsing in a quick out of house fix..
However.. V3 and newer phones with EDGE (ISDN) type speed...
Well... I put it to the ultimate test.. last night, someone sold me their like new RAZR for 30$! (They cancelled Cingular and was now Ntelos so she wanted to sell it)
I reprogrammed it, tweaked it etc.. Then had my laptop establish a internet connection using the V3 while at work. (Tmobile for normal customers is 20$ for a true mobile internet plan for unlimited) Ok Im online.
Loaded FFXI.. So far so good, no real delays.. logon to char in Al Zhabi. Woot! Perfect! Smooth playing, no real lag. Send rate in game about 75-125 with a recieve rate of 200+ (Peaks around 1000 in heavy areas)
I warped to Jueno, walked, Tele-Mea, ran to Windurst. No issues. Talked to friends. All of them are omgwtfbbq... I mean who really uses a CELL PHONE to get online with and have a stable game going? =D
So Im really hyped up right now.. no matter where I go.. I could play FFXI or Im assuming any Online game that has support for least 56k modems. Which.. thats impressive. =D
Anyways Im happy. Thought Id post about it. =D
