I only want to use this pixi for a phone and a router for my notebook. I've been trying every day all day for 1 week now and it just ain't gonna happen. Seems like nobody knows how including verizon,palm,the manual{duh}. Cauliflower ear staring to get worse. Appreciate any suggestions.

Please provide a few more details so we can help. Are you trying to set up the Mobile Hot Spot feature? What problems are you having (setting it up, connecting other devices)?

You can use the phone with WiFi or as Mobile Hot Spot here is a link to the phone manual to view the process.

My use exactly.  I assume you are using wifi.  I use the hotspot feature--it's one of the apps. Open the launcher (arrow lower right corner), scroll left or right, up or down until you find it.  Open and set up.  It's a breeze.  Just watch your usage; phone data counts against your 5gb allowance.

I have found the phone operators to be very good. I have spent a lot of time this last week with them and was always pleased with their help. The manual tells a lot about what the phone will do and little about how to do anything. The website is not good at all if you want a question answered.  Period.  I can't even change my e-mail address so verizon can email if needed.. I gotta be honest though. I like the phone and on my own I will learn how to use it. One more thing. Palm would probably help but they don't spesk English.

You have an Email & Web plan that covers the data that you use on the phone (sending/receiving email, downloads and web browsing) and that feature is unlimited if you have the $29.99 feature.  Your 5GB plan is only used when you are using the device as a Mobile Hotspot and have a wireless device (computer, laptop, iPod, iPad) connected to it.
