I know that there has to be a good free or cheap e-mail, like hotmail
but maybe better. That is what I'm looking for, so I can closed my earthlink account and rid myself of that bill also. I removed both of my land lines so don't need dail up ISP any longer. I've jump off and went wireless internet. Glad I did boy do the pictures load up fast.

I've been on AOL dial-up for years. Just this week I went with Verizon DSL and kept my AOL but reduced it to a free service so I don't need to change my address.

I have a separate e-mail account on Yahoo for my iPhone. If I ever can get hi-speed wireless or cable I'll do away with MSN and that e-mail.

For me, it will be a huge job changing everything to the new address- I have several business and personal accounts linked to my MSN address [xx(]

Doesn't your ISP have email for free for you? I see this subject come up often and don't get it. My ISP provides me with free email and I always thought they all did that. They don't?

They should.....that is part of the draw...but then some people
want 1, besides a personal email, for friends and family, for
other stuff......While I also have a "WEB" mail through my
ISP.....I have found when using it, while on the road, my Sister's
AOL looks at it like it was SPAM and knocks it back....so I use my
Hotmail address, through MSN.COM....problem solved.

I guess that I don't understand this enough, but how do you get wireless internet service without an ISP that provides an e-mail address to you?

Hey, I don't know how it works either, but I went with Cricket wireless $35.00 a month no overage charges or anything. Just 35 a month. Works great at the house, but over the road there are not many Cricket towers, and then I be paying roaming charges, so for the desk top it's fine. I just log on, start Foxfire and bang I'm online. Cricket don't have email yet, or that I could find. I thank all that have replied to my request. I've went with Gmail, Not quite what I was looking for, but it will work fine.

Some e-mail accounts are universal, and some not so much. When I got my iPhone, one great feature was being able to access e-mail on it while on the road. Problem is, the iPhones will recognize most e-mail accounts, but mine- MSN- is one of the few that just aren't compatible. So I opened an account (free) with yahoo, one that's unversally accesible from all ISPs. So now, if I go to Road Runner, or one of the wireless providers, I won't have to change my e-mail again.

I still use my MSN account, but when I switch to a hi-speed ISP I'll cancel my $24.95/month MSN, and lose my MSN e-mail.

You like the I phone. I am due for a free upgrade and was thinking fo going from the Palm to the I-phone but don't know if it is compatible with the Ford Mobilese system. Now that the I-Phone is 3G it should be fast.

Don't know, Bill- be sure to ask before you buy. 3G only works where hi-speed is available, like your laptop wireless card.

If you feel like looking at a forum, you can learn an awful lot about the iPhone here:

Some of the dialog is childish, but there's a lot of good knowledge shared. And of course, if you have any questions I can answer I'm always happy to do so. If you want I'll send you my phone #.
