I n fact, Mungola's entire defence force consists of a single squadron of fighter planes - the venerable F-27 'Platypus'.

Your mission is to pilot your trusty Platypus and save peaceful Mungola! Fly across the squashy fields and trees, avoid the snowy mountains and protect your planet. Shoot down the enemy ships and marvel as they disappear in a splat! Collect fruit bonuses and a range of power-ups to aid you in your quest.

Using this application will help you to avoid paying your carrier’s expensive monthly “Phone as Modem” fees – thus this software solution easily pays for itself in less than a month.

USB modem is great, I replaced my dsl with USB modem, since it was a one-time fee and waaay faster than ATT dsl (3 times as fast) because they limit ALL their plans to about 70-80kbps no matter how much you pay according to what I've experienced (70kbps downloading podcasts w ATT, vs. 210kbps w USB modem) and read on the web.

USB modem with Sprint got 1.5Mbps per speedtest.com!

Sprints proprietary tethering program is slower than ATT, 30-40kbps, and you have to manually reconnect after receiving a phone call. USB modem will sometimes stay connected even during a call, and if not able to, automagically reconnects you after you hang up. I haven't had good luck with USB modem staying connected during a phone call after buying the non-trial version, with either centro or 755p even with 55+mb of memory free. YMMV. (USB modem claims that connectivity during a phone call is variable depending upon how much memory on the phone is available.)

I did identify a compatibility issue between USB modem and Fileprog (freeware), which would cause fileprog to crash phone and reset when exiting the program.

I solved it by using Linkstart (freeware) to auto-import/export USB modem to and from the external card as needed so it's not resident on device memory when using Fileprog.
