As I've posted in the previous poll (Which standard do you use for mobile Internet access?), I'm using Windows CE (as Windows Mobile devices was called before) devices since 1997 to go online if I'm away from my home or office PCs.
However, in the first years I've used the Windows CE device as the I/O device and my modem was my (Ericsson) mobile phone I've connected with my P/PCs and H/PCs via Infrared. With the introduction of Windows Mobile powered Pocket PC Phone Editions in 2002, everything changed since the Pocket PC Phone Edition devices itself includes the modem functionalities now (in the early years it was just GPRS, now it's even EDGE, UMTS and HSDPA - not to forget the American standards like 1x and EVDO) and the Windows Mobile devices become my modem for my Notebook which is pretty handy since I can leave PCMCIA modem cards at home now.

Do you use your Windows Mobile device as a Wireless Modem for your Notebook?

Because I know - unfortunately some carriers have removed this modem option, I've added this option to the poll as well. Hope not too many of you are left alone without the modem option.

Cheers ~ Arne
