HELP! Need advice from a techno-geek ;-)

Hey, all! I'm computer literate, but computer-tech illiterate! So, I need to ask some of you smart tech people for some advice.

I don't have a telephone line at home because I strictly use my cell phone for both massage business and personal business. I also don't have cable. I don't watch television enough to justify the expense of cable, but I am contemplating going for a dish service. It's a little cheaper...but JUST a little.

Do I have any options other than getting an isp through satellite? Is there something feasible to use with a cell phone?

I live in a small-to-mid size city so I'm not sure about wireless access. We don't have any coffee houses that I know of that offer any access.

Any advice?

Thanks for your help,
DeAnna

If you aren't looking to spend much money on internet and don't mind sharing with others, then the library is probably your best bet. You can usually get online for free there.

If you use your cell for data, there will be much higer charges (when i use my palm-phone for data i get charged a higer rate per minute. I would say, is not worth it, get yourself a land line with the basic service, no-frills and forget about it.
