AOL at 14.4Kb

Received the new/old Kyocera 6035 pda/phone and activated with Verizon easily (just a non-cell phone call), and played with it a bit over the past week. Good and bad points to this phone.

Installed AOL on my laptop, partly to test the modem function of the cell phone, and partly out of curiousity. I had an AOL account I used occasionally (it was useful at odd times for a reason I cannot recall) up until about 10 years ago.

Funny thing is - AOL is painfully slow over a cell phone (nominal) 14.4Kb modem! Maybe I had just forgotten how slow dialup connections really are...
