Re: NTLK Modems for 2100 ???

Quite honestly, there aren't any real "gotcha's" with
any of the modems listed for the Newt...The only
caveats are if you're going to be using them for any
special purposes such as cell phones or overseas
travel (if you're not from the US)
So, take your pick! My personal preference is the
Simple modem. It's only downside was that I needed a
PC to perform the upgrade, but since then, it's
performed flawlessly. I also keep a Motorola Montana
card around for my StarTAC cell phone and an Ericsson
card for my AF738 Cell phone. Other than that, I've
used the morotola Cellect card, AT&T KeepInTouch card,
several NEC's, and a Psion gold card. I also have
several varieties of the Megahertz x-jack card that
work (and several that won't) as well as a 3-comm that
kinda works...
It all depends on what you're into and what you can
get your hands on considering the fundage situation!

this is a temporary sig file until I can figure out a more clever one to use
