Trapper, Depends where the nearest relay antenna is in relation to your position - you can only know if 911 works if you try it. Cell phone to computer or laptop works - though you need the correct hardware and software to connect the two. As for printers and laptops - printers when printing eat a lot of juice - give it a try at home and you'll know for sure. Laptops [new ones] last about 3 hrs on their batteries but have speed-stepping which means that when they run on battery [as opposed to from the wall] they run slower using less energy. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TTFN – Vic "To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ _____ From: pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of trapper Sent: Tuesday, 25 February, 2003 02:26 To: pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx I think you can set up computer to a cell phone..am I right..any info on this?? where I am most of the time a cell phone wont work..I have to head up the hill 10 miles to get to a spot where it works..
