  • 14:24 @donmcallister Make sure your MIFI unit is compatible with the HSPA bands of AT&T or T-Mobile. (Verizon and Sprint use EV-DO) #
  • 14:28 @ChrisBulow I don't think the British version of MIFI is compatible with the EV-DO networks of Sprint/Verizon. #
  • 14:32 @douglayne Verizon uses EV-DO. No SIM with that. Europe, AT&T and T-Mobile use GSM-HSPA with SIMs. #
  • 14:37 @Scharfensteiner Verizon and Sprint use EV-DO (not HSPA as in Europe). No SIM with that.AT&T and T-Mobile may be on wrong band for your MIFI #
  • 14:44 @pilotbob Even with a GSM-HSPA device, your device has to be compatible with the right band. #
  • 14:50 @pilotbob ... For example, the iPhone will _not_ give you high speed data with T-Mobile. But you _may_ get slower Edge or GPRS data speeds. #
  • 14:56 @Scharfensteiner It's a bit tricky, Voice, Edge, HSPA (up and downstream). Google it (see Wikipedia article). #
  • 16:23 .@donmcallister The MiFi 2352 (Europe) will only work in the slow Edge on AT &T and not work in T-Mobile's 1700Mhz areas (ok in ltd 2100 area #
  • 16:28 .@donmcallister ...The MiFI 2372 (America), will work with AT&T and with T-Mobile in it's limited 2100MHZ areas. bit.ly/mifi850mhz #
  • 16:42 @DonMcAllister With that model (Mifi 2352), in the USA, you will only get EDGE speeds with AT&T. T-Mobile runs on 1700 and 2100, so may wk. #
  • 17:06 @donmcallister Where in the US are you going? I'm bored so if you let me know I'll find info on-line for the best data provider and device. #
  • 17:08 @donmcallister pre-paid data in the USA news.cnet.com/8301-30686_3-10403933-266.html #
  • 17:14 @MPRubyDhalla How is "poverty" defined in your 1 in 10 and 1 in 5? #
  • 17:18 Can the USA really afford high speed rail? Sure building it will created jobs, but Greyhound inter-city bus drivers don't live in Europe. #
  • 17:24 @InklessPW Doesn't really matter unless you are surfing the web like crazy on it and are paying 3G out of pocket. #
  • 17:26 @InklessPW 3G is theoretically safer but wifi is less of a battery drain. But for twitter it doesn't matter(very little data, public anyway) #
  • 17:51 @donmcallister 3G tends not to work well at large events. I would suggest using the many wifi options (including free wifi at McDonald's). #
  • 17:59 @donmcallister San Francisco is wifi crazy: hotspotr.com/wifi/map/1-san-francisco-ca #
  • 18:57 @donmcallister Bring your E ropean mifi. Enable international roaming. Find out what the data rates are and use it as a back up to wifi. #
  • 18:59 @donmcallister AtandT will be saturated, so Edge is about as fast as the locals will get anyway (with an iPhone or Amercian ATT mifi). #
  • 19:01 @donmcallister If you are lucky, your mifi will connect to T-Mobile, and you can laugh at the AT&T iPhone users(untill you get your UK bill) #
  • 19:41 @donmcallister 8 pounds per MB is what Orange charges for USA. AT&T charges $15 for 75MB (but no clue on how to get a SIM). #
  • 20:07 @corcoran Put yours on vibrate #
  • 20:58 I case you you doubted that Canada and the USA are different, all top 10 trends are currently different. #
  • 21:01 ... Now it's 9 out of 10 thanks to iPad #
  • 23:24 Watching Future of Earth on Newsworld. There was a great ad for Newfoundland, describing it as a land of non-conformity. I'm sold. #
  • 23:25 Newfoundland is one if the only provinces or states I haven't been to. #
  • 23:35 @arleigh LoL #
  • 00:20 @InklessPW 13 of 14 responses to your wifi v 3G question are from men. Now you know how to boost MacLean's male readership numbers. #
  • 00:29 @parislemon I can't. Seems ironically incompatible with iPhone. twitpic.com/10z2p3 #
  • 00:34 @DenisCoderre Le titre est mal choisi. Par contre, l'idée d'accepter des réfugiers haïtiens est tout à fait louable. Le Canada devrait aussi #
  • 01:03 @DenisCoderre C'est p lutôt LePoint qui parles d'état. Le président sénégalais parle de "naturisation" et d'accueil. #
  • 01:12 @DenisCoderre Bien que le président sénégalais n'aille pas mentionné "Etat", ses propos portent certainement à confusion. #
  • 01:17 Good grief, @TheEllenShow has an iPhone app! David Letterman? Nope. #
  • 01:22 Check out this Stanza "update" description. WTF? twitpic.com/10zaaw #
  • 01:27 By the way, the @theEllenShow app is not available in Canada. #
  • 02:00 @globepolitics It's like Stevie Cameron never wrote her book about the Mulroney years. #
  • 02:03 @louispeitzman keep in mind cheques do expire #
  • 02:05 I read an article somewhere that says people stop looking for work when they get a temp job. I'm like that with loto tickets. #
