I have the data cable, and the "driver" found elsewhere.  Can this be used to connect to the internet, ie - instead of a USB T3g modem?

If so, will Telecom allow one of the "PDA only" data plans to be attached?  I don't need 200 mg a month (let alone a gig!) and the only way to get a casual data plan now is via PDA.  Vodabom are the same. 

Thanks!

the 6650 works as a tethered modem, the device is not evdo, there is also no option to add a dataplan to this device.

Doh!

So to do what I described, I'd need a smart phone/PDA, right?  A Treo, any of the OKTA phones?

I just sold a faulty Treo 700wx - had no cell coverage for calls, but EVDO was 100%.  Some kind of known fault, apparently, although I got no joy from Telecom.

What a shame I flicked it....  :(

In the phone range, Kyocera 2235, nokia 6235, nokia 6275 (current model) will work as a tethered modem however on 1x CDMA only , around 14.4 - 56.0kbs speed. If you want EVDO 3G speed, the Okta Touch, Okta Agent, Okta Boss, HTC Titan, Apache, Treo 700. The pda's running Windows Mobile 5 work well as it is standard usd and there is an internet sharing function that automatically does everything. Dont use the Okta Mondo wont work

Thanks very much for this.  I'll keep an eye out for a used device on TradeMe.  Kicking myself I sold that faulty Treo 700  :(
