Does anyone have a R6 they are using as a modem? I'm interested in what speeds you can get.

I currently use my e71 on vodafone as a modem, but the speeds are rubbish and was thinking of the telcom R6 to use as a modem or going to a xt usb modem.

Thoughts would be much appreciated.

My R6 is better qualified as a paperweight than a phone letalone a modem.
