Sory to say, but there is no card that works. There is also no place to put a card. As of right now, the best option os to get a pone with bluetooth, and a data plan and to dial up via you cell phone. Haven't done it myself, but I have seen it done and it's pretty slick.

Get a Bluetooth Phone, Sony Ericcsons are the best to use with Mac. You can sync address book, ical, and they are awesome.

I use my Bluetooth Blackberry Pearl 8100 through TMOBILE and get wirless speeds upto 180K on the road driving. But the Macbook pro has the Express card slot and the old powerbooks have a PCMCIA card slot. Verizon currently has software for the MAC for the MBP express card slot.... Soon Nextel/Verizon will have the same. Just a matter of time. But only the MBP's have the slots to be used.

For the Blackberry guys, Look here

thats all i can say.

Good luck :-p

I have Nextel, I’m anxious. I’ve been chugging along with Bluetooth on my i605.

This is only the case if you have a macbook, with the macbook pro there is a express card slot, I am not sure if Verizon has updated to meet the new technology but when we got it for my dads dell they had the option to order one for a powerbook (which would work in any windows or mac computer with a card slot) for an extra $20... its a special order.
