What the fook? The iPhone and the... XBOX?!?
Okay. Quick scenario.*
I recently disconnected my cable Internet service because I am waiting for my fios to get here. It's taking a little but longer than it should, so I'm screwed for now. *
So, I'm cut off.*
I also happen to be a Call of Duty FREAK. It's been a while since I played, and I was really getting the itch, big time. In the worst way.*
So, what to do?
Then, I got hit with one of those "Real Men of Genius" moments.*
My XBOX 360 has a wireless network adapter... and, I have "MyWi" on my phone, so... Gee, maybe I can use my 3G cell signal to broadcast a Wi•Fi hotspot for my XBOX 360 to connect to! Let's try it?
So I did. And it WORKED! Christ, color me surprised! But surely, it couldn't be a GOOD connection you say.*
Well... Wrong! I'm in NYC, one of the worst areas for AT&T service on the iPhone. And my XBOX Live signal never dropped below 3 out of 5 bars.*
PLUS, the XBOX didn't kill me in data either!
I spent 5 hours playing on my 3G signal, and I downloaded a total of 31.72MB, and uploaded a total of 27.93mb. Holy crap, that's less than watching YouTube!
I just wanted to let everyone know about this in case you find yourself in a similar situation to the one I was in.*
