I'm putting this on the budget board since it seems a reasonable price alternative to internet access while traveling if you only want a small amount (I think! ? )

I use VM for my cell phone. I just found this while mucking around their site.

I know NOTHING about wireless internet, wi-fi, etc. I'm trying to figure out, if I use this, will I incur any fees at my resort (ASMu)? Sorry, I'm a techno-newb :rolleyes:

I am bringing dd's laptop anyway to transfer pictures from our cameras at the end of the day, so I'm thinking I would get the $20/30 day for our trip (2 weeks long), just to keep in touch with work email in case they have any emergencies). But I don't want to get some ginormous secret charges on my room when I check out :scared:

Thanks for any help!
