Is there anyway I can use my cell phone as a dialup modem so I can get rid of my landline?

by on July 2, 2011

Q: I would like to know if there is a way to use my computer’s dial up modem in conjunction with a cell phone?

I process credit card orders with the dial-up modem, but I would like to dispense with my land line and it’s added expense, and just use my cell phone. Is it possible? How?

    Not with your cell phone in that manner. If you want to drop your land line and still do credit card processing, your most cost effective option will be to process them via the Internet.

    This is how most shops handle processing since it is much faster and cost effective. Check with your existing processor to see about switching over.
