Interesting... because if a different computer in the room had winpcap and you were wirelessly connected they would still be able to sniff your packets.
I guess they are smart - but not smart enough   :)

Interestingly enough, I was blocked from running the DC-Unlocker program until I uninstalled WINPCAP - a "packet sniffer" that was loaded on my machine (from an "Ethical Hacking" course I once took :) ).   I guess they don't want people knowing the unlock codes that they send to your phone, but if every phone is different - why would they care?

It will cost 10 credits which is 10 euro, has anyone tried it recently?
Or does anyone have credits that can test it out and if it works I will pay you for it.
It works beautifully!    I have the ZTE F160 GoPhone that two dealers could not unlock, but a few minutes ago I was able to unlock it using the DC-Unlocker for 10 Euro, which is a little bit above $15

I wanted to get one of those too but from what I heard, Sprint shut that down so the only way you'd get one is from someone who got it before they locked everything up. I just tether my phone now for free.
It is still very much active!     I don't know about Sprint, but my device is from Virgin Mobile and it still available, at
I don't know about the Sprint device, but even though Virgin Mobile uses the Sprint network, it is still an independent company that does offer the Mifi service.

Just a question on how the venture program works. I'll have 3 accounts with 110,000 venture points in each. If I book a vacation or cruise for $3300 than split it up by charging $1100 on each card will it work for a totally free vacation? ??? ??
Yes - that is exactly how it works - I also did it by splitting the charges and I got the credit the next day!

Anybody know if you can use the miles on all purchases or just travel?
Only what is keyed into their system as a travel expense.   If you look at my credit card statement that I posted, you will see what I mean.

The Duck Tour starting at South Beach is a lot of fun for all ages!

There are tons of wireless routers on the market, starting at about $30.     Here is a link to J&R's page...
You can plug your computer directly into the router, and connect your other devices wirelessly.   That is the most common way of doing it.

Virgin Mobile has a no-contract Mifi plan for $50/month where you get (almost) unlimited bandwidth.   You have to buy the Mifi device (which I bought on eBay for $85) and then you can use it when you need it, and not pay for months you don't need it - so it's great for when you're travelling - or going away for Pesach!   :)
It uses the Sprint network.

How did you spend exactly $1000 on El Al?
Easy - I had the travel agent charge two different cards  :)
$1K on this one, and the rest on an AAdvantage card

shux.... someone try the mint with cap1 and report plz... looking for brave soldiers that will scout out these uncharted waters... cant risk getting FR'ed
As I posted earlier - I bought $1K of coins and it posted as a regular purchase - on both mine & my wife's cards!
Here is a screen shot of the Cap1 statement - which also includes a $1K credit for an EL AL ticket  :) :) :)
Good Shabbos!

Someone on Flyertalk confirmed that he was the mint was a valid purchase and that it worked for him so I just did it.
I bought coins on both my Cap1 credit cards, and they were billed as a normal purchase.
