I have just been using trancell with dialup. Trancell sends out the responses to any email address. It doesn't care if its wireless or a standard yahoo pop address.
So, so far, its just an interesting way to get news, weather, sports, jokes sent each day to the mailstation. And much better than what I had been using (infobeat) which was much more commercial than news. On trancell there is also a clutzy way to get web content, but you would not want to be using it regularly. That's more in the nature of, that's cool that it can be done with such limited email program
The trancell site gives the idea that it might be possible to telnet, and keep an ongoing communication with a unix machine, but so far it hasn't worked for me. What I mean by an ongoin communication, is like a normal dialup session that could last for half an hour, compared to the way mailstation usually works of send out a file, checks for new messages, then hangups.
Even if you haven't got your mailstation, you can test the trancell waters by grabing an account, and exploring it with the telnet program on your normal machine.
