Using a cell phone to connect to Internet via dial-up ISP

I am seriously considering canceling my home phone service and just going to cell phones. I am very cheap though, and do not want to pay for (in my opinion) expensive Internet service through cable or satellite providers. I am happy with my $10/month dial-up connection. I have read about using software and a cable that allows you to connect a cell phone to the computer, then dial up any ISP. I currently get about 45 Kbps with my dial-up, and I have read that anywhere from 50 Kbps to 100 Kbps should be available with a GSM phone. Has anyone out there tried this? Am I crazy? Does it work? What should I know? Where do I get the software and the cable to connect my cell phone to my computer?
