    Default Will installing a Sprint OS on a Verizon BB disable Tethering? (I'm using AT&T GSM btw)

    I just wiped by Blackberry 9650 and I'm not only looking for an OS that is good for tethering w/o the BIS service but also wanted to know if my installation of a Sprint OS disabled tethering on my phone which lead me to wiping it... (I used to be able to tether but now I can't) I've used official releases of OS6 and found that it ruined my internet connectivity on my phone and so I downgraded to OS5 for Sprint but I think that made my tethering no longer work... So, should I use a hybrid OS5 release or is someone able to find me a verizon OS5 release?

    I reinstalled the OS and used an Alaska Wireless version which resolved the tethering issue. Everything works fine now and I even updated the OS further via the Blackberry Desktop manager to 5.0.0.975. I just wish I could get rid of that damn problem where when there is slightly poor signal, about half the time when initiating a data connection, it will try to connect through emgsm.vzw3g.com instead of wap.cingular....
