    Cool, hope you enjoy it! You'll love using bridge for more than just browsing.

    Edit:

    I see you're on AT&T. Make sure you get your bridge app from Bridge Twitter Notification Odd name from the url, it's from http://rroyy.com

    AT&T in their infinite wisdom considers bridge browsing to be the same as tethering, and therefore requires you to have a tethering data plan in order to browse over the bridge. Because they don't overcharge you enough for their regular data plan and their crappy supposed 4G wireless network. It totally sucks, because the bridge one of the best features of the PB/BB combo. crAppWorld recognizes if you're on AT&T and sends you that 'special' version of the bridge app when you go to install it. The bridge app from rroyy.com is the same one everybody else gets, so get that one instead and you can browse to your heart's content when you're out of WiFi range.

    Good luck with the new PB!

    I hope that last part was facetious. ATT is nobodys friend. He is saying not to use the bridge app from ATT but instead use the one from rroxy. I'm glad you will be getting BB phones so that you will be able to use the Bridge. It does make using the PlayBook a lot better. At least your husband has mobile hotspot with his iPhone but again ATT will hit you up for a tethering plan fee. If you have mobile hotspot on your phone you can do the same thing without dragging around your clearspot. Don't know exactly what that is.
