    I might be moving temporarily to a place that has no internet - can I connect the storm to the computer (mac and/or pc) to get internet access?

    You would have to pay for tethering service in order to do that.

    There is an additional cost. The total cost for both Data and Internet on and ongoing basis is $60 month. But as another response indicates, you can activate internet for only a short period of time if that is all you need.

    Interesting. My unlimited data package from VZW is $29.99, and tethering is $15.00 per month. That is only $45.00 per month which is what I paid when I was a winmo guy. That isn't $60.00, am I missing something?

    Yes - tethering will cost you an extra $15.00 a month and you'll have to download verizon's Access Manager.

    The data plan and tethering plan now costs you $60 a month no matter what.

    If you have the $30 data plan, tethering costs $30.

    If you have the $45 data plan, tethering costs $15.

    I got a csr to add the $15 t plan to the $30 d plan and it looked like it all worked... until I got my bill. I was charged a total of $60.

    Don't take my word. Log into your account at vzw.com and see.

    Some ppl may be grandfathered with the $30 + $15 deal. I had it with the curve and lost it with the storm.

    I believe you. I guess they have a magic number and $60 is it. No worries for me.. I don't plan on tethering until someone develops a winmo like hack.

    There's shark modem for blackberry but I have yet to find anyone that likes it. I didn't like it. I honestly believe they are stealing money.
