    I do.......it works fine........easiest way is to use the IP Modem secion while connected to Desktop Manager.........the T-Mobile APN of wap.voistream.com is already listed in the configure menu.........this APN setting works fine or you can set up a custom configuration and use their newer APN of epc.tmobile.com .....either one will work just fine.

    Make sure you have DM 5.0 and above, in order to use the built-in tether so you don't have to dink around with computer settings. This, of course, is providing you receive a netbook with Windows OS - Linux, from what I understand, won't allow you to put DM on it (but I could be wrong.........)..
    cheers!

    Not on any current data plan I've seen. Let's see if Norris reads this thread. He's the expert on rate plans but I tether and am never charged. Of course, I also have an unlimited rate plan.
