    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for your help in advance. I have the $29.99 data plan from VZW. I just downloaded the trial of Empower HTML Viewer Standard. I see that this uses a lot of data when downloading emails with images, is that okay, or is there a limit on how much I can use with this plan? Also, how long does the trial last?

    Also, I know that there is tethering for $15.00 extra per month. Are there any ways to connect with out that fee (meaning that it will not be as fast, possible 1X speeds, like I could on my RAZR V3M which was legal to do)?

    Thanks a lot!

    5 gig limit, loosely enforced.

    tethering is $60 amonth total. (bb unlimited, $29.99 + $ 30.00).
    The $ 15 you refer to is an add on to a BES account which starts @ $45.
    You can also get a daily rate.

    No Dun hacks out there for a BB, does bring back some fond memories..

    I actually did have $15.00 tethering on the $29.99 plan. I can get you in contact with someone if you want to add it.

    This is true. I've seen it done before.

    As far as the $29.99 data plan, it's unlimited. So go ahead and play away!

    I believe they just changed their plan offerings........I was told the same thing: $29.99 data plus $15 for tethering.

    If your tethering watch the 5 gig limit because VZ dub is going to be charging per megabyte after those 5 gigs, .49 cents a pop.
