    Isn't that stupid last night I was talking to my SP and they told me there was no extra charge and then there was. This is so stupid.

    I thought tethering was only $15 extra if you are on BIS. When I had it on my plan I only paid $15.

    Uhm I thought this was free. That's what I gathered from the guy who sold me (my dad) the phone. I've been using it to get online with my laptop every now and then. I don't really have access to my bill but I think my dad would have said something if our bill was 60 rather than the 30 he thought he was goin to pay. I just installed the verizon cd and plugged in via usb. Speeds are pretty slow but I only have 1x at my apartment.

    If you have the 29.99 unlimited data plan then its 30 for tethering. With the 44.99 data plan its 15 bucks because if you have that plan combined with a calling plan its over 79.99, in that case you qualify for 15 dollar tethering. The language below from VZW site...

    "With BroadbandAccess Connect, customers can use their BlackBerry as a modem for downloading large documents to a laptop at speeds averaging 400 to 700 kbps on Verizon Wireless BroadbandAccess service that covers more than 140 million Americans in 171 major metropolitan markets. BroadbandAccess Connect is available for $15 with any Verizon Wireless BlackBerry voice and unlimited data plan beginning at $79.99; or $30 with the purchase of a BlackBerry data-only plan for $29.99"

    Visit the site or call a rep to confirm.
    Umm, yeah. That's if you don't have voice bundled with your BB plan. If you have a BB with no voice, just data, then it's $30. If you have voice and BIS or BES plan, it's $15.

    You might want to have our dad check look at your bill to see if you are getting charged for that.

    It is a pro-rated feature. Turn it on when you need it and turn it off when you don't. Don't use Bluetooth, it just burns the battery. I personally don't know how they can charge anything. Your data plan should not differentiate between berry data and teathering. Just my two cents.
