    Hello all.

    My mom is looking to get rid of our cable internet at home to save some money.

    I know that the Storm can tether to a laptop, but is it capable of tethering to a desktop?

    Also, can the Storm tether to two computers at once. Not at the same time, but can I switch between a desktop and a laptop.

    And if it matters, I am a VZW customer.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. And thank you in advance.

    Yes, and yes... but for everyday computer use, you might end up over the 5GB cap

    What is the 5GB gap? When I first talked to Verizon, I was told that I would have unlimited internet access.

    I am familiar with the VZW modem that has the limit? Is this similiar?

    You have unlimited BlackBerry data usage. Tethering requires the tethering package addon & it does come with a 5GB data cap.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I live full time in an area where most people only stay for vacation, so I don't have any neighbors around until next summer.

    How much is the tethering package? I was curious also in case I take my laptop when I'm on vacation.

    The data plan total will always be 59.99.
    If you pay 29.99 now for your data plan(BIS) then its 30.00 to tether.
    If you pay 44.99 now for your data plan(BES) then its 15.00 to tether.
    In the end its always 59.99.
