Not yet but I will give it a try over the weekend. I'm not to excited since it will be the same slow speeds I had with T-mobile I'm not sure if EDGE will help but I doubt it.

I've tethered mine. Not run any speed tests but it works well.

Both, actually. Vista required a whole lot of extra work because the native drivers didn't provide for DUN. I had to do a lot of work to find a way to replace Vista's drivers with Widcomm's drivers. Do a search here and you'll find a link to that site. In the end, however, it all worked.

I tethered mine and it works as expected. It's running on Edges speeds so I'm just waiting for a 3G Blackberry so that I can upgrade.

My workaround is to take my sim card out plug it into a data card, and I now have a 3G data connection.

data card? Intrigued and interested! Do you have tethering in your plan?
