Especially considering T-Mobile's official policies on tethering... Imagine the network load if everyone with a Vista laptop tethered their BlackBerry 8320s over Bluetooth and accessed the GPRS functionalities of their phone and simultaneously tried to connect to Yahoo! Messenger before they received a phone call and lost it all. LOL... That's a lot for America's smallest 3G network.

I just went right through the T-Mobile tethering section point by point and still can't connect....

I might try it with the bluetooth now.
