Default Bold Tethering - EDGE Only?

Please Login to Remove!

Can someone confirm this? I had heard that even if tethering is on your plan the Bold modem is only able to use EDGE for data transfer when tethering?

Code:
Modem:
    *
      EDGE
    *
      Class 10
    *
      236.8 kbps

Will test this now on T-Mobile Germany.

Edit: Tethering on 3G works.
