Default Bought my BB 8330 today

Please Login to Remove!

from Alltel with the Smart Choice Pack 500 Plus.

Now I understand I have unlimited internet and e-mail on my phone, but then the salesperson confused me when she began talking about tethering.

Just so I'm clear: I won't be charged for browsing the internet/data usage at any time on my BB device, will I?

I don't understand what 'tethering' is...

Tethering would be if you used your blackberry as a modem for your laptop to connect to the internet. I know Verizon charges extra for this feature. Not sure how other carriers handle it.
