You'll also need to pay Sprint for the tethering option. If you use too much data they'll cancel your service for a TOS violation.

I can't speak for Sprint, but on AT&T (my provider) tethering is NOT included in the unlimited data... you must purchase a tethering plan on top of the unlimited data plan... so it would seem that for some providers, at least, unlimited data isn't really unlimited data...

Tethering on Sprint is included in the BES data package, but is not (I believe) included in the standard BIS data package.

Sprint Mobile Email Work: Access to corporate email on feature phones (non PDA devices) through Outlook Web Access (OWA) or a desktop redirector. If your company uses Lotus Notes Domino, you can obtain access to that email on your phone through redirector software that can be downloaded and then direct mailed to your phone.
Receive corporate email on Microsoft ExchangeSM 2000, 2003 and 2007 and on Lotus NotesSM Domino versions 6.0, 6.5 and 7.0 through a desktop redirector software.
BlackBerry® Internet Service (BIS): Manage up to 10 different accounts with a simple three-click email setup, and IM on the go with Yahoo!® Messenger, AIM®, Google Talk and BlackBerry Messenger. Please note: BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES), which provides secure corporate email access and access to corporate IT administration, is not included and available for an additional cost.

The FAQ is always a good place to start on any discussion forum site:
Using BlackBerry As Modem - BlackBerryFAQ

Though it doesn't seem to mention that you do need to pay for tethering with some carriers.

I've been doing it for a long time, and the speed has always been acceptable.
