Default Being Charged for GPRS although having unlimited data plan

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there..Iam using Blackberry Pearl 8120 handset and "Airtel" (prepaid) service provider..
Today I registered with Blackberry Internet Services... Unlimited Data Plan for Rs.899..on my blackberry and Data services has been activated.. fine....
But when I connect to PC with the settings(+cgdcont=1."IP","airtelgprs.com",0,0) ... Iam being charged for 30 paise/50 KB... which shouldn't be because of my unlimited plan... ( May be I think BB Internet services or different from GPRS...so Iam being charged for GPRS.. correct me if I wrong....)....
Is there any other settings instead of "APN='airtelgprs" ( I think Iam being charged for that)
Is there any way to access internet on my PC without being charged...

Help would be appreciated....
Advanced Thanks...
Desparado............

I would think that there is a plan to use the Blackberry to "tether" to your PC.
Verizon charges extra each month for this (on top of the Unlimited Blackberry Data Plan).
I would contact Airtel and ask about adding the ability to tether to your PC. Should save you some money.
