Tethering Data Plan?
 
I called Cingular to verify these three items were on my account:

WIX EXTENDED INTERNET $0.00
WIX DATA CONNECT $0.00
WRLSS INTRNT XPRS PAY PER USE $0.00

He stated, that they do not give these out anymore with the BB Unlimited Data Plan, and I would need to subscribe to the Tether Data Plan for 74.99/month. Does anyone have any info to back this up, or did I just make the unforunate mistake of mentioning I was trying to tether, and would I just need to call back and get someone different?

You located the correct information. I am w/Cingular and think it is completely ridiculous to charge for this feature which is equivalent to what I get charged for my high speed internet at the house!

blenahan: im in the same situation as you are. according to someone here in thie forum, i called cingular up to remove the WRLSS INTRNT XPRS PAY PER USE $0.00 since i have unliimited data. otherwise i would get additional charges if i use a 3rd party im software like google talk.

after last nite, when they remove the WRLSS INTRNT XPRS PAY PER USE $0.00 setting, my bbweather (weather program) stop working this morning. yesterday it didn't work initially until i put the apn settings. now im wondering after removing WRLSS INTRNT XPRS PAY PER USE $0.00, it stops working?

keep calling cust service, someone will put it on for u, call normal cust serv though, dont say tether.

put which one on if you already have "unlimited" data plan?

All three.

you said all 3. but yesterday somone here told me to remove the WRLSS INTRNT XPRS PAY PER USE $0.00 feature since i have unlimited data. and i verify this with a rep last night that i dont need that feature, otherwise, it would cost me more money. so either of you are lying to me.

WRLSS INTRNT XPRS PAY PER USE $0.00 gives u wap.cingular apn, but the wix data connect should give u the same thing, call them back make sure that WRLSS INTRNT XPRS PAY PER USE $0.00 is off then ask them to go to tech support and explain to them u need that apn on your account and they will add it manually.
sometimes when u remove the WRLSS INTRNT XPRS PAY PER USE $0.00 it takes off the wap.cingular apn of your account, even though it should stay on because of your bb unlimited plan.

Man your attitude for someone who needs help leaves a lot to be desired, keep it up and see how much more help you will get.
