Cingular charges $60/month (I think) to tether.

Should do.

What's the $60 (or in my case Verizon's $15) a month fee actually buy? Do they enable something in the phone? Is it for using them as an ISP? (and if the latter, how does Sharkmodem work? Who does it dial?)

There is nothing for FREE out there. Shark modem is your best bet, it's about 30 or 40 bucks, ONE TIME FEE and that's it...

If you don't think that's worth it, well good luck to ya..

I'm using Bell Mobility in Canada with an unlimited data plan and got hit with $200 in long distance roaming charges when I used my Blackberry and laptop up North for about four or five hours of usage. Quite a surprise.
