Default data plan limitations hack?

Please Login to Remove!

hey guys. so telus is offering unlimited web and email data. it allows apps to use email, but as long as its from the blackberry (not as a modem for a cellphone)
my question is... is there such a thing as a hack that makes it work to my laptop as a modem, but missleads the blackbery/and or telus into thinking its from the blackberry?

The modem use uses TCP/IP so you need to have access to that. If your carrier allows access to that then you can, otherwise not.

They will know so unless you want a huge phone bill, it's not worth it. Just pony up for an unlimited data plan.

He's saying that the unlimited plan doesn't include tethering.
