Default Another Tmobile 7100T response

Here is what I received on asking about using the 7100 as a modem.
----
"Unfortunately, the Blackberry 7100t was never intended to used as a wireless modem. You are correct that T-Mobile has limited port access over the T-Zones connection and has also limited the HTTP transport over port 80. The only ports that remain open via the T-Zones (WAP) connection are 25, 80, and 110. A subscription to T-Mobile Internet would be required to browse any HTML sites. However, currently this option is not available in conjunction with any Blackberry data service. A change to this policy is being addressed, however we do not have an estimated time as to when this will be available as an option."
----

Is there any documentation that this is an intended feature beyond the fact that it was found to work? Anything from RIM?

According to this I would have to pay another $30 on top of the $60 I am already paying for the "Unlimited" internet I have now, I do not see that happening.

Are there any carriers that support using the 7100 as a modem?
Are their rate plans any better than TMobile where you would have to buy a second unlimited plan for a device that was fully capable of internet access till it was chopped off at the knees.

Of course I am stuck with tmobile for the next 10 months...

Well the simpler choice is to get a MDS added through a third party. Check Myblueberry.com its just 10$ and all ports will work (verichat, ssh etc).

it is definitely possible to use the 7100 as a modem right now if you have the BB service. Since with the BB service you have access to full HTML access on the BB it self, then using it as a modem will work for sure.

Possible, but not with T-Mo blocking the ports.

I second a third party MDS provider. I'm done giving T-mobile more money until they fix this for us.
