How does this new plan affect tethering? Is the new plan truly Unlimited?

Blackberry Tethering Plan with Cingular!

I don't know if this is related, but isn't everything by Google still in Beta?
Is Yahoo?

I still haven't heard.............

Will users currently on the $44.99 unlimited plan be automatically dropped down to the lower rate or will they have to wait until their current contract expires?

No like any rate plan or feature the company will not change it for you. Wether its an increase in price or decrease. Its just a feature so you can have it removed then when its added back on it will be at the new price!

I'll admit it's VERY hard to follow this thread, so if the answer to my question is here ... I'll apologize in advance.


Was it ever determined if the new reduced-price unlimited plan applies to people on BES? If it does, what's that purpose of the current $45/month plan. Is it just going away (hopefully)?

Check out these screenshots I just took. Look at number 2 under POP Download. You can set Gmail to either keep it in the inbox after being pulled by pop, delete it, or archive it. So I guess the issue has been fixed.
