Default 8703e Teatherd modem

Does anyone know away around paying the $15 dollars extra month and using the blackberry as a teathered modem? I know with the Treo's I had found free software that allowed you to do this and never received additional charges. I heard there is som software called like mobile shark or something that does this but would it cost me more on my monthly bill?

HAHAHA!!! I love "teathering".

Anyway, the only way around Verizon's $15 charge is to get a new provider.
