Not true. I had to speak to two Blackberry data reps since the first one told me that the $15 teathering add on was not available for the 8830. It may have to do with the fact that you may be in the P2K billing system and I believe the $30 plan is ensemble only. I do recall a post from CP which mentioned a code that was being implemented for the P2K customers. Do some searching and I'm sure you'll come across it.
