    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~the 8703 can tether but you have to pay $15 a month on top of your unlimited plan price

    All I can say is, I'm half a happy camper. Right now all I need is a resolution for the intel macs.

    Do you still have to buy the full version? Last time I used that program I was limited to I think 10 meg before the demo ran out.
