I can say with the brdige enabled, there is nothing to the tethering on my PB, it has worked seemless for me now for a few days and no issues @ all. I get calander reminders, bbm and many other things and my BB torch never leaves my OEM case on my belt. Granted it may have been a slow start, but RIM is heading in a better direction!

I love my 32 GB PB

BMAN good luck, will say a prayer for you!
