Re: internet tether and app world

My understanding is that the tethered internet is seperate from the local apps like Youtube etc. The bridged apps are encapsulated within their own space and cant see the rest of the playbook. I was told at a launch party that there would be NO internet for bridged so we're half way there in my opinion.

Re: internet tether and app world

Agreed. Bridged apps run in their own space.

 

However, we're talking about simply being tethered, not bridged, and not able to use app world.

Re: internet tether and app world

If you are an AT&T wireless subscriber you have to purchase the Datapro 4GB Tethering Data Plan for $45.00 per month before you can tether. As for the other wireless carriers, I don't know. Check with your carrier. Also www.crackberry.com has additional info regarding the bridging vs tethering question.
