... said the operator. So when I bought my Desire one of my goals was to tether it, as I don't have internet at home. The research I did said this was possible. My sales associate said this was possible. I was happy. Now, as I try to actually do it, I'm being told (by a different USCC sales associate), this is actually an additional fee to the data plan. This was never mentioned. I am not happy. Any way around this?
