    Isn't USB tehering a myth? I have not tested it but doesn't it consume the battery rapidly ... in fact so rapidly that the trickle charge through the USB cable can't keep ahead of it.

    Isn't it true that the only real tehering is wireless and the only wireless teherting that can be discussed in this forum is Mobile Hotspot (the $20/mo option on my bill)?
