	None taken. Our pricing structure on the other hand seems to be quite
current and very related to being shaken down. I still don't get the
handset only data plans vs the tethering plans. Isn't data just data, no
matter where it's sent from? Of course if I tether I am not required to
go through my carriers portal. I'm still not coughing up another $60 on
top of my voice plan. I'd still like to figure out a way to use my
handset to dial my included dialup internet access.
