T-Mobile Makes New Tethering Plans Available

With the announcement of their new budget-friendly handsets like the Comet, T-Mobile officially rolled out their new new tethering plans.  How does it work?   It’s actually quite simple.

Both data plans will be sold with a voice and text message plan.

    I used 66mb yesterday streaming a radio station to my N1 so I’m really wondering what Android phone will use less than 200mb in a month. Luckily T-Mobile has a system where if you go over or will go over your usage in your current cycle you can add a higher tier for the month and switch back later or you can leave it higher. Neither of those options will affect your contract. But still many people (parents?) will have to keep a close eye on their accounts or get hit with overage charges.

    How will this affect current Nexus One Froyo users?

    This will not affect android users. This is an option only for samsung users to tether. Probably associated with the tmobile tablet. At the moment Tmobile has no way of preventing users from tethering unlike verizon sprint and att. If they will figure out if you are tethering and charge later I have no clue. I doubt you have to worry too much as a tmobile customer, they rock.
