From my point of view, I'm not short on minutes at all because I only need the plan minutes for when HSPA+ or WiFi data connections aren't available (and I'm on a WiFi network tied to a 25/25mbps fiber connection 95% of the time). Groove IP integrates fairly seamlessly into the phone.

Have you bought into T-M? Anybody else know about fee free tethering?
The plan is available directly through the T-Mobile website for new activations. As for tethering, I haven't given it a shot yet but some poking around online indicated to me that their methods for detecting tethering are somewhat crude. It looks like just connecting to my home VPN server would likely break their tethering detection.
