A quick word of warning: the phone doesnt register how much packet data you use when its acting as a modem (so you cant find it in the logs later, under packet data, from what I can tell). Also, keep in mind, that 3 counts both uploads and downloads as part of the quota you get per billing cycle. Ive not started wanting to do usage accounting, but Im sure its what Ill conquer next.
