The GPRS tethering is the same principal as ATTWS(Blue) and Cingular 
(Orange) are now the same network in most locations. See http:// 
www.taniwha.org.uk/gprs.html for the APN, Username and Password along  
with some general instructions. The 2G Razr works fine for GPRS at  
~128k which is plenty for a filtered feed on APRS. As with ATT, and  
most all other carriers, tethering your laptop on a unlimited Media  
Net plan is a violation of your TOS. Read up on the rules before you  
decide. That being said, it works fine. In fact the Razr seems to be  
~10-20k faster than my Treo tethered.
