What does this mean?

I'm looking to buy the Palm Centro and I'm picking out my plan and got stumped.

There's an option for "Data Connect" that says either PDA personal or PDA personal add-on with CV with tethering. The one with tethering has 5GB personal email mobile browsing.

Does this mean the one with tethering I can access email and the web and PDA personal I won't be able to?

I want to understand this before I get into any contract.

Thanks.

tether

The second plan allows you to use the device like a wireless modem for a computer.

Tethering

Tethering is a tricky thing, it just a little faster than dial up. so think about how much you are going to use it before you try it.

also, it may be good to see what your provider's rules are for turning services on and off. ATT lets me turn it on today and off tomorrow.

kind of nice, I'm just prorated for the day i used the service.
