    When is Metro due to release the Blackberry Curve 8530?

    I suspect the Curve 8530 will still support third-party tethering apps, MetroPCS is simply denying that they exist.

    They may even ask RIM to block them from App World on Metro BlackBerries, but if Metro does anything overt, it will probably be a test for RIM to appease other larger carriers.
