I have personally done what you describe, I always (ab)use 3G on the x2000
from stockholm to göteborg :)
When SL first rolled out 3G on the x2000 sometime around 2001 I think, I
remember probing around and figuring out that it was built on 2x3G with some
kind of embedded linux board as router and they even had a squid cache
onboard for web browsing :)

svenska tjej its the grej!

 Really, any phone you buy free and clear without
subsidy and contract should work fine as a phone with a prepaid sim

<cough>except for the fact that mobile carriers CAN do these monkey
business moves</cough>
(note that tmo seems to NOT do these things, at least in my experience
so far, limited though it may be)

I'm watching this from across the Atlantic. Oh my, your carriers have
WAY to much say in how you use your telephones.  In Sweden, noone I
know of blocks tethering, a fully paid for unlocked phone can use any SIM,
and at least one carrier (Telenor) has unlimited data plans if you get
a premium  subscription.

While we still have to pay insane beyond belief "because-we-can" roaming
charges on data in Europe, data in ones own country is fairly cheap.

Written from bus and subway (yes, 3G coverage in tunnels) in Stockholm,
with small breaks when switching vehicles.

CONGRATULATIONS!  Now should I make thinly veiled comments about
DIGNITY, self-esteem and finding TRUE FUN in your RIGHT VENTRICLE??
