This phone sounds like everything I have been looking for except for the outdoor viewing weakness..Will you be able to get it with a new activation with the $6 web plan or only on the $20 plan?..also, in checking with the Sony website, will you be able to tether your laptop for basic surfing using bluetooth or their software suite?

One can get it with either the T-Zones ($5) or the Total Internet ($20, which is added after the device hath been activated). For now it tethers with either Bluetooth or a (not included) USB cable; and is only allowed with the Total Internet package. It doth take a little bit of setup, which can be found in forums dedicated to the device. However, there are rumors that T-Mobile wanteth to disable tethering in a future software update. So if tethering is desired, one may want to hold off on the purchase until further information is disclosed.
