It is the carrier's choice to enable tethering on Windows Phone 7 ?


A week old podcast featuring Microsoft’s Brandon Watson confirms what we have heard exactly one week go (I guess that the info originated from the same source.). Windows Phone 7 will  apparently support tethering but only if your carrier enables it (and charges you for it). This is exactly like on the iPhone and to some extend Android (when you by it with a contract carriers rip the tethering function out of the rom..).

Now the real question is: Will users be able to unlock the feature as easily as on the iPhone?

    So let’s say that tethering is possible if the carrier doesn’t get rid of that function ?
