Strangely enough, the only complaints I've heard about t-mob GPRS
(aside from whininess about the 800ms latency typical of GPRS)
involved a protracted effort, eventually successful, to get them to
understand that having *something*, *anything* in the for
their address pool was a Good Plan...  and that was a year or two ago.

The ssh client for the Danger Sidekick is extremely popular, and I
don't think it would be if the scenario you mention above were true.
