        Anyone tried the data tethering feature on the Android phones?

I have, it works.  Attaching via usb in the proper mode should attach
the umodem device which you can then use the published serial device
with the userland ppp(8).   Defining the correct section name for
tethering can be a little daunting however.

Google for things like 'telstra GSM ppp.conf' or such and then you just
have to convert any linux scripts you find into freebsd ppp.conf.   If
you're lucky you may find freebsd specific configurations.  Or, someone
on the list may have one to share.

I believe it depends on the phone manufacturer. HTC phones apparently use some kind of "Ethernet over USB" which is well supported under Windows and Linux but not FreeBSD:

Nov  1 23:20:52 betelgeuse kernel: (da4:umass-sim1:1:0:0): lost device
Nov 1 23:20:52 betelgeuse kernel: (da4:umass-sim1:1:0:0): removing device entry Nov 1 23:20:53 betelgeuse root: Unknown USB device: vendor 0x0bb4 product 0x0ffe bus uhub5
Nov  1 23:20:53 betelgeuse kernel: ugen4.4: <HTC> at usbus4

In the above messages, the kernel detaches the storage device (umass) and tries to attach the new device, which doesn't have a driver so it's attached as "ugen" - generic USB.
