I have a WM6 device with Verizon...though I also have unlimited data plan (very important)
I use bluetooth dialup flawlessly with my LINUX with no tethering plan, no USB. I cancelled the plan because I learned its the exact same speed and I can get around the extra charge with tethering...(I still pay flat rate on unlimited data which is still way cheaper than tethering charge). I actually use my EEE PC as my car pc. I'm still working on my in car mobile solution project.
Check out PDAnet (http://www.junefabrics.com/pdanet/index.php). That's the program I use to do my tethering on my Moto Q9c. It's not free (~40 bucks) but it works really well.
