A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.

I have been using pdanet, to tether to my netbook, for about a week now. It works great! I think as long as I don't try downloading large files and just stick to surfing, VZ should never even know. I guess we will see.
I have used it for over a month now. I use it on my desktop computer, because I live in a rural community where we are just lucky to have DSL. The speed on my phone is 3 times faster then the DSL. So, I cancelled my DSL and just connect my phone when I want to surf on my desktop. I don't download anything, and have heard other people using around 10 G a month with nothing happening to them.
I tried out PDANet last night for a bit. It worked great and the speed was very good. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and I didn't have to reconfigure anything. PDANet Modem popped up as a WiFi connection and you just connect to it just like you would connect to WiFi anywhere else. I wouldn't try downloading anything huge because of the whole VZW ToS stuff, but for normal surfing it seems ideal.
i use it and have been using it, i had it on my blackberry never saw a charge for it, cause verizon has no real idea bout how your using your phone, for all they know you could be spending all day on youtube watchin videos
