    Question Easytether vs PDAnet

    Does anyone have information on which one is better and why you think so? I will purchase one of them, but not sure if I'm missing something by getting one or the other.

    thank you!

    Pdanet is free; I know some one using easy tether and he says it works just as good. Pdanet will cost 20 bucks for the key to use for secured sites. Easytether is free and you can connect to secure sites as well.

    I am currently using PDA and I like it.

    i use wiredtether which works on rooted phone that run p3droids/bekits kernel.

    Its the easiest no need for software on any comp just plug in to usb hit the app and it auto installs a small file on comp and bam just works

    Pdanet costs $30 and the only version of easytether that is free is the "lite" version which does block HTTPS or secured sites. A free trial does offer access to HTTPS but stops working after some time. They are both pretty similar in this regard.

    To the OP: It seems the only advantage PDAnet has over easytether at the moment is bluetooth DUN although easytether says they'll offer this feature "soon".

    Another consideration in regards to PDAnet is that they offer products for other types of handsets. So, say you leave android in the future for blackberry or one of their other supported devices, they offer an upgrade path to purchase a license at a reduced cost for your new device.

    I'm debating which of these I should get myself...I suspect I'll go with easytether based purely on cost. I've used both and have had no problems with either.

    Thank you all for your replies.

    I'll mull it over some more. Still not quite sure which one to choose. But I guess that's a good thing that both of them are good programs.

    I don't have a rooted phone.

    I'm having exact same issue.

    Instead of paying all this money just root and wifi tether


    ((or is that different? Isn't that a lot better than wired connection? And is it free?? Thanks!))

    Im pretty sure a wired connection will always be faster than a wireless providing they come from the same source. Dont quote me and correct me if im wrong

    Well, I have done the root thing and wifi tether but I keep going back to wired for one simple reason: the phone charges when wired and wireless tether sucks the battery pretty hard.

    I have the free PDAnet thing so what's the difference between that and paying 30 dollars?
