    I realize it is semantics....but...
    It seems to make sense to me that "tether" means it has to be cable connected?

    I usb-tethered my wife's droid to my laptop using pda-net. I was so excited. I will try those wifi ones later, this sounds like more fun .

    I have never had any problems using WiFi tether. Have used it many times at work to check computers remote connections, so haven't had any reason to try something else.

    For you Verizon people...
    How much data do you move Up/Down in a day using your tether??
    How excessive do you think you will have to get to wake up Verizon?

    Anything over 5gigs will probably alert them though there are people doing close to 100GB. I talked to 3 different Verizon reps on the phone - they all said WiFi is ok as long as you keep it under 5GB. Same for my dad who got a Droid recently (except it was a Verizon Wireless store manager that told him this).

    I average about 100-200MB in a 3-4 hour tethering session. All depends on what I'm doing. Talking to GF on Windows Live Messenger takes 20MB in an hour or so, browsing websites takes a lot more. Downloading music = incredible amount.

    Thanks for the answer. Good idea now, I am running your average also.
    Are you refering to 5GB a day or a month?

    Why 5gb and not 6gb...or 4gb? There are other threads here that cover this topic but nobody has provided any link where someone used Xgb of data and was canceled or charged for excessive use. Doesn't mean they won't be, only means that nobody has yet. which brings me to my question of why is less than 5gb safe if nobody has been talked to yet or sent a warning notice?

    And to get back on topic: WiFi Tethering for Root Users here. Used it a few times. One time it wouldn't turn off so I rebooted the phone. Never looked at alternatives because what I tried worked.
    Chris

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.
