    Big Red says that Droid 1 with stock froyo can't support wifi tethering

    Did anyone else catch this?

    Seriously, is anyone else (who has a rooted droid 1 currently running 2.2 and wifi tethering) loving this news? The way that I am reading it, Big Red says that since my phone "can't" tether this means they cant charge me for it. Seriously, how are you going to charge me for something that my device "can't" do? I love the idiocratic thinking of executives who assume they are smarter than the average college kid with a laptop and time on his hands.

    If this keeps up, I will never upgrade my phone.

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

    I saw that this morning. Our Droid 1 phones just don't seem to have the hardware to support wifi hotspot type abilities.

    I read that and said whaaat?

    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.
