    froyo wired tether prompting me to buy vzw tethering package!

    So I have been rocking .4 froyo for a couple days now... lovin it. But this morning I used the built in USB tethering under the settings menu. Once it connects to the net it goes to a vzw site and tells me I must pay for a dun package. I cannot navigate off the page, or do anything... has any one else seen this?

    Also having issues with my wireless tether program not working, but imma gonna try different kernals and that should clear that up. But I really wanted to get the froyo USB working...

    if you don't like it, please relocate to a different country.

    You need a new wireless tether .apk. There is one floating around here on the forum somewhere . MIne wasnt working but I found one that did work just fine with froyo roms.

    Use the old wired tether app instead of the built in one. Works fine then. Sorry I don't have a link to it.

    I've had good luck with this one for wired tethering: android-wired-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code

    And this one for wireless: android-wifi-tether - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Just downloaded the 'wired_tether_1_2.apk' on the download page for the project and installed it as you would any non-market app. I use EStrongs File Explorer, many other people use Astro File Manager.

    Windows 7/Vista have the required drivers to use the connection built in, if you are connecting it to an XP machine you will need to install the drivers located here: Remote NDIS based Internet Sharing Device Driver - xda-developers

    I haven't been able to get wireless tethering to work at all since I got BB/Froyo. It just says it's not available. I'm using the wireless tethering app for rooted users from the market, same as always. Any ideas?
