OK I got my Droid 2 with 2.2 just yesterday. The reason why I got this phone was for the reason of being able to use the wifi hotspot with my phones 3g. I didn't want to have to use the teathering cord, since I did that with my Omnia. It was decent to say the least, but I always had to have my cord with me or I was out of luck. With this wifi hotspot option I fell in love immediately. However now I am being told that I must purchase an additional package on top of my unlimited usage package. That just doesn't settle well with me at all.
After doing some reading on here for the last couple of hours I have managed to do one thing, and that is to confuse myself on what exactly is needed to accomplish wifi hotspot without having to add the extra package through verizon. I see people saying root this, and do this, or do that. There are a couple of different ways to do one thing or another. Download this, noooo, download that.. I am really confused now lol.. Someone please just tell me on here what EXACTLY I am looking for here.
I just want to use my phone and its 3g connection like a wireless router for any pc, or ipod etc. without having to buy the lame 2gig package on top of my unlimited data plan.
Thanks in advance for any info you can give me.
Also I seen some files suggested that were named for older versions of the Droid 2. Does this mean that they won't work for the 2.2? This is another thing that had me confused.
