Wireless tether Q.
Hello fellow DINC owners. Quick question on wireless tether.
i have the FusionIce ROM, http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dro...ncredible.html
wondering if i install Barnacle Wifi Tether would it run properly on the ROM?
also, no matter how much i search i cant tell if i get charged through verizon to send my 3G to my laptop through the tether.
Don't know about barnacle specifically...try it and find out.
I use wireless tether v2.0.7 with fantastic results...and no, in my experience the big V wont charge you extra for using it.

+1 and I have done several theme variations of it too :)
If you're referring to the 3G Mobile Hotspot, its $20 per month for 2GB.

The barnacle wifi tether may, i have not tried it. But theres really no need to install either since you can just go into the settings and turn on/off the hotspot from there. I actually downloaded a widget to turn it on/off from the home screen which makes it much easier. And as far as getting charged extra from verizon goes, if you signed up with them for the hotspot service then yes you pay extra.But if you just root your phone, which you obviously have, then you can wifi tether w/out extra charge. Im actually on my laptop right now using the wifi from my phone. It works great. So no you will not just automatically be charged extra by verizon. Hope that helps!

so now i have a question. i tried to use wireless tether app and whenever i do it always gives me an error and will not allow me to use the hotspot at all when i have that app installed. Do you know why that might be?
