What happened?? I must have blacked out there sorry LOL Maybe an indicator fo how busy I've been the last couple of years or so. Anyway, that phone at the time was an original Droid, and worked for me fine, including both USB tether and WiFi tether, all the way up to a month or so ago. It still works and is my backup to my new Razr Maxx HD (locked but rooted).
Currently having trouble getting my Ubuntu 12.04 laptop to see my WiFi Tether app (Google Play store). USB tether using ClockWorkMod app is not much better... I can connect, but the speed is <1Mbps. And I've speed tested the phone itself... up to 10Mbps (using Internet Speed Test for any Laptop, Desktop, Mobile, or Tablet Device).
What gives? Is this how VZW wins?? This is a 4G phone. I should be able to tether at 4G, right?
Thanks and yeah, never looked back LOL
