    So, I am aware that it will cost me $20/mth to activate this service...and what im reading is that it covers 2GB/mth. What I am wanting to do it use my droid as a hotspot for my xbox 360 to connect to xbox live. Something tells me 2GB just wont get the job done here. Anu suggestions

    If you have a rooted D2, you can install a separate wireless tethering app that I'm told DOES work with XBox... if it doesn't... well... that topic is apparently verboten.

    You can download z4root in the Market, and once that's done, you download Wireless Tether, also available in the Market.

    However, if you're only gaming, 2GB's actually is sufficient for mild gaming. I noticed that one round on CoD: MW2 is only about 3-4 MB's (down+up).

    You need to root your phone. There are a ton of threads in the "hacks" section on how to do this.

    Then, just install the wireless tether app (someone here can link it if you can't find it) and start it up!

    Just be sure you know what you're getting into with rooting.

    +1! And BE CAREFUL with how much data you're using! If it gets high enough, Big Red will know you're up to something (usually tethering) and can/will charge you out the Yin Yang and may also terminate your service (still charging you the ETF).

    I read a post on another forum a few days back saying they 65GB's last month, and haven't heard anything about it.

    65GBs is just ridiculous! You MAY get away with it but, I'd rather be safe than sorry. Just my .02

    Bah, as far as big red is concerned, any usage of Wireless Tether for Root Users is the same as browsing the net and downloading big sh*t on the phone. This morning, while waiting for my flight out of Oakland Airport, I opted to tether to get my laptop online, rather than use the airport's free wifi, simply because I didn't want to deal with the "Oakland International Airport" banner frame that gets added to any site I visit.

    65GB...definitely quite ridiculous...but an average amount of Xbox gaming won't come anywhere near close to that.

    Rooting violates your warranty. Tethering violates your TOS. 3G introduces tremendous lag into your gaming, which annoys other players and degrades your gaming experience.

    Proceed with caution. This IS a $500/$600 device you're playing with. :)
