    Yep, but you have to pay extra for it (or root). The wireless tethering feature on your phone will take care of it.

    Xoom comes with Honey Comb which includes native wifi tethering. I have a 1GB/month data plan and it DOES NOT COST EXTRA to use the hotspot feature. Just tried and works great.

    Maby I was not clear about tether

    I have an app on my Droid X that allows me to tether it via its USB charging cord to my laptop and get to the internet though the phone 3g.
    I want to be able to do that with the xoom so I dont need to pick up yet another plan.

    You will want to enable wifi tethering on your Droid X and connect the Xoom to that network. If you are rooted, just download "Wifi Tether for Root Users."

    Xoom Blue Tooth tether with Droid X Question

    I followed the instructions in your link and appear to have connected my Xoom to my X through BlueTooth. Questions is, do I ever have to disconnect them? Can you be connected to 2 blue tooth devices at the same time i.e., xoom and BMW? Maybe a dumb question but...

    Thanks,

    HP, I've tethered my xoom to my droid x but I still can't get the internet to flow to the xoom. When I visit a webpage on the xoom it says unable to connect. Xoom shows a successful pairing and tethering. Could verizon be blocking it in the droid x?

    Bluetooth. It pairs right up and gives you the option to internet tether, but it still can't pick up an internet signal even though the droid x gets its internet fine.

    On page 1 of this thread is a link with directions, did you follow that? I don't think it's as easy as just pairing from the way the directions are. I have my x rooted and use wireless tether.

    The first item on the list of instructions doesn't exist, at least not on 3.1. There is no 'tethering' option on wireless settings.
    I did turn on airplane mode and off wifi, but it still could not resolve a websites DNS.
