    Has anyone been able to tether to a Toshiba Thrive tablet using an USB cable? I can USB tether to a Windows notebook with no problem. The Thrive has both the regular and mini USB ports, but I can't seem to make it work. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!!

    ditto question, steps to tether Thrive via USB to Driod

    Would love to tether via USB to avoid paying more $$$ to Verizon. One would think that an Android device could talk to another Android device! thanks for any help you can provide!

    Another alternative is FoxFi in the market. I use it to share my Bionic connection with my Asus TF101 when needed.

    Because the stock hot spot will be better than any third party app any day of the week cuz the hot spot was specifically coded an compiled for that device no 2 hot spots on 4g devices are the same I have seen much better signal with the stock hot spot than any other 3 party app

    Foxfi works great for me. I've connected various laptops, iPads, my Asus Transformer, and more. Haven't failed to connect any device yet.

    Thats what I use to use. Worked great for what I needed. Trying to put it back on my new phone and I cant seem to get it working. Kinda frustrating. When i go thur the stock hotspot app it connects. But doesnt seem to have any internet access. Hopefully Ill figure something out later.
