    You know I played MW2 for two hours with my droid X. And I used 42mb. Thats nothing compared to what I browse. And limited data plans can only be there for 5 years according to FCC and they have to go to a new technology.

    the one that I use is just ccalled "wifi tethering" the stock icon is a lil green signal thing....per previous threads and posts your xbox SHOULD be able to pick it up...however just make sure your not texting/calling on the phone

    ive heard if you receive a text or pick up the phone you will drop connection

    +1 for wireless tether on a rooted device and also if you're talking on phone or texting it'll interrupt your 3g connection so = no internet.

    ya i no, my X isnt rooted but if i get a txt it is interupted, & if i get a call its dropped. I played on XBox live for 2 months with my Droid X & now that i updated from 2.1 to 2.2, my previous method of using PDAnet dose not work anymore for some reason, i will try the wi-fi tether 2nite, hopefully i can get it working. So the wi-fi tethering app will work even tho i did not buy the $20 per month mobile wi-fi hotspot?

    unforutnately you have to be rooted in order for it to work, once your rooted you will not need to pay any extra each month

    honestly ive rooted multiple X's and it takes 5 minutes at most

    Maybe try EasyTether. I haven't tried it so I can't say that it will work for sure.

    im lookin for the link i used it was super easy, if anything i get home from work at 5:45 PT and i have no problem sending you the files and walkin you through it on AIM or something

    rooting DOES void the warranty, however there are several methods to unroot your phone should you need to send it back

    rooting does not change anything on your phone it simply gives you access to things you didnt have access to before ( for theming, changing ROMS, most importantly the Wireless tethering)

    I believe the rumors about rooting are all BS but that is just my opinion...I have been rooted since I got my phone and have had no problems and no over heating

    however I have heard if you play xbox live via the droid that it will get a bit warmer


    try this link : http://alldroid.org/Default.aspx?tabid=40&g=posts&m=9209&#post9209
