    I recently joined the rooted Droid X family and I was wondering how I can tether my laptop to my droid.

    To all of you who use the tether, does it cost cash or does it go towards the phone's wireless data?

    If you are rooted and use an app like barnacle tether... uses data and avoids extra charges.

    Wireless tether works whether you are rooted or not. But the performance is questionable, at last for me.

    Easytether requires that you root, but works fantastic!

    No extra charges from Verizon.

    Good luck.

    Jz.
