    When I'm at work on lunch breaks (like right now, as a matter of fact!) is about the only time I Tether, unless my internet goes down at home, which is next to never.

    I'll tell you guys what. When I first got PDANet I used it a lot at work (they are funny about us using company computers for personal use, but they don't care at all if you bring in your own device). After the novelty wore off, I really only use it when I have to do something on the internet that requires a PC. The Droid is so awesome that I can do 95% of the things I want to do on the phone itself.

    If the keyboard was like a BB keyboard, I don't know that I'd really tether at all. The only time I really need the PC is when I'm typing out a long email or message board post. My hand cramps up on those on the Droid.

    It's my exclusive internet access at home, but since I have a good connection at work all day, looking at my computer is the last thing I want to do at home.

    So even with it being my only access I would have to say I use it about a total of 1-2 hrs a week. With an occasional night thrown in there where I'll surf for several hours researching or reading.

    Nothing data intensive

    Very rarely do I tether. And when I do, it's usually wifi tether for my brothers with their iPod touches. They think it's the coolest thing in the world. Little need for me to tether to a computer -- my Droid can do almost anything it can. :)

    Can you still use your phones while tethering?

    I tether all day at work. Our computers are heavily monitored and filtered. I have a non-networked computer that I connect to and I go through 3-4GB per month.
