    The droid x can be tethered with Windows 7 using Bluetooth easily. Here is how to do it.

    Alternatively, if your computer doesn't support Bluetooth, you can use the free app PdaNet to USB tether.

    but PdaNet is slow - directly connecting to the DX's network has been amazingly fast for me

    Okay so how do you do that if your computer doesn't support Bluetooth? Exactly. All I was saying.

    One quick question (and this may be dumb) but, don't you have to have the Verizon Tethering/Hot Spot feature on your phone line to do this as well? If not, I am going to try it tonight... I will be on vacation and may need to VPN to work where there is no phone line/internet connection.

    Or, alternatively, like I said in the first place, for people who don't want to purchase any additional products, they can use the free PdaNet software and the USB cable that is included in their box. Sheesh.

    Nice! Just did this successfully with a MacBook Pro via its internal Bluetooth. When you get to the screen where is asks what sort of modem it is, you tell it its a Motorola and choose the 3g option from the pull down. Leave username and password blank. Speed test reported 0.8 Mbps down and 0.07 Mbps up.

    Sure you could. This is just another way to do it with a stock non-rooted device. Shows the flexability of the platform. :icon_ banana:

    If you guys are still looking for a way on how to TETHER for FREE (at no additional monthly charges), there is a legit and official tethering app called 'TETHER' that's for both Blackberry and Android. I had it for my BB Storm and it was WONDERFUL! You can connect by USB or BT. It is unlimited also! But hurry up because it's at its lowest price right now: 19.99! I think it's one more day remaining.
