    I know some of you are wondering if it's possible to tether with your android phone. The answer to this question is, YES, it is possible.

    To do it just follow these steps.
    1. Go to this website
    PdaNet -- USB Tether/Bluetooth DUN for Android
    2. Download software (make sure you unplug your phone from the computer first)
    3. Follow directions on screen
    4. Make sure you turn on pdanet on the phone everytime you want to use it and connect using the icon on the bottom right of your windows computer.
    5. Enjoy your free tethering

    If you want to do more than just go to websites after the trial expires, you will need to pay a one time fee of $29 to get the full version of the software.

    This is not meant for the application thread. I have moved it to the droid hacks section.

    I know it is an application, but i meant, this is not a topic of conversation meant for the application thread. We do not support such applications, so it got moved to the hacks section. Seeing as it skirts, not having the ability natively (and actually having to pay for it), whether or not it's an application, we put it in the section that has our disclaimers on the top, whether you read them or not is your choice.

    Think again...It's a way around VZW policy on tethering (IMHO illegal)....So it's a Hack.

    But in all, it is an APPLICATION that you install from the market. Hacks section should be reserved for actual hacks... at least in my opinion...

    "illegal" no. A way to get yourself a huge data fee, yes. I know someone who used this all the time and got hosed by vzw for data overages. I use it occasionally, but I don't use it enough to feel that I need to pay the tethering fee.

    30 days, one time fee. I wouldn't over use this though, as they will hammer you when it gets suspicious.

    Call and ask VZW...if it's not illegal they should allow you to do this...Right?

    Ugh.... Illegal means criminal. Thus it isn't illegal. It is a violation of the TOC. Not that complicated.
