    I have purchased and installed pdanet on my Bionic. When I try to install it on my computer I'm prompted to enable debugging, I have no problem doing that. For some reason I can't get the Android ADB driver to load. Anyone else had this problem or know what to do to fix it?

    yes it downloads and when it starts to install it prompts me for the driver, I've even downloaded the one from this site because it don't install when I hook it up via usb: junefabrics.com/android/driver.php...however it(the icon in the bottom right hand of my screen) does say installing device driver software but it never does anything

    Does pdanet charge you? I swear it used some of my monthly minutes when I first tried it out.

    When you use PDANet, your use countd against your data allocation, not your voice minutes.

    Are you on a bionic. If so. There is a native usb tethering application that tethers via usb with no additional. Software it charge.
    Plug your bionic into your cpu
    Select mobile hotpot
    Select tether via usb
    Tether to your cpu with no additional charge
    Bonus

    Mobile HotSpot is fee-based as you discovered. I have never been able to connect via USB using Mobile HotSpot.
    1. Install PDANet onto Phone (June Fabrics PDA Technology Group)
    2. Install PDANet onto your PC/Laptop (June Fabrics PDA Technology Group)
    3. Connect your phone to the laptop (USB cable)
    4. On Phone, Settings/Applications/Development, make sure that there is a check mark in "USB debugging"
    5. Start PDANet on the Phone
    6. Start PdaNet on the PC/Laptop
    7. On the PC/Laptop, right click (or maybe if is left click) on the PDANET Icon and select (Connect or something like connect)
    8. On the phone, you may need to enable tethering for PDANet.
    You should now connect.

    Good Luck,
    Bob

    PDANet will install -- you just have to do one more step

    OK... I had problems with getting PDAnet to install on my computer once I got my new Droid Bionic (I had used PDANet on my laptop with my original Droid and loved it). I kept getting the same problems as some of you indicate above, where the driver for the Motorola Android phones did not seem to work.... it never would finish installing. Finally, in desperation, I tried the steps in the instruction paragraph that says "If your phone is a Motorola Droid X, an extra step is needed for this phone to expose the Android USB Interface. After making sure USB debugging is enabled, with your phone plugged in, go to the notifications list (I looked for awhile, and finally found the notifications list by clicking the left-most button at the bottom of my Bionic), then select USB Mass Storage. ONCE I DID THAT, it worked! I sent a message to JuneFabrics suggesting they add that info for Bionic, not just X.

    PDANet is great... just make sure you have an unlimited data plan. A few months ago, I was in a hotel that wanted $34.95 per day for wireless access.... no way! I used my PDANet and saved many $$$. Good grief though, when is Verizon going to stop this nonsense and let us use the features that are built in to our Android phones! Motorola made the phone to do tethering, but Verizon crippled it. Its all about $$$, not customer satisfaction, I guess. But, as long as companies develop software like PDANet, at least we have some options.
