    so i am an complete newb.. basically rooting a droid is just like a jail-broken ipod? right.. and also when you root a droid i have seen people got the teather app for free.. do you get to use that completely for free? or do you still have to pay for teathering through Verizon (would like to know so i dont get this outragious amount on my next bill).

    also what all does a root do??

    thanks in advance for the answers

    I guess u can say its the jailbreak process of android. And yes there is a free wireless tether app for rooted users.

    Oh and no, with the tether app you should not get charged since its separate from verizon. I've been using the app forever and havnt got charged extra. As far as the native usb tethering feature goes I'm not sure. Just research around a bit.
