    So I have tried pdanet and easytether, neither of which seem to be working now? My friends droid can tether fine using pdanet but when I go to use it on the X it brings my laptop to a verizon page telling me I need to buy blah blah blah if I wish to use this and that. Easytethering doesnt recognize my phone to connect to, I can't get the phones drivers to install it seems right. Any ideas or help as to what im doing wrong? Thanks

    I was under the impression that Easytether was the workaround. When I had a MyTouch with t-mobile, Easytether worked just fine, and t-mobile doesn't allow tethering officially at all.

    PDA net works great on new X. Only issue is with the network. Coming over from AT&T about 3 weeks ago, I miss being able to text, answer calls and still be on the internet. But then again, its nice having cell service almost everywhere I go, which the other company was lacking.

    OK... So this may be a dumb question but... here goes.... PDA Net Cost $30 and EasyTether cost $10... is there any reason that anyone would purchase PDA Net? They both do the same thing correct? Uncapped Speeds I have tried both... and they both work.... Not sure there is any reason to pay $30 when I can pay $10....

    I'm running on PDAnets trial right now and it seems fine and worth the one time fee. I keep reading the bouncing reviews on the two and nothing has swayed me one way or the other yet, aside from the price if EasyTether works just as well (will find out after this trial expires)

    My speeds SUCK... not sure if it is the Cap by VZW ( I pay for the mobile hotspot) or if the cap is set by PDANet or EasyTether... is anyone getting decent speeds? if so... are you paying for the Mobile HotSpot? and which tether app are you using and are you using the Full version or the trial?

    You can use PDANET free if you are using it over bluetooth.

    You can only do that till the trial expires. Till then the https viewing ends with the "extended" trial.
