    I do know that the Droid X already has a built in WiFi tether app, however you have to pay extra to use that feature and not be hit in the face with a big bill (to my knowledge). However when Froyo comes out that will bring with it, its own tethering support. Would you still have to pay the premium for this service or would it differ from the one thats pre-loaded on the phone?

    Sorry if this question is obvious but i thought i should ask it.

    You will have to pay to tether with the hotspot app on the X.

    The only way around it is to use PDAnet for Wired or BT tether
    or Root to use Wifi tether.

    On the same topic

    thought this was a decent place to post....

    I am running a rooted droid UD 5.0.1 .... It has the wireless tethering app that comes with UD...

    It works perfect on my phone....

    Dumb question.... Will i be charged for using this???

    It works great and is super fast but i want to make sure since im rooted i will not be using this.

    TIA
