    Sure you can. All it takes is the USB cable and an extra $30 to your friendly neighborhood Verizon.

    You really should use the search function. There are a TON of threads about tethering already, so there's really no need to start up another one. I mean this in the least bltchy way possible!

    Use discretion on this seeing as this is not something verizon allows. If caught you can face a good hefty bill.

    They're not monitoring your applications but you must know they can certainly monitor your usage.

    This is great info as I'm going on vacation and would like to bring my laptop. Will doing this hurt anything when I get back home and go online utilizing my wireless setup in my home? Also I am using windows 7, will this cause a problem??

    It won't cause problems at all man. Junefabrics is a very educated and practiced company.

    They got this thing working flawlessly.

    I got 9.03 MB Down / 1.84 MB Up - Using Verizon's 3G
