    Maybe I am missing something here... but I can tether my phone perfectly fine with my macbook pro without any special apps or hacks.

    I pair the phone with the laptop and in the settings i set it up with a default Bluetooth DUN configuration with a blank telephone number. Account name of (phone number)@vzw3g.com and then set the password to "verizon". Connect and it works fine. Why is everyone using all these apps and hacks to do this when its not needed?

    I used to do this with my old XV6700. Works just fine. Back then it used to be just (number)@vzw.com. Before 3G came out. Funny enough, a Verizon rep on the phone told me how to do this.

    Go to any wal-mart and you can get a Bluetooth Adapter for a PC that goes into a USB slot for 20$ I'm sure there are tons of options online as well. I use mine for using a BT headset with VOIP software. works great.

    Then you will need to root your Droid and flash the wifi tethering kernel.

    But not everyone needs to tether to anything other than their computer, so this is a great bit of information.
