    I received a laptop for Christmas and am wondering about tethering this to my Droid 1. I see in my settings, under networks that they is a tethering area that says that I can do this. I have read in the past that this was basically against the rules.
    If I do tether, is there an app that you would suggest for tethering?
    Can you please explain how I would go about tethering my phone and computer as I am learning as I go.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    On the same topic, does Verizon charge for occasional tethering?

    Thank you for the tip.
    On that note, with the "tethering " in the networks / wireless in the settings section on my Droid, do I need to use an app to perfom this function?
