    The Moto Droid will not be compatible with Mobile Broadband Connect at this time. So -- no tethering.

    Because I went through training this week and in our training materials it said that it is not compatible with Mobile Broadband Connect.

    So I'm assuming no support for it yet, but hopefully it will be later down the road if it receives support for VZ Access Manager.

    I would imagine soon it should support the VZ access manager, just have to write an app with some security. Shouldn't be too hard for those folks at VZ or whoever they sub it out to.

    Hey anything to make VZW a profit they will have an "app" for haha.. I'm guessing the modem support really isn't standardized. VZ Access Manager will work with just about any device as long as you have the correct modem drivers. Basically a fancy interface for a DUN.

    Sure thing! Yeah I'm definitely not a troll haha..

    I hope to learn a lot from this forum too! Our training only deals with device functionality and features.. I want to break it and fix it lol.. Obviously since I reside in tech support!

    Have you heard any rumors of MiFi being a possible feature down the road? It was something that was floating around another forum because I believe a verizon rep shot a pic of the spec and it had "adhoc - but disabled" on it

    Not really heard anything on MiFi-like abilities, but that would be awesome if there was a way...

    I think that would provide a good selling point for the phone though. If VZW offered $30 tethering and allowed the phone to tether wirelessly via WiFi - that'd be a hit!


    In terms of billing the phone would connect to the AAA using the dial up networking NAI (Network Access Identifier). This is how billing could keep an eye on that 5GB cap.

    Only thing in the way is the hardware/software limitations. If it could dial up and connect with a DUN type connection and then transmit that connection through WiFi, then that might work. The phone would still work the same I would think.
