    Hi ..new 'thinking of getting a Droid if I can afford it' poster.

    I just want direction and then I will read and learn.

    It looks as if Verizon wants to soak someone any chance they get.

    I wish to use a Droidx, using the hotspot feature to gain web access for my 2 desktops and one laptop.

    I know the fees (I think) ??

    Can an unlocked phone help me in avoiding some or all of these extra link up fees?

    Note ..I am a pretty good tinker..er; software and such. Thanks. :)

    Yes, a Rooted Device can obtain multiple goals that an unrooted one cannot, wireless tethering being one of them :)

    Thanks.

    I did read here that Verizon is ..blocking / not allowing wireless tethering.

    Any workaround there known? ...OR is there a STICKY I am missing that would cover all this?

    Thanks again.

    No sticky, Wireless Tethering works on a Rooted Device
