    yeah i have both barnacle and wireless tethering apps, but for some reason i've only gotten them to work intermittently. still curious about the usb tethering tho, cause i know some people have been using it without having to pay

    if you use the usb tether built in to froyo you will have to pay verizon the monthly fee( i think it is $30 per month) if yo use an app like pda net, wireless teher for root users, or any ofthe other apps on the market they are either free or a one time charge. i personally us the wireless tether for root users and have no problems with it. hopes this helps.

    EasyTether is cheaper than PDAnet and works on non-rooted. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

    Wireless tether and PDA.net both work for me. Curios though, is wireless tether simply creating a AD HOC?

    Use WIRED Tether For Root Users, problem solved.

    PDAnet and Easytether kills SSL connections after a certain time and you gotta pay a one time fee to activate SSL.
