    Help me understand this please.

    Verizon charges you for the hotspot. Do they charge for USB tethering? I had put PDAnet and as I was setting it up found that I can connect to my laptop without using PDAnet. I never got a message about having to pay for tethering so will I ever or is USB free?

    Been using usb tether since I got my bionic the day of it's release . I don't download movies or stream with the USB but have never had an issue on my bill.

    There are some apps on the Market for tethering that Verizon customers are blocked from downloading because Big Red doesn't
    want you to tether at all, unless you pay them first. Keep your usage low and they probably will never look at you. But the folks
    downloading 50 gigs a month are running into a bit of a problem.....

    No app needed with the Bionic...just plug in USB and select USB tether from network settings.
