    So I was going thru the menus in FroYo and decided to try the USB Tethering option. Didn't expect it to work, but it did! No longer need pdanet now.

    I would still use pdanet cause there is no telling what Verizon will do if they find out that you are using usb tether. I know they are not like AT&T but there is still no telling.

    Ummm, please explain the difference between using PDANet or the Google app. Aside from the cost, the have the same effect. If you think using PDANet will somehow protect you from Verizon if they decide to start going after tetherers, you are in serious need of a reality check.

    I wasn't saying there is a huge difference. Just a little one but it is up to him with which one he chooses. Also there is no cost. Pdanet is free and so it the program for the computer. If he doesn't want the program then let him use the tethering option that came with 2.2. And also how am I in need of a reality check? Just because I try to be a little safe with my phone doesn't mean I need a reality check.

    PdaNet for Android Purchase Agreement

    Explain the free part of $23....

    You seem to think that one specific app will protect you from the wrath of Verizon if they decide to go after tetherers.... This alleged "safety" you speak of does not exist. That's where you need a reality check.

    The thought did cross my mind, but I think it's the same as using pdanet too.
