    WiFI hotspot from Verizon is free until May 15th, and works very well.

    I noticed very slow speeds and issues trying to post to forums with Wireless tether.

    I used Barnacle with my D1 and had no issues. I haven't had a chance to try it with my TB yet...

    PDAnet here too, free for now, better than Easytether that was 9.99...easytether won't let me vpn to my companies network, pdanet does...you use usb cable, even on 3 G I CAN TAKE AND MAKE PHONE CALLS,while tethered...

    I tried a couple different versions with no luck and then 2.06 did it for me.

    I recommend barnacle just because the units are KBps not kbps...1000KBps is 1MB...excellent quality songs in the year 2011 are around 10-12MBper song...easier to think of how fast it it is my head

    And encryption works well on it. Changed ssid as well

    Just use the wifi hotspot built in ... it does the same if not better than all the market apps. when the FREE period is over you can simply go into the ##778# menu and make a simple change and verizon will never SEE that you use it.
