    have any of you that are rooted installed wireless teather yet? You know the one you use for free. I use this all the time, and wanted to be sure it works before I go buy this phone.

    You can try this but the devs are still working on it to verify this will stop tracking. But don't try this folks YET. And if you are just going to use tether hack lightly, you don't need to do this, and plus don't abuse the tether hack like download bittorrent off it, thats surely a way to get anyone's attention including verizon. Use common sense when tethering for free, don't overuse it!!!

    I may use wireless tethering 1-5 times a month. Guess I'm safeish.

    Now if they can just crack the data throttling...

    Am I the only one who finds this guy's videos less than 100% awe inspiring? I hope he's not offended if he's here reading this, but both videos had surprise issues in the middle of them when things didn't work. In the last video he mentioned his bionic periodically refuses to boot because it detected a security problem because he deleted stuff?

    Someone's gotta bite the bullet first, I only recorded the video while I did it my first time but it should help others to get it working! No, not offended, they call me a android-guinea-pig.

    Anyway thanks, I still have to try to hide my feathering from verizon. Since I think there going to catch us using there app for free. I was never worried about using wireless teather but there own app. Well it will do until someone figures out howww to get a 3rd party app to work.

    That's true. It did provide the information I needed and it worked! So thank you! Still, you should preface the video with the note that you are doing it for the first time. It makes the surprises much more acceptable. Thinking you'd done this a bunch of times before, the oopses made me much more worried. :)

    Cheers!

    when I connect through a windows PC or my Xoom I am getting awful connection speeds. What are your results looking like? when I run the speed test on my phone I'm getting 20+mb but when I tether i'm only getting 300-500k WTF. If any of you are getting Ok speeds what should I do?

    You should get near the 20. I only get 9/0.7 from my phone but that's what I got from my laptop too. I'm pretty far out from the city, so that accounts for me not getting 20 something.

    You know, I used wireless tether all the time on my original droid.

    But according to devs on the XDA forum, Verizon has changed the way they identify tethered data. It is now much harder to mask tethering. And they will be paying attention.

    What worries me is the potential to lose my grandfathered unlimited data if they cancel my contract, which they can certainly do if they catch me using wireless tether.

    To me, it's just not worth the risk.
