    I have a quick question.

    After I downloaded the new liberty 3.0.1 it had and updated to the new droid operating system it had a 3g mobile app installed on the phone. My question is, if I use it will there be extra charges on my phone? I have the data package but will it cover me?

    I heard that on some of the new phones if you want to use the wireless tethering you have to pay and extra 20$ a month on top of the data package.

    Can anyone help?

    In order to use wireless tether for free, flash the Team Black Hat tethering patch (search Google for it). I use that and the app Wifi Tether Beta and it works fine. On the PC you tether to the phone I'd recommend manually specifying a DNS server too, I use Open DNS's servers.

    I had a tethering app on my phone before that I found on the internet but I cannot find it again. Wish I knew where that sucker was...

    Yes you need to install the tether patch for tethering on liberty. http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/g...8-wugpacked-gb-tether-patch-all-one-zips.html once you install that you'll have a tether app in your app drawer you can use.

    Ok one more question. My buddy called verizon and asked the rep if he had to pay a monthly fee to wireless tether. The rep said that if he paid for an app and wireless tethered from it, its his phone and he can do whatever he wants to with it. They cannot stop you from doing so.

    Kind of a grey area there but if you stay under your monthly data plan you should be fine. Should I just pay for an app and do it that way? Or will I still have to pay the extra monthly fee?

    If you try to tether without installing the tether patch you will be redirected to the verizon sight to agree to pay for tethering. Doesn't matter if you buy a tether app or get one for free. The tether patch is very easy to install with your droid2 bootstrap and it will block verizon from knowing your tethering. The patch will take you two minutes to install then you won't have to worry about verizon.
    EDIT... Since your on liberty already you can boot into recovery from your power button to install the patch. Don't use droid2 bootstrap.

    Yes. Should be a tether app in your app drawer now so just open the app and try to tether with it. As long as your not redirected to the verizon page your good to go.
