    well if you cant find something for usb tethering. You can just plug you phone into your pc and that will keep it charged while its doing its wifi thing

    I haven't looked for any free apps, other than PDAnet. The only problem with PDA net is after 15 or 30 days, you have to pay their one time fee or cannot view any secure (https) sites. It would work for me fine except my company's site is https, so I use WIFI and plug it into the car when I can.

    I'm new to rooting and was wondering is this tethering app you are looking for free? Can verizon find out you are using it? Will you get billed for tethering like this? I know these are nooby questions but I think this is where I can ask.
