Sorry if this has been addressed, but I've seen conflicting reports on this. I have a stock Bionic with the .893, and I'd like to know if I use USB tethering, will I be charged automatically for an extra monthly fee? Or is it free?
An app called pdanet will allow you to USB tether. Its free to try or $9.95 for the full. I have used it and it works well.
It was pulled from the market awhile back, but I checked and it is there now.
You can USB tether on the bionic using the stuff in Wireless options. A few weeks ago I stumbled on this and made a topic about it. I was under the impression that vzw charged for USB tethering, but I've been able to do it freely for a while.
It is either a Bionic or LTE feature. Cause the other 3G phones don't do it without redirecting you to paying it.
I've used the USB tether a number of times with no charge. If they tried to charge me I would fight as there is no notice of an additional fee made, as there is with the mobile hotspot. (Which I still find ridiculous. I pay for the band with who are they to tell me how to use it.)
