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...
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.
Changing the DUN setting from @dun.3g.vzw.com to @3g.vwz.com
This was used with the Incredible, and other phones. I cant tell you exatly how to make those changes at this time... But im POSITIVE it will come up soon enough. Or you could just digg into your settings at find it.
