Default Is it possible to accidently tether an lg eve?

I never made any effort to tether my lg eve. I do not even know how to do it. My question is this: is it possible to accidently tether the lg eve to a desktop pc, when trying to connect via USB cable. For example, I connect my lg eve to a desktop pc, and tried to transfer some jpgs off it. In doing so, by connect the cable, could I accidently tether the PC to this?

I think the answer would be no. :-) I never tried setting up tethering before, but am only asking because I am traveling out of country and did not want to risk this PC using my LG EVE as a modem by accident.

I thought I read somewhere that LG EVE does not support tethering, but also think I read some conflicting details elsewhere, saying it was possible.

Any how, trying to avoid more nasty roaming charges. I doubt this will be an issue for me, but figured I'd ask.

Hi there!

1) The phone when plugged into a PC does not automatically tether. 2) it is indeed possible using 3rd party apps from the Android market such as PDAnet etc. but I beleive none of these do it automatically even if installed on the phone (does not come pre-installed on handset).

Hope this helps and enjoy your trip!

Carl

That helps a lot, even to enjoy the vacation. Went a little overboard with my roaming, and then I scared myself good reading some horror stories about similar situations. Tethering really would have caused a lot of trouble. :-)

Agreed! I did the next best thing - removed the battery altogether and gave it to my wife. I did not need to bring this thing on the trip :-)

Watch dog is so much better for this.
You still need APN droid but with Watchdog you can set it up to automatically shut down your data when you reach a certain limit of your data plan.

When your data plan reset it will again automatically re-enable your data.
Plus there is a widget that give you your data usage.
