    Can someone confirm that you can tether with USB on 2.2? If you cannot, I will have to root the phone....

    thanks....

    no. each phone gets it's own separate software upgrade.

    Q: for anyone who has done this update, are you still able to use apps for tethering or are they disabled/blocked after the update?

    i ask because at the moment i need the tethering while on vacation, but i am dying to try out 2.2

    Okay this one is bizarre: the new 2.2 tethering works fine, no issues. Even works when you RECEIVE a call, you can still surf no problem. But, if you are surfing and MAKE a call, Internet dies. Any ideas out there to help me out? Its my wifes phone, which as many of you know, when mama ain't happy, nobody happy...
