    Doesn't PDAnet require a companion PC program?

    Do you have that? Is it set up to enable USB?

    Yea, as long as you have pdanet on your phone and pc, and you enabled usb debugging, it should work.

    I'm trying to decide between PDAnet and EasyTether myself. From my searching, it looks like EasyTether gets better speed to the connected PC/laptop. But I'm also seeing some reports of EasyTether connections being slowed down as of late, and that Sprint could be getting wise to these alternative tethering programs. Can anyone confirm? Also does EasyTether require a companion PC program like PDAnet?

    I do have the companion app foe the PC and run that wen I run it on my phone but is of true that it has to be selected for charging and not tether to work. I usually set it on the bottom selection which I think is tethering. Will it work if I choose charge. Thanks everyone.

    Maybe that's y it isn't working that doesn't make sense tho shouldn't it only work if it is in tethering mode. So to be clear it only works in charge mode.
