    I have the app an everything but holding down to use it as I don't want VZ to charge me the $20.

    How many of you are using it and how many GB have use so far to stay under the radar?

    Thank you!

    As long as you stay under 5gb, Verizon's "unlimited" data use, you should be just fine. I've heard stories of people use 7gb one month and only 1-2 the next, and still they won't get any notice. Verizon won't be able to differentiate whether you're using your phone or computer for your data usage.

    I use the wireless tether app sometimes when I am out. I use it on road trips so my wife and daughter can web surf on their laptops while we are on the road. I have never had any problems and Verizon can not tell that you are tethering data.

    Are you talking about 'Barnicle', 'Wireless Tether for Root Users', 'PDANet' or the hotspot work around method? All of the above will tether your computer at no additional charge except for the last one... but only if you don't perform that one correctly. And you would know if you hadn't performed it correctly because you would be directed to a sign up page before they billed you for the (hotspot) service.

    I have used all of these except 'Barnicle'. I ditched my internet service over two months ago and have enjoyed free internet through my phone ever since. First through PDANet (tethers through a USB connection), then through 'Wireless Tether' after I rooted. Everyonce in a while I'll do the hotspot work around method, but honestly I don't see much of a difference between it and 'Wireless Tether'.

    Have fun.

    I used EasyTether w/my laptop for a work emergency this evening. I was away from home and couldn't get internet access. I got onto the internet fine, but I couldn't connect via VPN, even with the VPN selection checked. Apparently you have to purchase the app for that functionality. Just $10 ... but do any of the others work w/VPN? I'm willing to pay for it if not just in case I have another situation like this evening.

    I'm not really sure about 'Wireless Tether', but I'm pretty sure 'Barnacle' does.
