    Has anyone tried this to see if it works?

    1. Dial ##778
    2. Go into edit mode
    3. The password is 000000
    4. Once in go to M.IP Default Profile and edit DUN NAI from yournumber@dun.vzw3g.com to yournumber@vzw3g.com.
    5. Then hit menu and press commit modifications.
    6. It should then reboot.
    7. FREE WiFi!!!

    Yeah they are not setup like the old way anymore and I think it has to do with 4G.

    They are now @vzims.com for the NAI and DUN NAI is blank.

    Guess since full blown root has happend, we shall find out if there will be any charges with Wifi Teather they way it is setup now.

    I had thought about changing it to the @vzw3g.com since I am in a 3G only market anyhow. But from what people are saying the DUN NAI is not editable.

    Same with me. Did you turn your 4G off? I did and thought that might have something to do with it?
    Turned my 4G back on and it's the same. (Blank and can't edit)

    Have considered upgrading to the T-bolt...Saw that the Free WiFi hotspot was to run thru 5/15...has it ended?

    If it has ended, has anybody tried the Free Wifi Hack w/out Root trick?

    Got my "extended until June 15th" text today from VZW which is nice as we go on vacation at the end of May and naturally the "nice" hotel we are staying in doesn't offer free internet. At least this way I will be having 4G speeds to browse with! Sticking it to tha man! haha

    Those settings are now on the SIM card and not on the phone. Next step is to figure out how to edit the SIM card; on the phone, through a reader or otherwise.

    I'm going to buy the Tether app after the free trial is up. I've had good experiences with that app.

    Must be rooted to utilize tether apps... unless you mean VZW's mobile hotspot, then you are good.

    There is an app called "Tether" that I used use. I dont think it requires root access. Worker awesome on my BlackBerry!

    Has anyone else here had experience with this app? Does it in fact allow for un-rooted users to get free teathering? Thanks for the input! :)

    EDIT: I do plan on rotting once my phone comes in today, no worries! This is just going to be temporary or to help other non-rooted users save $30 if it doesn't work ;)

    Oh, sorry. The Tether app isn't free. Sorry if it came off that way. It's a pay app. On Blackberry was a one time 15 fee.

    Does this work wirelessly or do you have to connect to computer with a cable?

    USB cable. Not a big deal for me in the situations I would use it in.
