    i installed/paid for the PDANet on my Droid- and it works great! awesome! ... then after a bit of run time my phone 'locks' up... and i dont mean lock up like i have to hard restart it or it force closes... what it does is that the send/receive icon at the top it still shows im connected to the 3G, but the arrows are locked on send... and after about 15-30 seconds the send arrow clicks off and i can continue doing what i was previously doing...

    any ideas on why this is happening?

    my droid and pdanet are up to date, and my comp is running xp...

    and i did try to contact the pdanet tech people... but after 2 days of waiting im getting kind of antzy on a fix =D

    thanks!:thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking::thinking:

    We used PDANet on a Droid Eris and had the same problems all the time.
    I rooted the phone and installed a ROM with wired tether and it works great. No problems like PDANet. Expensive lesson!!

    Well i've decided to go ahead and root my phone... the wireless tether and the wired tether sound awesome... but i want to keep my 2.1 ... and every thing i checked has me going back to 2.0... which is fine... except i like the pinch zoom and the voice to text... but everywhere ive been either has broken links or talks about the wrong phone... ... any help would be appreciated!
