    I would like to use my droid x to get my laptop on the internet. I only use laptop couple times a month. I have been told the pda.net app is what I need. I am not up to date on compters. Is this app easy to use or is there a better one? I have a verizon phone if this matters. Thank you

    PdaNet is pretty straightforward. You install it onto the laptop while your phone is plugged into it and follow the prompts. I think you have to have your droid x set to USB debugging mode. That's in Settings->Applications->Development.

    I am not certain, but doesn't this require root?

    PDANet WILL block secure sites after a week or 2 unless you pay the $23 for it. It might still be on sale for $15.95, but I use it and it works great. Even picks up SMS to your computer.

    I have a samsung fascinate sch-i500 droid version 2.1. I do not have tethering and portable hot spot option. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Pda net free version doesnt let you go on secured websites such as facebook ...you have to buy it ($~15.00)
