    I've just rec'd the Droid Incredible 2 and am wondering if PDANET will work? I have an unlimited plan with Verizon and wonder if there are any repercussions should I find a need to use it? Thanks.

    I've never done this before and was'nt sure if the should be a post or thread. Please advice

    Just wondering: I see that there's a feature called "Mobile Broadband Connect" when I connect my DInc2 to my pc. If I can use this to use my phone's 3g service for my computer (which I'm assuming is its purpose), what would you need pdanet for?

    There is a fee for Mobile Broadband Connect.

    How does that work? Do they charge by the hour or is it on a monthly basis? I used to use Easy Tether on my Eris; is pdanet free now?

    You have to pay for the mobile wifi hotspot to have access to the tether. It charges against your 2 GB allowance in data for the hotspot. PDANet is free, but the paid version will give you access to secure sites (https:://)
