I just switch phones and to metropcs. I have been using 3rd party usb tethers for years. I have paid versions of both pieces of software and the their latest versions installed on both pc and phone. However I get a no connection error while trying to connect using easy tether and a request to turn on pdanet on the phone while using pdanet. I tried everything I could think of and emailed bother companies. I only heard back from easy tether who says they do not know of a work around from "some zte phones using custom firmware to deny opening the listening port on the phone." Does anyone know if this is correct? Is their a fix for it/work around or another 3rd party usb tether program that will work.
