i just got froyo and was wondering about the tether which i heard droid wasn't suppose to get.. how does it work do you just hood it up to your laptop or desktop and you ready to roll or what???
So basically we have to pay the 39 for the unlimited data and an additional 20 for just the tether......I hope Verizon is reading the when I say that B.S. This is the kind of crap why people cancel and go with a different provider or root there phone. But hey i guess thats the way the world goes round companies and people screwing each other over..!
ha, even the data isn't truly unlimited. Verizon can terminate you for abusing their network with high usage (who knows where that point is) or can likely assume that you're using a 3rd party app and tethering against your TOS if you use a large amount of bandwidth.
Even after contacting Verizon I'm still confused...! I have the original Motorola Droid and I received the new froyo update this morning, after going through the new features I discovered that I had a Tether option. I hooked it up to my laptop and checked it and got a screen saying that I had to call Verizon at their 800 number. The regular customer service folks couldn't help me out saying that my account didn't show that I could tether my phone so I was referred to a special tech, and he told me that my phone couldn't use that feature, however he recommended an app. After downloading the free app, it works fine but the speed isn't the same as when I attempted to use the tether option off the phone. Anyone else out there told the original Motorola Droid can't use the tether option?
ha. Wouldn't surprise me that Verizon released an update with a feature you can't even use cause they couldn't find a way to track it. And wonder how long it'll take the mods here to edit out the 3rd party tethering app from your post. They're way too trigger happy around here. It's funny that Verizon reps will recommend the apps but any mention of them gets deleted on here.
