Worked well for me when I lost electricity last year in a huge storm. gas generator + my Droid+ easy tether kept me from going into internet withdrawl
Who is your carrier? it seems ATT has been capping and cracking down as of lately with Verizon quietly only capping/slowing the worst offenders

With Sprint and Friends, data seems to be pretty open still, but you never can tell. Better to play within the rules as much as possible for your sake, but if not, I find Easy Tether gets better battery life than wireless hotspot, or wireless anything, really.

ET Lite just won't allow you to use any sites that use HTTPS as you mentioned so you have to descide if you sue them a lot or not. ii
I use HTTPS on my Google Email so that would not work for me. I have used ET though and it works perfect. I now just tether via wireless.
As for the AT&T issue I heard that you simply tell them you use Pandora a lot and they will accept that as a reason. ii

i'm using ET pro. have been for a long time. $10 bucks once is better than sprints $30 a month. You also have to install a client onto your pc. I keep the x86 and 64 bit client saved to my sd card so if I'm ever on someone elses laptop and they or I need to have net on it. I use it mostly for backup net service at home, and on the road were no wifi network is available. Sprint Evo 0004 no root.
