    Default Easy Tether Lite good for newbies?

    Easy Tether just released Easy Tether Lite, a free version with no HTTPS until you buy in. I see no recent ET chat, but knowing nothing about tethering other than Id love to turn off my cable connection someday, Im just curious if ETL is good place to stick my toes in the water...

    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

    Optimus S from Sprint, who from all Ive heard looks the other way as long as I dont get carried away with it. They offer their own plan to tether for 30 bucks a month, but that adds up.

    I wonder if yesterday’s update to 2.2.2 did anything to disable this -- other threads have said that about similar apps.

    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

    Thanks goodness I have Sprint.

    Before I actually try Easy Tether Lite, I have to ask if PDANet, or something else, is a better choice.

    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.

    Are you referring to their EasyTether drivers ? If not, please set me straight. And I like your idea of keeping the client on your SD.

    Yes, that is correct. They call it a driver, but it is actually an app that runs on your pc. The core for xp/w7 has the driver in it, it will install both driver and the app.
