Hey I know that there are many former BB users on here (myself included), and thought you would want to know that tetherberry has become tether and you can now sign up for an android beta (at least sign up and be notified in the future about it).

Here is the link...

Android Beta Test | Tether

i was searching market last night for "pdanet" and only the free version came up, couldn't even find the other one. But it appears that for non https connections, I can tether for $0 cost... Has the paid version of pdanet been removed or is it under a diff name?

Also, for those brave souls, some of the cooked roms for rooted droids have tethering working as well (unfortunately at the expense of other bugs like breaking the brightness settings, but im sure soon it will be perfectly worked out).

thanks droid for the clarification. So I'm guessing that if you abused tethering (i.e. used it all the time and thus your data usage was through the roof), that might in theory catch verizon's attention? I know there's nothing illegal about using that application but I also know that verizon had stated that to do tethering would be an extra 30 bucks a month and this is all for data. I guess maybe verizon or some other carrier can come down on google and ask them to remove it from market like they have with other tethering apps. But for those of us that have downloaded it already, i guess we're good to go :)

Technically it's against your TOS to use any 3rd party tethering app. But as long as you don't hit that 5B limit, they probably won't get suspicious

Tmobile's is 10GB lol. Sprint doesn't have a cap on 4G usage with their 3G/4G data card so maybe everyone will follow suit when LTE and 4G roll out. On a sidenote, if you're on a grandfathered alltel data card plan, those are unlimited. :D

You guys think my Blackberry version of Tether (used to be TetherBerry) will work on Android? Or I would need two separate license. I would think I would only need one because they sent emails out saying they will no longer using Blackberry PINs. But I could be wrong.

With their unlimited data plans on the phones (i.e. Pre plan), it's unlimited, but on the data cards (3G), it's 5G.. 4G data might be unlimited, I won't know until they roll it out in my area.. Might get their new Overdrive when my data card is due up.. :)

I got an unsolicited link to the Android Tetherberry Beta tonight. So I installed it without any difficulty and I'm using it right now to type this message. It seems they've just added an "Android USB" button to the old Tetherberry program. It works fine, if a little slow. But it certainly beats paying some hotel 15 a day just to use my notebook when I'm on the road. Although there is a Bluetooth connection button in the program, it doesn't seem to work for Android phones.

The Beta seems to be free. I don't know how long that will last. If I have to pay for a Tether app, it better have working Bluetooth.
