Froyo and Wifi hotspot

any news on having wifi hotspot ability for free with Verizon ?
I am thinking of getting the incredible, but that's the most important feature for me.
Been googling and going through this forum. Lots of contradicting info and also outdated.

My 2 cents... Verizon supporting free WiFi hotspot is never going to happen... options are pay $20, root, pdanet, or easytether.

I've had it on my Touch Pro 2 without problems. I figured that they had finally come to terms that it is widely done.
I am a newbie with Android. Is rooting for the Android what is jailbreaking for the iphone ?

Thanks

Re: Froyo and Wifi hotspot

Actually you can follow these steps to enable hotspot tethering
  • from your phone, dial ##pst - Press Call
  • click "edit mode"
  • enter security code 000000
  • scroll down to Security
  • change the "S.IP DUN User Name" to "<your phone number>@vzw3g.com"
  • hit back
  • scroll down to "M.IP Default Profile"
  • change "DUN NAI" to "<your phone number>@vzw3g.com"
  • press menu, choose "Commit Modifications."
  • The phone will power cycle.
I took that directly from xda-developers
