Free WIFI tethering for Verizon?
 
I just bought a Touch Pro 2 from Verizon. I did a tether through bluetooth and my browser brought me to the Verizon wireless broadband page. If I connect to the internet that way, they charge by the kilobyte.
Is there a way to use the data connection from the phone to bypass this so I am not charged?

i have a Touch Pro from Alltel originally, now Verizon and i setup mine to connect to my wireless LAN at home through Wi-fi with no additional charges. On the road, I can connect to whoever is available, again with no extra charges.

theres a .cab file that turns your phone into a router. Its Tom_Codon CM WiFi internet sharing. Extremly simple to use.

Did you soft reset afterwards? If not, that's the problem.
Try using the usb cable that came with the phone instead of bluetooth.
Try a different custom rom, or if you're running the stock rom, try a custom rom.

What is "SR" that you say to install? I installed Mr. X and cab files.

I have downloaded the files mentioned in this forum, but cant seem to get things to work. I am new to the items mentioned. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Still getting directed to the link for payment for tethering.
