    Why would you need this? My AT&T Bold tethers perfectly fine with my Thinkpad… Voice and data at the same time too!

    Still don’t get it. The FAQ states: How is your software different then normal tethering?
    We do not have connection limits, no proxy settings, up to DSL speeds and works with almost every internet based piece of software without modification.

    How do you not have connection limits when I’m still going through my carrier? Is it because you are not using the isp.cingular servers so they dont monitor the usage? (I assume you are going to BIS, BES or some other proxy?)

    I bet this violates the TOS for vzw and most other providers.

    I tried it, and while it’s easy to use, it’s slow. Tethering with a regular dial up networking connection I get 3Mb down, and with this software I was only getting 800k?????

    Gotta agree with ed, this has got to violate some contract term or condition.

    While it would be cool to have free tethering, and if usage was light you’d probably fly under the radar, but no doubt some foolish idiot will soon have his laptop up and sucking down torrents watching sling/hulu/whatever and the carriers will either find a way to block it, will terminate customers, will sue these creators for creating something that bypasses their for pay service, or some combination thereof.

    It depends on the carrier. I used a similar app called PDAReach on Sprint for two years with no trouble but I did not abuse it. Greedy VZW won’t wait for abuse. they’ll figure out how this app works and filter the traffic.

    You’d have to encrypt traffic or else they can sniff browser agent strings and know people are using laptops. You can build an encrypted tunnel and proxy but they would soon find the IPs of your proxies. You’d then have to randomize IPs and ports used but then they can measure how much non-port-443-ssl encrypted traffic they are seeing and block that. It could become an arms war.

    Arms race? Yeah, I meant an arms race.. whatever.
