Can you just use the Windows DUN? I have mine set to search for the modem device and the modem over bluetooth, and connect to first available (only works if you search for the BT modem first though).
As for the OP's question, I don't have VZ but I'm using an 8100 over T-Mobile EDGE. Speeds of the EDGE network are pretty slow (max around 300 kbps down, 60 kbps up), but hey, I'm not paying for any of it.
At EDGE speeds, it really doesn't matter whether you use BT or the USB, but it's actually *more* stable over Bluetooth. I've been connected for about 18 hours, and have pulled down over 400 MB of data (yeah, slowly at 25 KB/s for most of it, but it held the connection). I'd have disconnects over the USB every couple hours or so. It's a HUGE battery hog though, so watch out.
