Default Tetherberry Out of Beta?

Please Login to Remove!

I believe this program is out of beta now and about $39 one time fee.

Has anyone used it on the 8900 and is it even worthwhile on edge. I am with CBW. I used tethering on my 8700g and web surfing was worthless. The 8900 has a faster processor. Not sure if that will help. Skype audio and video were OK on the 8700g.

I only use it 6 days a year, when visiting family out of state.

However, if this is faster than my carrier's tethering speed due to the program specs and a faster 8900 processor, I may take the laptop to work and tether on down time.

Is the company reputable, as in refunding your money in 30 days if it is no better than my 8700g was?

Any inputs appreciated.

I have no experience with it, but was also thinking about getting it for my mac.

It's out of beta for Windows but still in beta for mac.

Yea, I read that.

Beta testing led one to believe you could get better speeds with this program than your standard carrier one. I am not buying that, but interested non the less.

I would use it more as I stated above, if it is at least as fast as the 8900.

I think some of the higher speed claims are way exagerated, and would like a 30 day free trial like a lot of software in that price range.
