Default Storm as tethered modem is a winner

Please Login to Remove!

I just set my Storm up as a tethered modem. It was a very simple process using the VZAccess Manager. Download the software and follow the wizard.

The speed at my location when using the Storm as modem is 1.7meg down and .6 meg up. That's about 4 or 5 times faster than I was able to achieve with my Treo 600W as modem using pdanet at the same location.

I have an unlimited data plan with Verizon and modem usage is part of the deal.

It's $15/month (on top of the $30 unlimited data plan) to use your phone as a tethered modem with Verizon. If you don't pay that $15, you'll be paying per kilobyte, and that gets expensive. I suggest you contact Verizon, and make sure you have that plan before you do any more tethered browsing.

If I've signed up for this with VZW, what will it cost if I were to use it in Europe?
