    pdanet does not work on the blackberry. It is a great product that I used with my treo. I didn't like mobishark. Tetherberry works alot better than mobi.

    Interesting you say that....i was on the CB site and it seems more people are going towards pdanet rather than Tetherberry. Only problem I read was that for some running the trial version it wiped there phones but it seems its about 1 out of every 30 people give and take. But other than that they say its about the same if not quicker. Layout (tray) is more professionally done than TB. hmmmm

    Have to agree, I have had Teatherberry since it was in beta, never had a problem, pretty quick and as long as you dont use it to download os updates daily (ha) i dont think you should have a problem with your service provider. Make sure your service provider is truly unlimited as most of them will shut you down if they see you going near 5gb on a monthly basis. Even though they say their service is unlimited it really isnt, at least thats what i have found out with Verizon. But i only use it if i have to when free wireless isnt available. It's great for occasional use but i dont think you will get away with tethering on a regular basis.... IMO
