First of all, thanks to all of you who have posted very informative replies. I have a question: I've spent about an hour researching it online, but haven't found a definitive answer. I'm planning to buy a Droid X and use Verizon for service. Am I correct in assuming I could Bluetooth-tether my Archos 70 to a Verizon Droid X and not have to pay for the additional tethering data plan that Verizon charges? I know from reading these forums it can be Bluetooth-tethered--I just need to know if I'll need to pay that nasty monthly fee for doing it!
Thanks much, in advance, for an answer!
I have Droid X and Verizon ... but a 101. It takes some repetitive tries, and fast fingers, but I got it to bluetooth tether PAN. Once you get it paired, it is automatic and easy from then on. I know they charge for Wifi tethering, but only that. Otherwise, no fees, and I don't see how they could determine what you do with bluetooth. Some high tech person can confirm that here, but I'm fairly confident about that.
I gotta say it's wonderful. Along with GPS tethering, it's great fun traveling. But also just say, sitting in a doctor's office ... it's nice when tethering gets you online!
Added note: to make it work, you MUST turn off WIFI on the tablet and phone. It will NOT work if they are on. You don't need wifi on phone or pad if WiFi isn't available. If it is you just go direct with Wifi and the tablet (duh).
