    I'm in the same camp. I'm considering buying a Droid and selling my S2 so i can tether, or what would be real nice would be the HTC Incredible if it gets rooted. But I'm still on contract for a while, so I'd like to just use the S2. I know there are requests for Tetherberry to develop something, but last time I checked they are working on Android functionality right now.

    Droid becomes wifi hotspot!

    Yes, tethering does work on a droid if the droid is rooted/jail broken. I rooted my droid and am running an app that turns the droid into a wifi hotspot. It so cool! I can have my droid phone upstairs in my house and I can be browsing thru the wifi hotspot while sitting on the sofa downstairs. Much better than blue tooth tethering. It also has security features to prevent unauthorized users from surfing thru the droid hotspot. I would caution people who do this to refrain from using the verizon signal excessively. Don't want to bring attention to what your doing.

    While I am new to the tethering realm, according to several reviews the HTC Incredible will have officially supported tethering built in. No word from Verizon on pricing but it might be a good way to go.

    I also have the storm, and the only thing I have come across is tether berry. The problem-the app is 50.00. I am hoping for an early upgrade coupon this fall around the same time the iPhone comes to VZW

    I've successfully tethered my iPad and IPod touch to my Samsung Omnia (Windows Mobile) using WMWiFiRouter.

    I highly recommend WMWiFiRouter to anyone using Windows Mobile.

    I am no expert on these things. Up until now I didn't have a reason to jailbreak my iPhone. Following the tutorials above I was able to turn my iPhone 3G into a wifi hotspot without too much trouble.

    Good luck.
    +1. This is a quick and painless solution.

    This may be a dumb question, but does this affect later updates for the iphone? Can we still install the new ones from apple?

    If you upgraded to 3.1.3 then you're out of luck.

    You can always try downgrading to 3.1.2, but if you donít have your 3GS 3.1.2 hashes on file with Cydia, youíll need to wait 3.1.3 out and see what happens with 4.0.
