    Has anyone found a way to tether one of the new Verizon Droid phones to the IPad? Specifically, I have the Ally VS740. :(

    If it can be done:
    • Will I need to modify my Verizon plan?
    • What kind of cable will I need and where can I get one?
    • What are the costs for this?
    Thanks for any help!

    i do this all the time.

    follow directions here to root phone

    How to Root from 2.1 - Android Forums

    its stupid proof for the most part.

    a lot of people get into doing a lot with their rooted droid and some of the custom ROMs really cause problems on the phone.

    I just rooted the base ROM, added wifi tether (free!) and go with it. I use it all the time w/o issue.

    can connect up to 5 systems to your phone.

    Like with most things about the Droid it works when it wants to.

    Sometimes I get really great fast connection...sometimes it wont even get online.
