I've heard a tethered modem connected on using Verizon's software is very unreliable. I was looking at a HTC Ozone and planned to tethered it once in a great while to my laptop. Is a tethered modem connection that unreliable? Can you not use Verizon's connection software? Thanks!
If Verizon didn't strip the wifi from your HTC Ozone your can download an app that will enable you to use your phones wifi as a hotspot. I don't know what the app is called for WinMo, I have JoikuSpot on my S60 phone. Look on wmexperts.com. And of course it probably wouldn't be a good idea for Verizon to know. They just want to nickel & dime you.
I was looking more at using the Ozone as a modem through the cell connection not the wifi. I could do that with my Treo 750. The Wifi will be nice at a couple of places around here. I'm not buying the phone from Verizon. But, I will make sure it has wifi when I buy it. Thanks for the heads up and reply.
For what it is worth, I had T-mobile (still do, for that matter) with unlimited data plan and an HTC phone running Windows Mobile (that phone is gone, along with the unlimited data plan). At the time I was able to be on the www the whole way across New Mexico as my wife drove!
