Your phone accesses the network via a specific address: firstname.lastname@example.org for normal network (based on what I've read). It uses a slightly different name for the tethering. I think Verizon has your address tied to permissions based on your plan type.

I've been stuck on Step 6 of 10 for almost a half hour. Is that normal? If I cancel it will it ... break anything?
EDIT: I canceled and got a horrible error message with an error code C101002E. If my phone is now bricked, I'm going to cry. I DESPERATELY need it for tomorrow.

Zune says I have update 7.10.7740.16 available. When I try the upgrade thing, I get and error. I don't even see Tango yet. Will I be able to upgrade to Tango from 7720, or will I have to go to 7740, then 7780 before Tango?

I know when I had the Droid X, they (Verizon) would automatically redirect you to their mobile hotspot internet page to pay for the service. Didn't matter if I was using PDAnet or Barnacle or whatever. I was always redirected to Verizon's website to pay for tethering.
Come to find out, Verizon knows if your tethering on a Droid X because the data stream comes from a different place when sharing a connection. There was a hack for that exploited by Team Black Hat where you would use the actual radio software programming that Motorola uses and you could change the data streams to where all incoming data to Verizon looked as though it originated on the phone. Ever since I found that, I was able to tether problem free.

Updated my Trophy to Tango last night, and tried tethering, and it works with changing the settings after going into the #778 menu.
Anyway, here is my issue. So far, I've received text messages from 3-4 different people and two of them now conclude with "call back at THEIR NUMBER." There's nothing in my settings that shows this is an option that I enabled.
Anyone have any ideas? I found a thread on another forum from early July, but it died quickly, and no one had an answer. Any ideas?

You are somewhat correct about tethering. Based on what I've read, your normal data connection goes through "yournumber(at)vzw3g.com", but tethering goes through "yournumber(at)dun.vzw3g.com". So anything going through the "dun" connection can get routed to Verizon's Internet Sharing subscription site. Following these instructions routes the tethered data through the same data pipe as the un-tethered data, so VZW, on there end, can't tell if it's tethered or not.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but that's what I understand from everything I've read.

Anyway, if you ask nicely I don't see why someone would be reluctant to turn it off. It's enabled by default on feature phones. I'm guessing most people probably don't even know that it's on.
