Free Android Tethering

The Federal Communications Commission and Verizon Wireless have reached a settlement that will allow Verizon subscribers to use their smartphones as Wi-Fi hotspots at no extra charge.  You can get more information about it here.  I have done a lot research into Tethering.  Here is a list some application you should check out.

EasyTether Lite

The description in the GooglePlay store states that EasyTether can tether to Windows, Mac OS X, Ubuntu, PS3, WII, and XBOX.  I had no problems getting it working with OS X.  I have the pro version which is $9.99.  The difference between Lite and Pro is:

EasyTether Lite will block secure (https://, TCP port 443) sites (such as gmail, facebook, amazon or ebay) and any UDP-based applications (including L2TP VPNs, most instant messagers and Xbox 360 / PS3 / Wii games) after some time. The paid/activated versions have no such limitations.

PdaNet

I used this application in the past.  PdaNet is slightly different than EasyTether Lite.  You download the application and you can unlock the full version with a code for $15.99.  Similar to EasyTetherLite secured traffic is blocked if you don’t unlock the pro features.
