For some reason, today I could no longer use Android Market until I enabled access in DroidWall for "Network Location, Google Calendar Sync, Google Services Framework, Google Contacts Sync". Until today I was able to keep that blocked with no issues connecting to Market. So now whenever I want to use Market I must enable that .
And I "think" that I know WHY this is now the case, check this out:
Wireless Tether App for Android Gets Banned by Carriers
I can no longer see the Wireless Tether app in Android market. So perhaps this must all be part of the effort to cater to carriers' wishes.
Just wanted to drop in again as say thanks to Darnnel_Chat for this thread I have enjoyed following this thread. I think it is a very useful thread as it helps stop what I consider consumer abuse, and not to mention help free up resources like battery and memory on our Droid devices. Also wanted to say congrates to D_C for getting another artical published in the XDA Portal. The carrier companies are just getting rediculous now by hidding the WiFi tethering app. When will they learn though lol.
Congrates again D_C and keep up the good work man.
