Yea,

It seems to work.

I've removed CityID, Blockbuster, and Skype in adb after the install.

I'd love to try it but I'm not able to get the ADBDriver_v3_Google.zip attachment you supposedly need to do it.

This is what I used, I'm sure a moderator will remove it if this shouldn't be posted, and if so, sorry.

Wow - this works!!!

Got Wifi Tether working like a champ.

Cannot make the following work. Do we need to make it work?

1) Dial ##778, SEND
2) EPST dialog comes up. Select 'Edit Mode'. Enter SPC (000000), hit OK.
3) Scroll to down to 'Security', select it. Change 'S.IP DUN User name' to yourvzwnumber@vzw3g.com (from yourvzwnumber@dun.vzw3g.com)
4) Hit back arrow to go back and go/select 'M.IP Default Profile'. Change 'DUN NAI' to yourvzwnumber@vzw3g.com (from yourvzwnumber@dun.vzw3g.com)
5) Hit menu button, and 'Commit Modifications', phone will save changes and reboot.

Do you just need to install the apk?

Never rooted before so wasn't sure if it was that simple.

Thanks

Edit: Never mind, over at the other site ans see the directions.

Are you sure Verizon isn't going to charge for WiFi tethering just because it's rooted?
