Hey - didja know?
Google has removed the way cool green icon WiFi Tether
from Market..
That application makes my Incredible a little powerhouse.
Since I'm always messing around with new roms, I usually
go to Market to get my new dose of Tether. But lately, it
hasn't been there. No mention of it anywhere.
Did a search and discovered that Google has removed the
application from Market. No longer available, period.
So, if you like it and use it, download the APK and use
a Market installer program to get it on your Incredible.
Save that APK in case it somehow goes away forever!
Get it at: http://code.google.com/p/android-wif...downloads/list

Interesting. I just loaded the market and when I look at my apps, WT is not showing up even though I have it installed.

Its not showing up cause its pulled off of the market. If its not in the market, its not going to show up on your "My Apps" list in the market.

Interesting. Easy Tether and Wireless Tether pulled on the same day.

Verizon had all tethering apps removed from the market. Read on engadget

I rarely tether, but when I do, I've still been using the built in app and go in and make sure I edit the settings (doing the hack). I've still never been billed for it or had any problems. Then again, I'm not rooted.

Its kinda disappointing to me that Google gave in to Verizon and pulled those apps. Not that you can't just download the apk from somewhere else, but its the principle..

I've done the "hack" on the stock ROM before I was even rooted. Works perfectly. Free tethering, without even having to root.

Same here. I am not rooted (yet) but I have never been billed for wireless tether. I also have easy tether pro backed up so I am good to go.
