Can anyone tell me the difference between the two on 2.2 Froyo. I currently have an Incredible & would like to know if one is better in any regards than the other.

i've actually been having troubles with the verizon hotspot, when i use it for longer than maybe 5 or 10 minutes it starts stopping and starting constantly unless i reboot the phone and try again. sometimes it lasts longer. also, the internet speed seems slightly gimped as well, everything seemed to work faster through wireless tether app (download speeds were higher as well).

I got rid of '3G HotSpot' and just use 'Wireless Tether' v2.0.5-pre7.
