PdaNet provides FULL Internet access so to email, instant message programs will work without any setting changes. Supports both USB Tether and Bluetooth DUN.
PdaNet does NOT require root access or hacking your phone's firmware in order to work. It is a regular Android application that works on all Android phones as-is. Tethering is fast, secure and USB mode will also charge your phone at the same time. Your phone can either connect to 3G data, WiFi, or even through VPN and PdaNet will share the connection with your computer.
This in an independent app and not available from the Android Market. The carriers don't like users tethering without one of their tethering plans.
The trial version is free while the full version is $29.99. Once the trial expires, you can continue using PdaNet for free. The only difference is that free edition blocks https ports. This app falls into a "renegade" category, some reviewers suggest that you check with your carrier to see if you can "tether" your Android phone. It's a gray area, and we can't tell what the carriers will do to you if they find you used too much data....
How to Setup & Use PdaNet for Android
- Download the software to your computer from the PdaNet website.

- Plug your Android phone into USB (first time use will install the app onto your Android phone from computer)
- Toggle On/Off button on phone for Internet tethering
- From the PdaNet icon in bottom right task bar on computer, click "Connect."
