This is really wild. I had PDANet installed on my Incredible (VZW), now when I go to the Market, it is no longer listed as an installed app. When I tried to download the new version, it said select another device and had my gmail account greyed out. I don't actually use the app at all, just wanted to see if and how it works, and the new version has troubles wtih bluetooth connections, so after I sideloaded it and played with it a while I threw it away again.
But this is disgusting as a matter of principle, TOS be damned. I have always hated American carriers and their stance towards monetizing tethering as an additional revenue stream for a number of years now, particularly in light of the fact that other countries do NOT disable tethering, with O2 the latest UK carrier to DROP tethering charges on plans of 100 Meg or more.
If this is what Verizon lobbied congress to block net neutrality rules from wireless networks for, then I'll take socialism and strong federal regulation of private enterprise over unregulated feudal capitalism any day.

Well...I have PDANet installed on my HTC Incredible as you read this...so what's you're problem? Simple...you're not rooted. Bummer, dude. Also have WiFi tether as well. I bet you don't...dude. Bummer. VZW=FTW. Just gotta know how to play the game. Sideloading? Jeeze...incredibly(sic) simple. Apps Installer(Market) is your friend.
