I have been a tether user for Blackberry/Mac since beta testing and have recently upgraded to an android. I have missed the ability to tether when needed for the last few months. I was so excited to see tether released for the Android (I've already purchased and installed the program on my Fascinate), but am still waiting on the Mac platform for my computer. I would love to Beta the mac version if it is available.
My question is that since I am unable to tether my mac, can both android and BB versions exist on one PC? (my husband still has a BB he tethers and also uses the PC)

The version of tether I downloaded for Android for a Windows vista PC starts up and asks "Blackberry, Android" you select one then it will ask "USB, Bluetooth" for Blackberry selection and USB for a Android selection.

So I think the answer to your question is yes.

But so far I can not get teh Android USB to connect to my Droid Incredible phone. But the intent is that it is suppose to work.

Several on this forum can not get it to work on Droid Incredible for some reason.

Hopefully that gets fixed soon.

Are you receiving any error messages on the Android or PC when trying to use Tether?

I have things documented here:

I was able to get it to work if I uninstalled HTC SYNC for the PC as requested by tether guys as a test.

Tether has a known issue with HTC Sync installed on the PC. The workaround to resolve the issue it to remove HTC Sync.

Tether is currently looking into resolving this issue.
