After a little trial and error, I have found the magic combination of settings to allow Tether to work on the Thunderbolt.

**NOTE**:
The settings below assume you have used Tether before, and know the location of the listed setting on your laptop/netbook & HTC Thunderbolt. Please ensure you have installed Tether in both location First.

Hardware:
** Asus Eee PC 1201N
- Windows 7
** VZW HTC Thunderbolt (Stock, NOT Rooted)
- Android ver. - 2.2.1
- Kernel ver. - 2.6.32.21...
==============================

Laptop/Netbook Settings:
- Turn off Wireless Network Card (Bluetooth may be enabled)
- Run Tether program

*******************************************

HTC Thunderbolt Settings:
- Enable "USB debugging"
- Set USB Connection to "Charge Only", when connecting to PC
- Run tether program

I agree with the above procedure. With 2 bars of 4G showing on my Thunderbolt, I get 15ms Ping, 10Mbps download and 2.25Mbps upload. While not as fast as I get if I run the Android Speedtest app on my phone, these laptop speeds are more than acceptable.

I used Tether on my Blackberry Tour with 3G for 18 months and found it to be very reliable, if a little slow (200ms/0.7Mbps/0.25Mps). I do highly recommend Tether for "away from home" use.

Sorry Tether currently does not support Android Tablets.

Tether is looking into supporting them in the near future.

Thanks for this! Anyone noted whether or not this data useage is seen on the Verizon account info? Rumor mongering is that 5gb cap is in place

Tether has many Verizon customers with no issues.

Verizon's unlimited data plan is really 5 Gigs.

Some of our customers have gone past 5 Gigs with no issues from Verizon.

Does this procedure work without uninstalling HTC sync?

I recently had to switch from BB to Droid Thunderbolt and I miss Tether but have not tried to use it here because I do sync my contacts and calendar often with the laptop.

Any update on this?

Hello,

There have been some known conflicts with customers who are using HTC Sync and Tether. It is recommended that if you plan to use Tether to uninstall HTC Sync to use Tether, and you are welcome to install HTC Sync whenever you need to do a sync, but if you are going to use Tether again it is recommended to uninstall HTC Sync again. I'm sorry.

Joseph no longer works for Tether. Please open a ticket on our support system.

Has there been any change to the HTC sync issue? I have not been able to use tether now for a long time since I use the sync to keep my phone contacts and calendar in step with my laptop.

You can keep htc sync installed but ensure that it is not running. This should solve the issue. Please let me know if any difficulty.
