I am trying to access my VPN with my Droid X Android phone. Ive tried 3G Mobile Hotspot, Tethering, & an app called 5 VPN and none of these options will give me joy. My question is....Does anyone have this phone and was successful at connecting to a VPN using PPTP on Verizons Network?

Hi agengler11,

I have a Droid X and VPN all the time. Go to settings/Wireless & Network Setting/ VPN settings and a new VPN connection.

I tried this and I get a connection error every time. When I connect to the same VPN from my iPad or PC or Laptop it connects fine. Do you think it could be Verizon blocking ports?

To see if it's a verizon issue, try it when connected over wifi.
