Verizon has found a way to catch Tether Users who don't agree to the terms in the Browser, but continue to find work arounds. They are now charging by the MB of data.. This morning my bill was $300, after 2 hours of use it is now over $800 dollars.. I have an Unlimited 3G Data Plan and yet they've managed to nab me. I'm praying to God this is a flaw in the system, as I've always had an unlimited data plan.. All I'm saying is be careful; they're sending out not so friendly reminders that data isn't free... Holy shit...

I've been usingwireless tether for the better part of 6 months..average usage 30-40 gigs/month...home pc, 3 ipod touches..etc...and have never had any issues(Knock on wood). Ive.been running CM7 using barnacle wifi tether with almost 100% problem free usage...I just flashed CM9...built in teher will not work...nor will barnacle...so i found one call "open garden"....Any questions ...just ask.

Holy cow, 30-40 gigs/month? there is NO way I could ever use that much using wifi-tether. I remember one guy said that you shouldn't use over 10 gigs/month even with an unlimited plan as they could flag your account for review, and if they think you might be tethering they will get you for it. I think I'm going to go check my Verizon bill now and see if I have any charges.

I've seen much worse than 40 Gigabytes......
What came out of this? Did it turn out to be an error?
I have never been warned for using tethering from my phone.

yeah, if you do not have the IQ of a toaster when you tether and use less than like 10 gb, you should not worry.

Fake. I dont think you can view the current cost of your bill as a running total like that. You have to wait for the billing cycle to view the new balance.

Do you own or work for Verizon and are trying to get people away from tethering?

LOL ,you caught him , it's really David Verizon , the owner of Verizon . Seriously , using that much data , and now hit with an $800 bill , bet you wish you'd paid for home internet . I didn't get hit during the 6 mo. I was using tether for all my internet , but I didn't go nuts , kept it between 4-6/mo.
