Huh?

Verizon now has a cap on data so if a customer if paying for 2GB of data why should Verizon care how that customer uses it?

Is Verizon giving out free lube with each new account?

No, the free lube was a limited time offer. After this month all customers will be charged a monthly lube recovery fee.

The vast majority of their customers are still going to be on the unlimited plan for quite some time; I just upgraded to the Droid 3 and was grandfathered in for 2 more years.

I doubt they care how you use your data, but rather how much of it- those who tether are likely to use much more than those who don't. With 4g LTE out, one could otherwise cancel their home broadband connection and replace it with a tethered connection if they were on the unlimited plan and tethering wasn't disabled. That's undoubtedly not how Verizon wanted their mobile network used.

Then they should not sell a customer 2GB of data for $30. If a person is paying for 2GB of data then Verizon should not care how that is reached. That is where Verizon differs from every one else. They should take the good with the bad.

Free lube? This is Verizon you are talking about. They will expect you to buy their over priced lube so they can ream you up the rear.
