Yawn...

If we must have caps, then I will still object to not being able to use data in ways I wish to, such as tethering. If I am going to pay by the byte, then the data provider shouldn't care what devices use those bytes.

I can tether my tablet without a problem. Verizon didn't restrict anything on it. Do they disable all of those features on the phones that have caps?

You do have the ability to do it, but if you are caught doing it you get pushed into a tethering plan. That plan just charges you more money for the same bytes.

How do you do that without a tethering plan? Is your device jail broken. I am not able to tether unless I have a plan which I currently do with Verizon. I tether my iPhone to my iPad to save 10.00 versus having a separate iPad 3G plan.

They do give you 2GB of extra data for the tethering plans, which comes out to be the same rate as their overage fees, at $10/GB.
