Re: Pointless

said by puck0114:

No need to even root. Just install a third party tethering app like PDANet or FoxFi (Verizon isn't allowed to block them) and connect to your phone.

They can't bock them but they can still insist you pay for the service.

At that point, exactly what service would you be paying for?

Exactly, you are already paying for the service... the data connection. Tethering is not a 'service', it is something you do with service you already have.

Unless you're on their Share Everything plan tethering costs extra. That's just the facts.

Oh sure, I don't doubt that they will charge you if you ask them nicely to tether you. But if you do it yourself, what are they charging you for?

I don't disagree that they will charge for this. I'm just tyring to point out that they are not doing anything worth being paid for. Kind of like when ISPs used to try and charge by the computer at your house. They woke up and decided to charge for something real. An IP address...
