I still have unlimited data on my phone and usually I USB tether my phone to my laptop to use the internet. After updating to Jellybean this morning it will no longer let me tether (with the USB cable or with apps like Firefox) without subscribing and paying $30 a month. The only reason I am still with Verizon is because I have unlimited data on my plan so it is needless to say that I will not be payin the $30 to continue tethering my phone. I am not sure if this has been covered on here or not but all the threads I did find made no mention of some monthly subscription from Verizon.
Is there any way around this? I have heard some say their apps still worked fine after the update but my husband (who is on my plan and has unlimited data also) also got the "you have to pay" message when he tried to tether. I don't use the browser on my phone unless I am desperate because the phone itself is super slow and takes forever to do anything and force closes the browser and apps all the time. I am not super phone savvy so all this is really confusing to me.
