    Talked to verizon said if we tether we are very limited

    Hi in otherword if we pay for tethering we're limited for 3gb (per month) or something close who cares. Now if we root it, and just pay for data plan and what ever either 900 min or so blah blah and so on. Are we still limited for couple gb per month, or is it unlimited for tethering??

    there's a separate tethering plan that has a cap.

    if you root and tether, it's unlimited. as long as your usage isn't consistently high then or like a rollercoaster of a chart, they have nothing to suspect.

    I'm talking about droid x, gonna wait another week before i receive mine. DOH, anyways I believe droid could be tether by rooting and installing the tethering software. Same goes with droid x, correct me if i'm wrong, but there is alot of resault about rooting and getting tethering by root in google.

    Technically you cannot ethically tether without paying for it.
    Doing so (from legit Verizon Wireless sources/agents) would violate
    the Terms of Service or (TOS) when you signed the contract.

    However the Droid 1 is in a very unique situation.
    There is NO tethering plan available for the Droid 1.

    Since you are technically not allowed to tether,
    you could say (in the sense that you pay for unlimited
    phone data) tethering at 5GB a month or less is what is allowed
    since there isn't a package for the Droid 1.

    Your mileage may vary and no one anywhere on any forum
    will be held liable if you ever were found to be tethering and using
    up data you didn't pay for (even though Ironically I feel you have)

    No actual proof of this has ever come to light.
    Only conjecture and unfounded/unproven accusations is all
    I've ever seen.

    Just didn't know if rooting and getting tethering for free would be unlimited but i'll take the word until someone prove wrong. I do have dsl and i can download and watch utube movies unlimited, i wont be using the phone to browese much unless if i'm at a place with no internet connection.

    Droid X?
    This is different since it has the wifi hotspot feature.
    The moto Droid=the Droid 1, not the X which is known as

    -Droid X, Droid Xtreme, or DX.

    I'm just here collecting information, i don't even have the phone yet and i wanna do what right and sure am going to read the contract rules. Don't we get a paper with all the rules and such when we receive a new phone?
