    Wongway,

    I've known people to use 15+ GB's per month consecutively for months at a time with no issue at all. If you're being a leech, downloading 80+ GB's per month, I could see someone getting a formal notice in the mail.

    Exactly -- or having your account terminated for violating the TOS if they could prove you were tethering.

    However, I haven't heard one reputable instance where someone got a warning or termination from Verizon for tethering their Droid.

    I have Verizon, and I read the terms and conditions pretty thoroughly and they say that they do not allow tethering unless you purchase their mobile broadband...but thing is, their mobile broadband isn't compatible to the Droid. I don't think Verizon can complain about people using other programs to tether, even if free, because they don't offer it to us Droid owners. If they did, I might consider purchasing the plan, but they don't so...

    I used to use Easy Tether but that was a difficult program for me, due to it intermittently not wanting to work. I went to PdaNet and the set up was a breeze and I have NEVER had any issues with connecting or using the program to tether my phone to my laptop. Sometimes it is a little slow but then again I think the internet speed on the phone is somewhat slow too so...hope this helps some of you out. = )

    update: I called VZW, and the tech support rep told me that they were experiencing 3g internet outages for much of my region of the country that day (when I originally posted). Was back up yesterday and have been good since.

    A lot of people get the Verizon page when they use USB tether in the phone. Try Wireless Tether for Root Users or another program like pdanet.

    Wireless Tether for Rot Users works via wifi...you can also try EasyTether available in market...costs $9.99 for initial purchase, but it works like a charm...

    There is also a wired tether app from the same developers of wireless tether. No need to pay for easy tether or anything else. I would have thought that by now the 5gb cap was out of peoples minds. Who keeps this rumor going? You can use as much data as you want each month...period. As long as it's coming from your phone. And as far as I know, the hacks being used to allow free tethering will show that the data is.coming from your phone. Now...if they wanted to Verizon could say "well the is no way you are downloading so much flash content to your phone since you have 2.1 which doesn't support flash" (or some other content..just an example) and bust ya lol.

    There is NO CAP for what you use on your phone. Just make sure if you tether that you are accessing content that you could also acess from your phone.
