    so what we have here is yet another instance, where, the gut reaction is Verizon is cracking down on tethering. Everyone that believes tethering is stealing stops reading your first post, and uses it as undeniable proof that they are right. They then spread this rumor in other threads that have issues with tethering. That answers the following concern....

    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.
    so the above is the reason why the rumors keep going. Not understanding what goes on and the accusation that it must be verizon/sprint/t-mobile/whoever must finally be cracking down on all the scum of the earth that tethers 100GB per month.


    pretty soon, there will be a poster that says "I can't wait til they finally start busting people..." in a sour grapes sorta post
    or
    someone will post a cancellation paper for a non-droid phone for an issue unrelated to tethering as 'positive-proof'

    I agree a thousand percent. If anyone is stealing it is Verizon, to take a perfectly good phone and break the functionality, so that they can charge more. Keep in mind they didn't charge $10 for the phone, with the disclaimer that most functionality will be broken. They sold all the whistles and bells for the $200. per phone without any disclaimers at all!!!

    I hate to say it, but recently I've been having a problem tethering myself, and I know what I'm doing. It's typically in the late night hours, and like the OP stated, the connection will timeout. So, I disconnected the tether connection, and accessed the site on the phone itself with no problem.

    Like I said, it's typically between 3a-4a EST. I've tried resetting the connection and power-cycling my phone, and doesn't fix it.
