    PDANet Tethering

    Okay, so I have recently bought my Motorola Droid and I decided to check out this tethering stuff. I downloaded PDANet and I was a go on my laptop. I just started reading about fees that Verizon might charge me? I've only used around 100mb of data from PDANet (A few days of just some browsing) not much. Will I get charged? I uninstalled PDANet and such. I also do have the Unlimited Data Plan (since it is supposedly needed by the phone to work and all).

    That's such a relief. I didn't want to have to pay around 180 dollars to cover this months expenses (Due to activation, Plan, and a partial phone charge).

    if they find out you are tethering they can bill you for all data used and a early contract termination fee if they want to be really d***s but i do not know anyone that has been busted if being smart about it

    May I ask what makes it easy to be caught tethering? It's my first month with the phone and I don't want to be charged for 100mb of data use. It seems that it would be a lot of money. And on top of that, having my phone canceled will suck too. I uninstalled it cause I got rather scared about it.

    Large amounts of data, I mean extremely large.

    If you uses 10 gig's in awwek, they will most liekly be able to put together that it didn't all happen on your tiny phone.

    I would serach though, there are numerous threads on the subject. Many saying why you'll be fine, many saying how you will get caught.

    Well considering I have only used 100mb, I'll stop now since I do have internet at home, plus I don't want to be some sort of data hog anyways. Thanks for the help, as far as I have seen on other threads, I guess 100mb's would most likely be under the radar, hopefully. Thanks so much.

    I checked my online account this morning to see this:
    Domestic
    Mobile Broadband Connect
    Data Used
    Usage Type My Usage Kilobytes 0.00KB

    I'm guessing I got caught? Or is that always there?

    Edit: I guess its always there, I just checked my mothers account and she has never tethered or anything.

    are you on the 50$ or 30$ internet plan on your phone because that looks like the term they used for the 50$ one I thought they changed it on the 30$ one but then again i have not look at the bill in years
