    Dunno but now that Verizon is a ISP & cable provider they have an incentive to keep things limited.

Hopefully they have some plans that are reasonable.

    Actually they have gone after people who tether. Just ask @ P3droid too.... one of his frindes got cut off with no warning....

    This move isn't about the ever so popular tether.. it is about $$ and what VZW can make. Good for me since 2GB would be more than enough. Since i'm always in wifi areas unless im at the airport. Then I use my Xoom anyways

    It was less then a year ago. Verizon still has a tiered pricing option for their feature phones.

    Featured
    Pay as you go $1.99/MB
    75MB for $10
    Unlimited $29.99

    Before they had I believe 150MB option for like $15 or so.

    Smart phones used to have the 150MB as an option but then vzw pulled it. Again this was less then a year ago.

    This is definitely going to be a "wait and see" ordeal. Depending where you look, there's mention of:

    Unlimited being available to customers that already had the plan.

    Verizon still planning on having an unlimited plan available with the tiered pricing plans.

    Verizon completely discontinuing unlimited data plans.

    VZW execs have got to be loving the frenzy we are in lol.

    On a personal note, I don't think the TB will be an option for me. It just seems like it has way too many issues. A coworker of mine was talking about the Charge he was waiting for to be sent to him, I may check that out and play with it.
    I'll put it to better use anyway, since when I asked why he ordered that phone, he said, "because it's a 4g phone." When I asked what that meant, he had no clue, lol.

    I have 2 smart phones @ 29.99 each, if they switch to a family style plan where phones share minutes, even if unlimited data goes up to 39.99, I still save $20 / month. I see this as a potential good thing unless the data limits are insanely low. With the release of the Netflix app which uses close to 1gig per move they need to keep data limits kind of high. Like 5gig for $10/month, 15gig for 20/month and unlimited for 30/month, all shared of course.

    Wasn't there a rumor about this being a summer special?

    Yeah, but the point is that they have had tiered plans before (for both smart & feature).
