Ah.. alright well then, I'll take my chances, how bad is the fee if caught?
Anytime someone dares me to walk a mile in their shoes I do it! Because, hey free shoes and I am now a mile away from that person!
Hatred is by far the ugliest trait any human can possess (think about it)
It is $30 a month for a 5GB tethering data cap using their service. The Palm Pre is unlimited tethering (for some stupid reason they get it free). I'm not 100% on if they charge for Blackberry now or not. I know they didn't before but I THINK they may have changed that, don't hold me to that statement though.
I know people who have added a line and put a Palm Pre on it just to tether.
Android keeps going, and going.....
Hi all, have been lurking for a while now but new to posting...
Have followed some tethering threads for some time, & decided that it would be best to bite the bullet & sign on for Verizon's plan. This morning I called a VZW store to ask about it, and was told to install pdanet from the market, load their software on my laptop, & I was good to go. Asked again for pricing, & she said it was free for droid owners. Sounded too good to be true...
So I stopped in after work at a [I]different[I] VZW store, and asked the same questions. The tech who helped me told me the exact same thing, and a manager-type that overheard us echoed him. Said that was the beauty of the Droid (mentioned N1 as well); services like turn by turn nav & tethering were no extra charge. He even took my phone, found pdanet free, & installed it. Told me to google search the computer software & load it on the laptop. Still a little skeptical, I asked again how much this would cost per month, and what the limits were. Again, both fellows said it didn't require any fee other than the unlimited data plan I already have, and that this was what made droid so desirable.
So I'm typing this on my laptop -tethered to the Droid for internet access- still thinking it sounds too good to be true. Used to tether with a Blackberry from Cincinnati Bell, & paid $30/month for the privelege. But... hell, I TRIED to do what I thought was right (pay for the service), giving them multiple chances to sign me to a plan... and three different employees at two different stores INSISTED I just load a free app & tether to my heart's content while paying only for the unlimited data plan I already had.
Would be greatly interested in hearing about other folks experiences when asking Verizon about tethering plans (specifically for the Motorola Droid & Nexus One)
