    Tethering blocked?

    I've been toying with the idea of rooting, but the main reason I would do it right now is for free hotspotting. But I've been reading that Verizon has figured out how to block it. Is there any truth to this? I've done a search on the site, and nothing that seems related came up.

    I think you need to clarify for the OP, You tethered via usb? bluetooth? wifi teather? with or with out the radio hack?

    It is my understanding that the radio hack doesn't work for everyone anymore (correct me if i'm wrong) and even with root access apps like wifi tether are blocked and still sent you to the official verizon hotspot page.

    You do not need to be rooted to use an app like pdanet (usb from your phone to computer)

    This, specifically, is what I've heard and what I'm curious about. If it's true, then I'll have to decide whether freezing bloatware is worth rooting or not. This was the main reason for my wanting to root.

    I'm rooted, and apps like wifi tether do not work. You need to do the radio hack for them to work. Rooting and freezing bloatware i felt made the phone a lot faster (and I didn't even freeze everything I could).

    But if you don't want to root I'd suggest pdanet, I use it and it gets the job done. I do miss the wifi tethering though.

    Cool, thanks. I'll have to decide what route I want to take, which will best suit my needs.

    How do you do the radio hack? Is it easy to do? I rooted my phone with the 3 or 4 step easy method but if it's not too hard I definitely would like to do the radio hack to get tethering working.

    Are there custom ROMs that have tethering built in? My Incredible CM7 had tethering built in and that worked perfect.

    I'm not on Verizon, so I neither have tethering issues nor I can test.
    Are there really people who use the app "Wireless Tether for Root Users" and are redirected to Verizon? If yes, did someone check if they did it the obvious way with iptables?
    Someone with these problems please post the output of:
    iptables -t nat --list -v
    (of course tethering has to be established then)
