    Tethering - Data Usage Observation

    This weekend I tethered my laptop to my HTC Thunderbolt. Was enjoying 24mpbs down and 10-15mbps up. Managed to eat 150mb of data in a few minutes. One thing I noticed is that on my VerizonWireless.com Usage stats, that it put the 150MB in my Domestic Data Used instead of my Domestic Mobile Broadband Connect Data Used. How am I to know how much of the 2GB I've used if it just pools it all together? I was under the impression that although Tethering is free till May, you're still bound by the 2GB and will be charged if you go over that.

    I used the Mobile Hotspot app on my HTC Thunderbolt. (I'm not rooted yet). Figured I'd take advantage of the free Tethering for a bit.
