    How come nobody is working on this wifi tether bullcrap from Verizon?

    They block what is a feature that is ours BY RIGHT

    where is the fix? why is the hacker community not up in arms about this with some one-click solution?

    I'm curious. Where was this (your right) in the AUP or ToS? Because I didn't see it.

    Sent from my A855, while on the move.

    What Are Verizon Wireless' Rights to Limit or End Service or End this Agreement?

    We can, without notice, limit, suspend or end your Service or any agreement with you for any good cause, including, but not limited to: (1) if you: (a) breach this agreement; (b) resell your Service; (c) use your Service for any illegal purpose, including use that violates trade and economic sanctions and prohibitions promulgated by any U.S. governmental agency; (d) install, deploy or use any regeneration equipment or similar mechanism (for example, a repeater) to originate, amplify, enhance, retransmit or regenerate an RF signal without our permission; (e) steal from or lie to us; or, if you're a Postpay customer, (f) do not pay your bill on time; (g) incur charges larger than a required deposit or billing limit, or materially in excess of your monthly access charges (even if we haven't yet billed the charges); (h) provide credit information we can't verify; or (i) are unable to pay us or go bankrupt; or (2) if you, any user of your device or any line of service on your account, or any account manager on your account: (a) threaten, harass, or use vulgar and/or inappropriate language toward our representatives; (b) interfere with our operations; (c) "spam," or engage in other abusive messaging or calling; (d) modify your device from its manufacturer's specifications; or (e) use your Service in a way that negatively affects our network or other customers. We can also temporarily limit your Service for any operational or governmental reason.
    Customer Agreement | Verizon Wireless

    Basically, when you signed your contract, you agreed not to modify your device. You need to root to use WiFi tether, thus modifying your device.

    Lol yup! I have not ever had a problem with tether...however, I never use it....I may check that it works but that's for one second to see the mbs up and down...I agree, tethering (over tethering with greed) is one reason I believe the prices are as they are....

    Go over to Verizon and ask them to unblock that for you.

    Didn't have to root before. So using PDANet does not violate this agreement verbatim because you don't have to modify the device.
    Just throwing stuff out there

    disregarding whether its someone's right or not, is anyone working on a bypass for this? And I mean a simple bypass, not the TBH one.

    Tethering has always been against VZW TOS, but I can't read through their fancy legal jargon to find it.
