    Is utilizing the internet through your phone and cable on your laptop legal?

    According to Verizon TOS? Seems to good to be true. How did I not know about this?

    There's always the option of rooting your phone and doing it for free...though Verizon does look down upon that option but how would they know? Lol

    If you pay their tethering fee is does not violate their Terms of Service. I you steal the service, it does violate their terms of service. I don't there's a "legality" issue, just an issue with violating a contract you signed.

    I think the way they will catch you is if you use like 39 gigs.

    I'm SqLite hacked but I chose to subscribe to Wi-Fi tether because I didn't want to loose grandfather unlimited.

    The OP is talking about USB tethering, not Wifi hotspot. USB tethering never prompts you for anything, it just connects your PC to the internet. At least the USB tethering built into the Bionic's OS doesn't; not sure about the Droid 2.

    It's a good way to lose your phone service if you're caught.

    Not sure if they go that far, I've heard they usually just charge you either a fee or charge for their official tethering package

    It is Verizilegal provided you pay for tethering. However, not paying for it is not.

    Rooting is also Verizilegal (this is different from warrantylegal) provided you don't circumvent any of the TOS restrictions. i.e. tethering without paying for it.

    If we all agree on it, it must be true.[citation needed​]
