Get your hands on sqlite editor.
1. Open app then under the apps list click settings storage (the one with the hammer and wrench)
2. Then click settings
3. Click settings.db
4. Scroll down to entitlement check, I believe the # was 68.
5. Hold down on it and choose edit record, then below change where it says value from 1 to 0
6. Save and reboot your phone and give the app a try.

Even if I had a capped plan and so I was able to use Mobile Hotspot for wifi tethering, I think I would still opt for a 3rd-part wifi tether app, such as PDANet, FoxFi, android-wifi-tether, etc. Even though some require rooting or don't currently work with this new phone. That way, Verizon is unaware that I'm tethering at all, since these 3rd-party apps sure as heck aren't going to tell Verizon that non-phone devices are consuming the data that flows through them. I don't like Verizon knowing this because it just gives them more leverage to screw me on my bill somehow, now or in the future. I guess I'm a paranoid android.
