1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    contact your service provider and ask them to add to your plan..
    i dont think anyone is going to tell you how to get tethering services for free at this point.

    $20/month if I remember correctly. There is still a way to get "free" tethering, but VZW can see it now. As long as you tether responsibly and don't exceed your 5 GB data cap, then there is no problem with the occasional free tether. It's your data, use it how you like.

    To find this "free" tethering, it's just a simple google search. Enjoy root!

    Go to Market, download Wireless Tether For Root Users. Turns internet connection on phone into a 3G hotspot for up to 5 devices.

    And it's free.
