    Hey, thanks for your reply! I just wanted to see if anyone out in the community has fallen victim to Verizon's policing efforts against tethering.

    They've stopped the wifi tether app from working, but ironically gave an alternative through their very own mobile hotspot (LoL).

    I've used 38gb this month. I stream a LOT of stuff. Grandfathered account, no warnings or anything.

    While I may be in the camp that wireless tethering should be free and be a part of our data package.....it's the people who use 38 GB of data a month who are giving Verizon a reason to be Nazis about this. Thanks for ruining it for the rest of us who use it marginally.

    Streaming =/= tethering. Try using netflix or the nfl app and stream and you'll see how easy it is to rack up data.

    X2, they advertise 4G for downloading songs, videos, and streaming faster than ever. Which is exactly what I use it for. Why would they punish people for using what they advertised to begin with?

    Just imagine how much data is transferred from just watching YouTube videos, lol. Not to mention uploading them.

    If your someone who watches netflix or hulu regulary, you have no problem racking up 30+ GB in a month. I dont stream that much often, but I did watch a couple shows while on a bus trip a couple weeks ago. I used more than 2 GB on the ride. So I can see some people using 2-3 GB per day. at 4G speeeds there will be people using 100 GB per month. Anyway I used about 5 GB in the first week and a half (end of billing cycle) with a combination of phone and tether, havent heard anything yet. All these people worried, I'm sure Verizon will do the same thing AT&T did when they started cracking down on people tethering with there iPhone. they first sent you an email telling you to stop tethering or subscribe to a tethering plan. If you continued to tether without a plan they enrolled you in a plan and you found out when your bill came in. So I'm not very worried, i'm thinking worst case is after getting it for free for awhile I'll have to start paying for it. Verizon isnt going to be to hard on the customer, they need us more than we need them.

    I agree with Gohan 100%.

    See, basically it boils down to money. Personally I think it's retarded for Verizon to charge $30 extra for you to use a feature that's already built into your phone.

    I'd honestly pay for if it was reasonably priced. Let's see, I pay $100 for minutes, $25 for unlimited texts and $30 for data. $30 on top of all that to use something I can just hack and unlock myself???

    NEGATIVE GHOST RIDER!!

    Radiocom hack does not mask on droid by bionic! Go to the xda forum discussion and read the entire thing, especially from page 4.

    In addition to all that, Verizon/Moto pre-installs Zumocast which can be another data hog. If they don't want you to use data they shouldn't install apps like this for you and then advertise these apps as a key feature of the phone. I'm not going to worry about my data use. I can easily use a lot of data WITHOUT tethering just by using Netflix, Pandora and Motorola's bloatware Zumocast.
    The only reason I want to tether is so I can watch movies on a bigger screen. Oh, wait! I can do that already with the HDMI cable. I am sure Wifi tethering for simply surfing the internet uses no where near the data that these other apps use.

    What do you mean by that??? I read the entire post when it was originally posted by the group that discovered that hack (can't remember the guy's name). He said it basically changes the outgoing data's code that's transmitted to VZ to look like it's all phone data versus data that's not (hence data used by tethering).

    From what I remember the post said something to the effect of the code that's sent to to VZ has the tag "@vzn.(whatever)" attached to it when its phone data (ie. surfing the net from the phone) being transmitted and the tag "@dun.vzn.(whatever)" when it's data that's being used by a connected device.

    Correct me if I'm wrong???

    From what I've read, that's how it worked for the Droid 3 and other 3g phones. This phone seems to authenticate much differently, rendering this masking method useless. Look for cellzealot's posts over at XDA, he seems to understand it best. I believe that at this point Verizon will be able to easily distinguish phone data vs tethered data until this authentication is cracked. A much safer option would be to use a usb tethering option such as PdaNet.

    If you go and read the entire discussion on xda you will see that the people who discovered the heck, 1 of them is posting in that discussion, see that he clearly states that it does not work on the bionic it only works on 3g devices. It has to do with the sim card and how you can't hack or overriding information stored on that. And that the heck cannot cover your tracks. The sim card is unchangeable and always will read that you do not have tethering plan and verizon can easily see which way you're using your data,through the phone or through an outside device

    Just go read the entire discussion because I was using the radiocom hack and check entitlement to do the free wifi tethering but after reading the entire discussion and getting information from the developer I realize that it is not safe YET

    "safe" no one knows right now what is or is not safe. also no one knows what verizon may do if you get caught. It's all speculation right now. reading some of these posts I'm waiting to hear someone say that SWAT will be at your house wen you get caught. As you read through all these posts just remember none of us know if they can tell if your tethering or if they even care enough to check. none of us know what will happen if you get caught. If your worried about it wait a couple months, all of us who are not scared will be sure to let everyone know if verozon catches any of us and what they do or say about it. There are alot of people on here who are not scared about it and some of them are using sick amounts of data. So all I can say is either take the leap and test the waters for the rest of the community or sit back and wait until your sure its safe to come in. Im not trying to be a smart azz. But i dont think any one on here is in verizons IT dept. If I'm wrong let me know.

    Honestly I'm not sure if USB tether through PDA net is safe. I would think that it is "safer" but i have never used it. I did a good bit of rooting and wireless tethering on my 3g DX and i did some on my bionic with the check entitlement hack for a little while. That was until i heard from one of the radiocomm hack developers that it did not "cover your tracks" on the 4g devices like it did on the 3g droid 3. So I stopped wireless tethering for fear of losing my unlimited package, which i feel is way more important.

    After looking on the Verizon website I actually decided to PAY for the wireless hotspot capability! HAHA if you had told me last year that this would happen I WOULD HAVE TOLD YOU THAT YOU WERE CRAZY! BECAUSE I WAS TOTALLY AGAINST PAYING VERIZON $30 FOR 2GB OF DATA WHEN I WAS ALREADY PAYING FOR UNLIMITED!

    BUT there is a reason why...

    I found that online that when i tried to sign up for the Hotspot plan I only had to pay 24.99 instead of $30 AND that, if you have the unlimited 4g data plan, you get UNLIMITED DATA tething with the Hotspot plan. Not some bogus 2GB. So in the end i decided it was worth it to pay, for the time being, for the ability to tether wireless and for the piece of mind.

    Granted this is decision is up to anyone and i do not care either way which you do. i definitely am not here to bash people who hack and do it for free!

    But I do offer this advice.. we don't really fully understand how Verizon tracks this usage and what they will do if you are caught. To me my unlimited data is to valuable to lose. So I wish you good luck with what ever choice you make...
