I buy my new Bionic will it be able to tether wireless to my laptop?
If you root it yes, but there is a chance Verizon could catch you.
Yes, but you have to pay for the extra feature unless you root
Eh, only if you were above and beyond excessive, but as long as you keep your data within the limits of possibility on a mobile device they can't say anything at all...and let me tell you, Netflix streaming on a regular basis on a smartphone can straight up eat some data.
Well I did say there was a "chance" But I know I personally don't watch netflix a lot.
Thanks to all, how long till root method. Any guess???
Root method is already out. Problem is, both Wireless Tether and Barnacle have been reported as not working on the Bionic from the guys who have them already. Chances are someone will come out with a new app or figure out how to fix these two but so far no one has reported having the ability.
As far as root, one click root for droid 3 works on the Bionic.
That's not true. they have ways of knowing if you tether, even if you only use 3KB. And its not true that they can't say anything at all...if you're a verizon costumer, you have signed a service agreement that says you won't tether without paying for their tethering plan. They have already said that pretty soon they will be automatically cancelling unlimited data for people who tethering without paying for it. They will put you on a tiered plan and charge you for the tethering plan at all. As soon as they implement that, a lot of people will be in trouble.
If you want to risk it that's your choice, but please don't tell other people that they can do it without consequence.
Do you have a link with this information from verizon?
^^ I know Atnt is doing that but I have NEVER heard of Verizon doing that, hell I don't think many if any people have gotten in trouble for tethering, I thought the only way they could know was to illegally sniff the packets sent to your phone...
Even then, they'd have to have a reason to do so. I heard of some dude tethering 125gbs in a month. Now that's a good reason to check him out, but someone using6-8gb i don't think is a big deal.
