    I heard through some individuals with other smart phones that if you tether through blue tooth and not through a cable or hotspot wifi you can get internet without the carrier noticing the tethering option being used. I could be wrong...

    As it has been said many times in these forums...

    There are 3 types of tethering.

    Official tethering: sets up a hot spot allowing 5 computers to connect, costs $20/month for 2 gigs of data.

    Nonroot tether: Allows you to tether using a USB cable or bluetooth. Usually have to pay for the app but it piggy backs on your existing data plan. No monthly fees.

    Root tether: Sets up wifi hotspot, totally free, as many people that want can connect to your phone and get internet.

    First 2 options are 100% possible. the 3rd option will depend on if we get root or not.

    Don't mean to hijack this thread, but how do you go through to root tether? That is if we get root.
