    Because this thread doesn't have to turn into the same argument that has been talked about probably across the span of 25 threads and 400 pages worth of crap. It's always the same ****:

    Group A claims that there is a 5GB cap
    Group B says there is not
    Neither group provides any real proof that not only A) there is a cap but more importantly that B) Verizon enforces said cap on a regular basis.
    Any examples that the 5GB cap exists are based on "someone who knows someone who knows someone" or a vague reference to being capped without any proof
    The conclusion is don't download torrents and you'll be fine.

    That's the summary of every thread on this subject. If you don't believe me, go and search then you don't have to rehash everything.

    I work for a 3rd party retailer, and as far as I can tell, Verizon isn't using a packet inspection method for detecting tethering; and if I recall correctly, the tethering app is using different connection settings then the standard mobile network settings, thereby identifying it as being in tethering mode. I can confirm that there IS a 5gb cap when in tethering; this is FCC enforced if I remember correctly, its not Verizon's choice. It applies to all carriers, even on their mobile broadband cards. Going over that limit results in a very lovely overage charge that will likely send you into fits. However, phone-based usage is still unlimited, and I think that's just because downloading 5gb worth of data to a phone would be difficult to do. In otherwords, try using EasyTether off the market, or PDAnet if you prefer. Its not wireless, but its better than nothing. That being said...

    ...wasn't this thread created to discuss root? >.>

    ALL YOUR ROOT ARE BELONG TO US!!!

    I would think those that discover and use these root methods would know best what they are doing. Once the Incredible is rooted folks all over the net will know. Nobody is holding back, it would be pointless.

    You weren't really expecting a "why yes, you are correct, why didn't they think of that?" were you?:)

    Will it be able to WiFi tether with the current packages or will a new WiFi tether package have to be made?

    Don't believe anything you read until you see proof. Root success has been lied about before on other phones.

    Why am I skeptical? If the N1 can't hit those kind of OC speeds, how would the DI? The actual cpu in both are the same.
