    I am woundering has anyone actually got charged data for the use of the free wifi teather for root users. my internet is crap drops every 30 min some time is just a spike some time its 3-5 min I am stuck in a contract and had 10 techs come to look at the problem and no one fixes it. I don't play madden alot but I want to be able to play a full game without a disconnect. so far 100% dissconect rate. I rather deal with a little lag on the cell then deal with disconnects. but I can't afford to get charged any extra for data

    should be, as it is just pulling data, just as you pull data for email/browswer/etc on the device. Verizon has no way to know what is pulling the data, just that data is being pulled; however, if you use tethering a lot, they may flag your account due to the high usage which is indicative of tethering. Essentially, the built in tethering app (that you pay for) is set up to block access through the app and not through the data pull, thus using a 3rd party app bypasses the built-in app and negates the need to pay.

    No, some people are misinformed about things, your normal data plan is unlimited. If you purchase the tether option that they now have for your phone, then that actually does have a cap, if i'm remembering correctly it's 2GB.
