1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Didnt see a thread on this, but has anyone tried the native USB tethering on the phone?

    Im posting from it right now.. hopefully I dont get charged lol. I connected the phone via USB to my computer. Went to Settings > Wireless and Networks > Tethering and Mobile Hotspot > USB Tethering. I checked the USB Tethering, it installed some Drivers on the computer and now Im on the Internets!

    Decent speeds too..

    It didnt give me any warnings that say, "WARNING: THIS COST EXTRA" or anything like that.

    Works great for me. I don't think there is a fee to use it either. I have a friend with an EVO that does it all the time and has never had to pay for it. Different carriers I know, but I'd assume if anyone was going to charge for it, then everyone would. At least I hope.

    Well, at least now we know what the first feature VZW will remove from our next OS upgrade is.

    Awesome find, though.
