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

    System version 4.5.605.MB810.Verizon.en.US
    Android version 2.3.3

    I rooted to kill bloatware and use wireless tether. I think I got an OTA because it killed root, but I rerooted and all was well. Now if I try to use wireless tether, I can connect but get nothing- but if I open a web browser on the laptop I get directed to Verizon's "pay up for wifi tethering" page.

    Did the OTA kill it? Can I get it back? This upset me quite a bit, but not nearly as much as Googling "Verizon wifi tether disabled" on the phone and getting redirected to the same "pay for it" webpage I got on my laptop!

    I use wifi tethering on my work laptop through a VPN for work correspondence. It has worked for me for more than a year with no issues. I only need it maybe twice a month for maybe a few kilobytes. I already pay for unlimited data and I will NOT pony up another $20 for the tiny bit of data I use up with tethering.

    Do I need to reflash? Can I disable the OTA? Or can I fix as is (since I have literally no other problems) ???
