Same here. I don't care about Tethering. I used it once or twice with my Droid 1 when I was on an IT repair job and didn't have WiFi. I can see how Verizon wants to stop those users from tethering 160+GB, so I think this is good. Rather than move to tiered data, start doing stuff like this. Yeah, you guys pay for $30 for unlimited 3G/4G but that's on your PHONE. The infrastructure for wireless data for your phone is simple, you can't download that much. Now tethering with a PC, you're going to have 10x+ data which is 10x stress on the 3g/4g networks. That's why they're limiting and charging more for tethering. I'll gladly pay for tethering even if I only use it a little. $20 is nothing when I'm working 2 jobs and need a feature like this. My main concern is, if I'm paying for tethering, I'd like to use my own tethering app, but ultimately, I'm paying to use Verizon's service, so if they want me to use their tethering app, OK, Fine. Hateslinger - I've tethered for about 2 mins on my Thunderbolt and it didn't get hot hot, but didn't have enough time to. On my Droid 1, it would get to 45C easy just by tethering websites lightly.
