    I was under the impression that it only worked if you were in a 4G area and I was on the phone while tethered to my laptop. I pressed the refresh button not thinking that I was tethered to my phone and I was expecting to get a "page cannot be displayed". Nope, it refreshed. I was kinda shocked at first, so then I downloaded an app from the market while on the phone. Sure enough, it downloaded.

    Also, the store that I purchased my TB from said that Verizon is running a hotspot promotion through mid-April for unlimited data $20/month. Anyone else heard this? If this is the case, I'm signing up and cancelling internet at home, cuz Im only there a week of the month.

    Are you sure you heard them correctly? We have free hotspot for the TB until May 15th.

    Yea, well he didnt even know that there was a free hot-spot till May, but I asked him if he was sure and he said yes. IDK but I hope someone can confirm this. I saw on Twitter this morning that AT&T is cracking down on illegal tethering, so I'm sure big red won't be far behind 'em.

    Yes I was told the same thing. Apparently the "free" was a mis-print. The promotion is $20.00 for unlimited tethering until May 15th, then its $20.00 for 2gb. But once we able to root the TB we can tether for free anytime.

    Wait so we're going to get charged for $20/month for tethering now? I thought it was free until April.

    That makes more sense, but it better be free til mid May or I'll be calling Verizon.
