    If you root your phone can you take advantage of the unlimited data and provide internet for a computer? I know it can be done with the iphone when it is jailbreaked.

    I would love to but when I start wireless tether I connect and it goes to Verizon Internet page to purchase plan. Wireless hot spots is off wireless tehtermis on and it show yellow shield that i am connected. But nope version wireless page always comes up, so can't use Internet unless i buy plan. Is there a way around it. Or a new hack or mod I didn't download?

    If you are on the Gingerbread update that just came out, the only way to tether is to use a rom that has a way around it or go back to froyo

    I heard verizon somehow put a stop to the free tethering. Is there any truth to this?

    Verizon does not allow tethering without a paid tethering plan on your account. If you do want to tether for free, visit the Droid 2 section and choose a custom rom (after rooting of course) and flash it. After flashing you should have the ability to enjoy free tethering.

    Tethering is NOT illegal. Lol. It is however against the service agreement with your provider.

    Just about all rooted users have or do it. I don't recommended using it as your ISP ....that is why the wanna crack down on tethering is because of that.
