    Quick question if anyone is familiar. I tethered my phone with PDAnet to my laptop and was able to play WoW just fine. I currently have the unlimited data plan, will this affect my bill or make it appear suspicious? From everywhere I looked it seems to be fine. What are your thoughts? Thanks

    If they looked at the data usage for that timeframe it may look suspect but that should be it.

    My 12 yr old sister tethered her droid (don't ask) and was playing an online game. Used 9Gb of data and Verizon didn't bat an eyelash

    If you have the unlimited plan they cant do anything to you. They cant prove that you tethered your phone unless you take it into the store and even then its hard for them to prove it. But wow is going to draw huge data so I would still be careful.

    Actually, if they keep any record of what's going where, it'd be painfully easy for them to know that you're tethering...

    How many customers does Verizon Wireless Network have?

    even if they did keep a record it would be so long and theres so many ppl who are tethering there droids because they pay for it. It would take alot of time and they probably wont do anything. If they did how are you breaching the contract?

    Lots of good insight guys, I appreciate it greatly. It still surprises me that a game of this magnitude can be played smoothly with a tethered internet connection.

    Just a warning to you: Playing WoW when you're teathered is pretty painful. WoW doesn't handle frames too well when your network connection sucks.

    I bet i'm on verizon's hit list!

    Obviously I can't torrent while i'm in college so what do I do?
    Wireless Tether all the way!

    Some days 5Gb straight!
    Other days 8Gb straight!

    I don't even want to look at my data usage!


    However, after about 4Gb the signal starts to go in and out, but after the 7gb mark it seems to stabilize. Weird.

    Anyway going to keep doing it unless Verizon can convince my school that torrents are good. dancedroid

    Well I do everything from my phone, Pandora Radio, email, facebook, twitter, teather, World of Warcraft, streaming pod casts, pretty much absolutely everything that can consume data I use daily. And Verizon has never said a word. Let's hope the trend continues.

    Nobody has ever been singled out and charged a ton for data from tethering their android phone yet. Notice the last word "yet". If it happens to you, your name and situation for getting busted would be on all the android blogs because you'd be the first from VZW.
