    I am leaving my Junior college to go to a university and I know wifi at colleges aren't to good. If I tether from my phone would verizon catch me? How much data should I use so I don't get caught?

    you can use the sqlite editor on the bionic to get around verizons grip . there is video on youtube with step by step directions. long as you have unlimited data you should be fine.

    You can USB tether freely. Verizon doesn't care about that, or stop it. As long as you have an LTE phone. 3G phones they do want you to pay.

    Tethering is a breach of contract, it's that simple. That being said I tether myself and there really is no way for Verizon to catch you, however if they do they have every right to terminate your contract.

    As a college student myself, my university's wifi is pretty good. The only thing it's slow in is downloading, which I'm sure goes for every school, but browsing is quite fast.

    USB Tethering on an LTE device seems okay. They don't even put up that page telling you to pay. Unlike 3G devices which do. Keep in mind this is without any 3rd party app, or hacking.
