    though it may be short lived. For almost a month I have been living without standard internet.. so I have been tethering using different ways (wireless, wired) using three different programs/drivers to cater to my tethering needs. Although it's not as fast as my fios connection was, it is a helluva lot faster than dial up. haha. Onto the goods.

    Mind you, that's since the 13th or 14th, however they do it.

    Does anyone else tether like that? Or see data usage that high?

    We pay for unlimited and this is the first time I have ever done it, this passed month. Amazing, huh?

    Abe raises a good point. It may be an increase when we renew.

    ....so let's live in fear and not take advantage of features because MAYBE, sometime in the future, they may change things up because I heard somebody on the inturwebz said so.....



    I tell you what, whenever I ruin it for others by doing what the O.P. is doing (tethering for my primary home inet), I'll quickly and quietly call my cable company back and keep my cable, drop my home phone, and pick up inet (since that would be the cheapest possible way for me)

    im not trying to scare anyone. just saying dont expect this to continue on because VZW will be imposing tiered data plans.

    no need to get all high and mighty..

    I really hope that Verizon doesn't ruin a good thing with tiered data prices and potentially ruining the droid experience.

    If they have tiered data prices when my contract is up I'm leaving Verizon. Time to get an Android device on another carrier

    The problem with that thinking is a "follow the leader" mentality the wireless carriers have. Sprint has said they will implement tiered data if usage becomes a problem. T-Mobile will no doubt do the same. It's just a matter of when we'll see it across the board.

    Just because they go to tiered data does not mean they won't still offer an unlimited plan as well

    At&t has 200 mb data plan for 15$/month wtf?. I use more than that in a day just listening to music or howard stern. At&t also said 2/3 of their users actually are saving money with their new tiered rates. What are I phone users using their phones for?

    Meh, people who abuse things like that are kinda annoying because in the long term if it ends effecting me or someone else (i.e. them ending the unlimited data plan.) we basically get pay for the abuse. If you wanna get on the computer at home or laptop on the go, PAY FOR HOME INTERNET OR A CHIP FOR SAID LAPTOP. Jeez I mean its simple nothing in life is free, you want something pay for it that simple! People who abuse an who are given an inch an take a mile, seriously are ridiculous! Any who theres my two cents.
