    Easy tether you mean?

    What about the stock USB tethering?

    Yes and no.

    Technically, you are supposed to pay vzw to do so. But there are apps that let you do it without paying.

    You can still do it today, but just be warned that if caught they can do stuff like auto add it or have it redirect you ti the "you gotta pay up" page.

    The native USB tethering on the Bionic does not give any warnings about charging you like it does if you try and use the built in WiFi tether. My understanding is that people are using it and not getting charged. Without a charge warning I am sure you could fight them on it if you were charged. I tried it for a minuet and have not noticed any charges. If I use it for any substantial amount of time I will report back.

    I've been using the native USB tethering since a few days after I got my Bionic and through 2 billing cycles they haven't charged me for it.

    I am using it for travel right now. I will definatly post back if i get a bill. It it says nothing about being billed.
    Probably they just forgot to lock it down & when they figure it out it will get an uppdate pushed out locking it.
