    Droid-Life has received word from Verizon regarding tethering plans after their plans switch on July 7th. Here's a direct quote from the Droid-Life article,
    Apparently, around the 7th, an automatic update will be pushed out to several phones including the Motorola Droid Charge, the HTC Thunderbolt and the LG Revolution that will cut-off their current tethering service, and ask you to purchase the new plan. If you are not grand-fathered in, VZW's $20 2GB tier will be available to new 4G LTE customers that sign up after the 6th.

    Although this plan is a bit pricey, and paid data tethering is a contentious issue, it's still nice to see that Big Red is offering an unlimited option for some. What do you think?

    So If I go buy a LTE device tomorrow, and have unlimited data, I will be grandfathered in to unlimited LTE service to my device? No tethering of course.

    This issue kinda pisses me off. You're using one connection, who cares if it shared with your own stuff? They want to double charge us for the same band with.

    I wouldn't put much faith in unlimited tethering... Verizon already lied about unlimited data usage that's not truly unlimited.

    I don't know why Verizon just doesn't put a 5 or 10 gb cap on for everybody and call it good?

    What's confusing is that the way I read it, you must have a 4G phone before July 7th in order to get the unlimited tethering package beginning July 7th. For anyone getting a 4G phone on July 7th or later, you can only get the $20 2GB tethering package. The way others are interpreting it, as long as you have the unlimited data package on a 4G phone, then you can get unlimited tethering for $30. Only those on tiered data packages have to get the tiered tethering.
