    I will say this.
    Any business can refuse you service provided it hurts their business.
    Thas the bottom line.

    Please stop with this. Its like going to Golden Corral or other all you can eat buffet. We paid X amount to eat. If you eat less than Bubba, Bubba isn't the cause if prices go up. VZW wants more revenue so they did this. plain and simple. If no one went over 2GB, they'd justify it by saying everyone uses 2GB or less, rather than the 95% use 2GB or less now.

    Money, plain and simple drives VZW

    I bet they needed a few more upgrades this month to meet their quota.

    Can you please post the exact link that states this if he has the tethering package?

    Sounds to me like the friggin' VZW CFO flunked EN 104 in college. Or do they teach a different sort of English in the Ivy League Biz Schools... :)

    I believe he did by signing up for VZW monthly tethering.

    I agree. Verizon offered "unlimited tethering" to other devices and he's using it. I don't really see how he's in the wrong here. Is it what Verizon intended? Maybe not, but I'm not sure how they can tell him he's using too much data on an unlimited plan or that he's sharing his internet with too many devices since he pays for tethering.

    although i DO NOT agree with his data usage and yes i would toss this user to curb for rthat much usage he is right. apple has massive subsidies. It was no coincidence, verizon even said thats why they ended it all if im not mistaken...

    "Unlimited" was never that in any case with Verizon. It's like that with most ISP's. Lets play a did you know game:) If you are a Comcast/Xfinity subscriber call them and ask what the data limit is? Not many know this but it is 250 GB. How do I know this? Well, here we go. I have Comcast/Xfinity service and run a D-Link wireless N RangeMax router. I have 2 desktop PC's (one wired that is used by myself only for personal/business needs) and one for whoever wants to use it. Also I have 2 laptops, 4 tablets, Wii, XBox 360 that run using it. Now this router is unique in a way that you can transmit 2 separate signals. One I have encrypted for security and the other is a open network for guests.

    Comcast calls me one day and tells me I have a virus due to them seeing extreme data usage. They tell me that I normally use between 100 - 150 GB monthly but I had hit the threshold of 250 GB. Weird, I check all my PC's and all are fine. All are protected by Norton 360 and were clear of viruses. I then go to my router and see the devices connected to it. There were 26!!!! devices on my guest side!! My leaching/cheap ass neighbors were killing me!!!!

    The end! Thats my story:biggrin:

    Hey, an open network is just that. If they hacked you secure side then they would be leaching/cheap asses. I can not believe the number of people that do not turn on basic security!

    I understand the "open" part. It was the amount of Data they were consuming. That was the point I was making BUT leaching/cheap they are....if they weren't they would have their own "home" internet and use their own. I now run to secure signals. Though I may unlock one and name it "FBI surveilence van" LOL

    Just run an open network that flips all the images. Google "upsidedownternet" for instructions. Or, use blurrynet. :D
