    Should there be any concerns with using wifi tether on my DROID X? Like how much is the MAX of use I should use, just so I know... I have the unlimited data plan from Verizon so that shouldn't be too bad, but I wouldn't want them catching on. ;) LOL

    Also, I'm a little worried about overheating. It's running about 35C right now, so what level is dangerous? Is there any methods to keep the heat level down? (I am not using any custom ROMS, no overclocking, non of that; I am only using the wifi tether)

    As far as I know they will have absolutely no clue... Your phone is taking its 3g signal and broadcasting it... I don't believe it will use any of your data even though you are on a unlimited data plan..

    Its no different than you downloading youtube videos all day... That would probably take up more data than simply broadcasting your 3g..
