    EDIT: So I finally got my s4 phone which I live with the exception of no longer having unlimited data. I was wondering if I use my old rooted droid 2 phone with the wifi tether app for root users to gain wifi on my gs4 would I be using data to get charged$?

    Started to wonder if I shouldve just shelved out 650 for a new contract to keep my unlimited, as rediculous as that sounded to me

    If you still have a data plan with your old phone, I don't see why not. But you have lost unlimited on the line your s4 is on.

    If you buy it full retail your plan doesn't change, so you don't lose unlimited.

    Your old d2, assuming it has a data connection still, can be used to tether to your s4. Wifi tether app allows you to take your phone's data capabilities and use it as a hotspot to tether to other devices.

    And as I and many others have explained in your other thread, there were ways to keep your unlimited data while upgrading to the s4, you chose to believe Verizon instead.

    Closing this thread as it's nothing more than a re-hashing of another thread now also under evaluation for being closed.
