Anyone know the details of this service? It seems to always be running. I've heard rumors that it might be tracking data usage and making sure Verizon get's their "entitlement" for the additional tethering plans... Hope not as I've done the "entitlement_check" SQLite hack. What would happen if I uninstalled this? It's been frozen for a while but to not avail it keeps running in the background.

The entitlement check that u see in sqlite is just there to check ur features on the verizon sever to see if u have the mobile hot spot feature it does not track if u turn off the entitlement check via sqlite by putting 0 in place of the 1 i just removes the server check an thats all it does

Right I know that so what about this service? Check out this thread I found on the Bionic:
Droid Bionic wireless tether reverse engineering [Archive] - xda-developers

While tethering your phone will disconnect and reconnect to the network using alternate credentials containing your ISMI. These credentials appear to originate from the SIM card ... I would assume that using this they can actually verify who is paying for tethering and who isn't by comparing these connections to who is actually paying for the service.

Sounds a little sketchy
 
is there a way to get mobile hot spot WITHOUT paying for it?
 
i am rooted, i looked at that web site but it only says you can do 3g.....do you know if it does 4g but just doesn't advertise it?

Well in regards to the service, I uninstalled it. Everything seems to be working just fine
 
I tried using Titanium to force remove the Motorola services but after the reboot I now appear to have it running twice. What was your method of removing it?
