So if you are just debating... that you can keep doing it because no one has posted proof that VZW is cracking down... then this is a totally pointless thread.No one's arguing that tethering is against the ToS. They're arguing that it doesn't matter that it's against the ToS because
1) you can't get caught (debatable, but see 2)
2) no one can put forth any proof that you can get caught
Stop posting VZW's service agreement. We all know what's on it. We're just saying it doesn't matter. I can show you many people on these boards that tether routinely and have not had their contracts canceled or been slapped with a huge bill.
I've still yet to see anyone with evidence of canceled accounts or huge bills. The $18000 bill was for something completely different (his data contract ran out, so they charged him per MB)
There's only one hard fact here:
No one has shown any proof that VZW is actively cracking down on tethering by canceling contracts or making you pay huge bills.
Note I didn't say "they're not cracking down", or "they can't", or "they won't". Just that no one has showed that "they definitely are".
There are a lot of things we can apply this logic too. Shall we start talking/debating that too?
As posted earlier in this thread... its the same as saying... Since I wont get caught speeding it must be ok even though its against the law... and since no one has provided me proof they got a ticket going down this stretch of road, it must be ok for me to speed down it. And I'll just keep doing it until I get caught, or someone else posts proof.
Agreed. This is a pointless thread if the arguments are
1] You can't prove that they do and
2] You can't prove that they don't.
Which is essentially what it is haha...I'll stick with the fact that they can absolutely prove that you are, and if they wanted to they'd have a right to charge you for tethering.
