You do have it.
what means does the droid x use to enable the mobile hotspot and how does verizon track it??
bc we can tether via bluetooth and also through rooting (i think?), and as far as i know, these 2 methods wont charge extra
They will not "turn on" the $20month tethering package because they think you are using it. They will only turn it on if you have them turn it on. Go ahead and try it, it won't work because you haven't turned it on (though mine works for some reason, even though it isn't on My Account). Also, the phone/app doesn't track the usage, Verizon would track the usage.they wont charge extra for now....but when they see your usage they will get ya. dont thik they dont track your data usage.
Root, problem solved. Otherwise you will have to pay extra unfortunately. It sucks they didn't mention it costs money. Either they meant to mislead you or they were ignorant. Either one of those possibilities are probable.
