Son has a question I can't answer (and I know someone here can):

How, exactly, can Verizon tell from the data packets that a person is tethering, versus just using the phone a lot? I mean, he Skypes on the phone. He can also tether and Skype on the laptop.

Are there discrete "laptop" data tags that specifically identify that packet as laptop data so that Verizon knows he's tethering?
