Default $10 Wifi Hotspot addon

Since we can inevitably root this device and create our own hotspot for free. Do you believe Boost Mobile will be on our case for this ? I believe Verizon and ATT throttle for unpaid hotspot ability ?

Well I doubt they can get on to us since they have no way of telling if you just a heavy data user or use wireless tether for root unless they spy on you , But with todays bandwidth hungry apps who can tell unless you call them and tell em you tether hehe

The 10 bucks a month is for legitimate tethering. Technically its a violation of the terms of service if you root your phone and tether. But I've been with boost since the prevail came out, tethering up 4gb a month with no issues. But there is always a chance they could disconnect you

Sometime later this year they will start data caps and will limit all users to 2.5 GB a month and after that they will throttle it to 3G speeds. So enjoy your unlimited tether while you can. :P

Unless buying the tether option gets one a higher data cap, then I might actually consider buying it...once my shrinkage goes down to 40. That won't be for another year though. :P

Well we recently found that the throttling is controlled by your phone. It's in the /data/system/throttle folder. If someone can check their htc for that folder to see if it exists, we can confirm it's across all the boost line. The warp, the transform, the prevail, confirmed. It's a simple fix to lock it down

Really? I always thought the carrier would do that at their end...

I checked and my phone does indeed have that folder. There's a couple files in it as well.

To my knowledge it has not been confirmed to actually work ... however I deleted the files on my transform ultra and this evo too... I hope it does do the trick.... lucky us if it does

I usually use 3 to 4 GB a month. It just depends on what you use your phone for.

I think my record is 7gb in a month when I was with tmo. But in addition to normal phone stuff my 4g was (and still is) fast enough to use as my home internet, so I'd tether it to my computer, my ps3, etc

I literally use between 40 to 60 gigs in a months time. Is that normal?...........probably not. But I'm with sprint, and unlimited data is great!

I'm going to try deleting that folder and see if I can get past 2.67 mb/s per second. Fingers crossed

40gb a month? You sure? With Sprint/Boost's abysmal speed that is quite a feat. Are you on 4g? Aside from the speed issue what the he** do you do with it? Netflix 24/7?

I'm an intensive user but I use about 150-200 megs a day at work and I work 6 days. I might put a dent on Boost (being that I'm on the last rung of shrinkage) but they've never called me or indicated that I'm causing problems.

Yea I'm sure. I Netflix everyday, besides that, I download movies, Wii games, albums, ....... And the list goes on.
I'm not sure what shrinkage is. pretty sure that's just boost. And unfortunately I'm not on 4g.
