Default So, who's tethering? Will VM just charge us the extra 15 bux?

If you use there wifi hotspot app, will they know and charge you extra at the next month? We're prepaid right?

Money Nice Idea

If i pay a extra 15 dollars for that you might as well start selling that connection for people to connect to the hotspot

You'll come up against the 3.5GB soft cap very quickly.

That sounds like an issue on VM...there IS a cap, they state it when you sign up.

also I am using tethering via harmonic's rom

4G is unrestricted.
After 2.5 gigs of ANY data, your 3g will be throttled. 4G is left untouched.

I love how this still is being debated. I still would assume that 4G is throttled once you reach the cap. Can you confirm your statement though?

all i know is when i signed up i had the option to have 2.5gb data, and after that I would get throttled speeds, if i spent an extra 15/mo id get an extra 1gb and the ability to tether(which i already knew i could get via root.) so i opted to decline that offer....seriously since when is 1gb bandwith and UNGIMPING my phone worth 15$? ill do the ungimping myself....which I did.

Virgin's press release says 2.5gigs even for 4g, however they were contacting media outlets and saying it was unlimited. For the last 2 months Virgin hasn't gotten any press release 100% right.

Sprint has an unlimited bandwidth contract with Clearwire for Wimax, it does nothing to Sprint if you use 200gigs of Wimax data, it's not their network you are using.

explains why 4g was rolled out sooner here than even many other major cities...we have a clearwire corporate office here in st. louis...

I've watched a bunch of HD vids (thanks to Mobstergunz HD tweak) on YouTube but the VM site isn't showing my data usage. Also downloaded a handful of ROMs using 4G and I had to have hit 2.5 gigs by now so idk.
