Ok so I'm currently having an argument with a friend. He seems to think Verizon will have no problem detecting the fact that I'm tethering regardless of how much I actually use my phone as a hotspot. I told him I should have no problem as long as I don't download ridiculous amounts of data. He tells me that mobile browsers are coded to only pull less data from a website than a PC browser would. I think this notion is silly. I realize that many sites will redirect you to a mobile version of their site, but most offer a "full site" link. So it's not that the browser itself is pulling less data, it's that the site is just sending less data. If Verizon could bag you for clicking the "full site" link then everyone would be losing their service. So I guess my main question is: Does verizon (or any other carrier) have a way to detect if you are tethering other than the amount of data you are pulling per month?
