    Using any form of tethering that bypasses the required paid tethering plan is a violation of Verizon's TOS. Discussions of this nature cannot and are not allowed on this forum.

    From the forum rules:

    These type of discussions can result in infractions in the future.

    Well that is a pretty dumb policy.

    Worked for me. And didn't Verizon get sued for doing this with bluetooth features and lose because you are not allowed to restrict the hardware capabilities of a phone the customer owns.

    bluetooth, and even up to cable companies trying to charge "by the computer" that is connecting to a "landline" service.

    However, your TOS with VZW do not allow this unless you have a specific plan. I'd imagine that the VZW HotSpot is working, but I don't use it. Mod was correct in this decision.

    Actually I think it's more than he said, I think the TOS say you must use the VZW SOFTWARE, not just have the PLAN, but I'd have to re-read to doublecheck.

    As far as the policies of this forum are concerned you are free to take them up with the man who owns the site (Rob) and pays the bills any time you want.

    I tired to leave this topic open so that people could discuss the issue itself if they wanted to. I see now that that was a mistake.
