    I have a Galaxy S3 which is rooted, and I couldn't get any tethering apps to work while the VPN was enabled on the phone itself.

    I work from home, we have unlimited data from Verizon, and my wife has the $30 per month tethering plan on her phone. I want to travel a bit for work, and want to tether using my phone, but don't want to add an additional $30 per month.

    I always use a VPN on my laptop anyway, so the data should be encrypted, and Verizon shouldn't be able to tell if it's phone data or PC data, right?
