It seems to me that as more people get Android devices through Verizon, tethering is getting talked about more and more. People ask about it and others answer "oh yeah use PDANet it's great I use it all the time" "sure root your phone and replace your satellite internet with a wifi tethered connection" "I connect my PS3 through it and it runs fine". Rarely does anyone mention that it IS a violation of your contract and most people dismiss it saying Verizon won't catch you. It would certainly be nice if tethering was included in our data like other devices Verizon has, but it isn't. If things keep following this trend, is there a risk that Big Red is going to do something about it? Currently the data plan for the smartphone itself is unlimited. It would probably be a real pain in the ass for Verizon to find every single customer who has been tethering without a tethering data plan, but mightn't Verizon decide to put a cap on our smartphone plans? I'd like to think that I'm overestimating the potential problem. To me it seems that as more people get Android devices, perhaps people who don't really know much about what they are doing, and this lax attitude towards violating your contract spreads, Verizon might take some action. P.S. I put this in the root section because it seems that wifi tethering is one of the reasons a lot of people seem to want to root but move it if it's more appropriate somewhere else. Also, I should mention that I'm sure a little bit of tethering really doesn't do anything, but I'm not sure those same people who are exchanging advice on how to commit insurance fraud because they want a new phone are responsible enough not to overuse it.
