I know there are other threads on this but what I need to ask isn't really explained or it is npot exactly what I am looking for so here goes anyway......... i just got the Sprint Overdrive 3g/4g but now I am thinking on returning it as I was talking to Advanced Support about the 5 gig limit as 4g is not yet available in my area and he made a comment about there are ways of getting around using your phone as a modem as Sprint is now fazing out their tethering options but he made a comment that they really don't have any way of monitoring your phone to see if you are tethering except for maybe using an humongous amount of data and so I already knew about pdanet as I just tried it out on my hero and it just picked it right up, but what I want to know if this is true. i can't see paying for the overdrive when I would only be using pdanet on occasion when I travel but I can't afford to pay for cable and the overdrive so just need to know if anyone has actually gotten nailed using pdanet. I just don't want to get caught and I know there are alot of people out there using pdanet and now I am seeing some using easytether so are either one of these safe to use without getting charged? OBTW, I have the HTC Hero and it is not rooted. Thanks in advance!
