    Been searching around the web and there seems to be a Consensus about Unlimited data lately...

    AndroidPolice.com is reporting that they have confirmed that the $10xtra will offer unlimited 3G and 4G.... no just 4G as some may previously reported

    the $30 tethering from my understanding.. would not be capped. I did not ask the 4 million reps I talked to yesterday about it because it isn't a feature that I would utilize at the moment :)

    If thats the case I would really drop my 60/month plan on ATT... and just use the phone... Especially when 4G becomes available in Boston(Lets go Celtics)... and New York (both of which I frequent) by the end of the summer.

    The question is though.... WHICH I asked Verizon techs in stores today is if the Hotspot feature on the PRE works simultaneously with voice.... frankly the floor reps don;t know jack shit so they found a tech and he said no. Which i assumed would be the case because of the whole CDMA nature of things....

    So I would assume that I wouldn't be able to simultaneously tether and use Voice until 4G is Live where I frequent...

    You assume correctly. Voice + tether works on 4G and Wi-Fi--nothing else.

    It's all unlimited.

    The $10 fee gets you unlimited 3G/4G surfing (though it's not optional)

    The optional $29.99 hotspot add-on allows you to utilize UNLIMITED 3G OR 4G...much better deal than the mobile broadband devices themselves.

    Right now I use an overdrive device as my only home internet connection.. I will give the EVO a shot at doing the same thing.. I am honestly don't think it will pull it off the way the overdrive does..

    I am hoping for the best.. The overdrive gets extremely warm when it it charging I can't see that not being an issue on the EVO as well..

    I hear you. I would definitely confirm before committing to using the EVO as my main home internet connection, but still, it's pretty nice that if the phone is deemed capable, you can do it for a great price.

    Also, off-topic, but your location is listed as 'bat cave.' Is that a joke, or do you actually live in Bat Cave, NC? If you do, you're pretty close by.
