    Webtop / Lapdock should not require a tethering plan. At least that's the current status.

    I wouldn't think it would need a plan anyhow, but thanks for the info.

    On a side note, have you tried tethering the Bionic without using Verizon's plan and app?

    Have not tried tethering without the Verizon Plan / App. How would one even go about doing that? (tethering without the app)

    On AT&T, if you use the Lapdock with the Motorola Atrix, it requires a tethering plan to use the AT&T network in lapdock mode.

    I went in to a Verizon company store today to check on this and I was told using the lapdock is considered "docking" and as long as I am just putting my phone in the lapdock, not connecting any other device there will be no extra charge (except data if you don't have unlimited and go over on that). They said it is NOT like AT&T. This makes it much more appealing!
