    So how much do you think Verizon will charge for the mobile hotspot feature when it comes to the incredible via froyo? Considering the pre has the service for free.

    Same as USB tethering.

    That doesn't seem right to provide one phone a free service and charge another phone for the same service

    It does when they're trying to get rid of inventory.

    Well I'm well aware of why they did it for the pre. I just didn't look at it like the "promotion" it must be just to sell devices. Kind of a bummer tho. I'll have to try pdanet and connectify.
  8. This is one aspect that pisses me off about Verizon. I currently have an unlimited data plan, how can they get off charging me more to use data when I currently have an unlimited plan?

    They can't claim that they are charging for the feature itself as it comes with 2.2 and they had nothing to do with its development. I have very little need for the tethering option as I don't have a laptop, it just irritates me that they charge for a feature they have nothing to do with on top of my unlimited data plan.

    The sales rep at the VZW store actually tried defending it by saying "you have to think from the corporations point of view." I'm sorry, what? From the corporations point of view? They aren't already making enough money so they need to hit me for an additional data fee each month? BS!!!! This is plain profiteering, but as irritating as it is, they have every right to do it.
