    Heres what I understand:

    $30 Unlimited Data plan to the phone (as usual)

    Optional $20 Wifi Tethering with 2GB cap (through Verizon App?)


    When 2.2 comes out, will the built in Android Wifi hotspot be removed? Or will it work without the $20 wifi plan?

    Most likely the native tethering will be locked - you might get lucky with a rooted device though :p

    Thats basically what Im hoping. The smart guys at XDA can enable bult-in tether so that vzw cant tell :) that would be pure gold.
