    Tethering is against the TOS.

    I'll take note of that and completely disregard wifi-hotspotting is also against tos and I see a lot of people talking about it on the forums.

    Also I was thinking about tethering wifi which are far as I know is not against the tos.

    Any tethering is against Virgin's TOS. They offer this service through their broadband2go with a mifi device.

    They are referring to their paid data service. I was referring to tethering my wireless internet which is a different story. Who ever reads those tos things anyway?

    Tethering your wireless internet? As in using the Optimus V as a wifi card? As opposed to:

    Easy Tether works best for me.
    and yea its against VM TOS, but thats not stopping anyone. its going to happen anyway, unless you physically make them not do it. rules get broken, its part of life.
    and im not encouraging it, just simply answering a question.
    and im sure that happyroot is trying to say, using his/her phone as a wifi card, to access his/her home (or other) wifi network(not virgin mobiles mobile data/web/network, but another ISP) because his/her computer does not have a built in wifi card, not using it to gain internet access through mobile web. which is not in VM's TOS because its not using their services.
