    why should he get banned? He could be using PDAnet which is free or just paid 2.00 for tetherme. I know he said free but he might of meant just cheaper. But the former is definately free until you register.

    Or Verizon has the same shocking revelation that AT&T did--if you offer unlimited data on an iPhone (or any other smartphone/tablet device, granted, but the iPhone seems to be the most-blamed culprit) you WILL get some jerks who WILL use 50 GiB a month and totally abuse both the price and congest the network thoroughly--and therefore revert to the no-unlimited tiered structure.
    Then It will finally be time to switch to t-mobile or sprint who aren't afraid of the word unlimited. Besides nobody complains when you talk for 5000 minutes or send 10 million texts a month. You must be an AT&T employee.

    Damn Bro, you got played. I added a line,switched to a family plan with a second iphone for my wife. My data plan stayed the same but she could only get 2gb's.

    same here. I've had every iPhone available so far, and have an unlimited data plan. I do use about 15gb a month through MyWi, but to be courteous to other AT&T users I don't do anything that produces heavy traffic during the day. I just currently live in military barracks where there is no standard Internet available, so this is my only option.

    Why would you hope he gets banned? Just because he said he got it without paying for it? He didn't ask for a way to get it for free or post how to.

    Banned my be a little harsh, But. He rudely posted his beliefs while being ignorant. This discussion is about the WiFi feature. He called us (mywi users) "Not Smart Enough" to get free tether. Most tether users could usb and bluetooth tether for free for a long time. Most of us ARE smart enough. But try to create a hotspot on his method. And a power adjustable, passworded wifi, hotspot to boot. Sure we could have spent a lot of time to use the old ver pdanet but that takes time. $20 is a small price to pay for a great app that can hotspot and on the side enables usb/BT tether. But we all had free usb/bt tether for a long time. So read before you post helps to fight ignorance or someone may suggest to ban. IMO

    I refuse to pay for the same data plan twice a month. Unless im getting another unlimited (5gb package) to tether (not that i need it) I will never pay for their damn monthly fee for tethering.

    MiWi FTW forever. This is one of the main reasons I will never give up my jailbreak!

    OH BTW this was taken from Verizon's website. for reading pleasure.

    "Will any Verizon Wireless apps be available on iPhone?

    iPhone will have the 3G Mobile Hotspot app pre-installed, and it will also have other popular apps available in the market such as VZ Navigator, and V CAST Media Manager. "

    I understand what your saying. It just seems funny when i see people always saying "I hope you get banned". That's all.

    Yea so? VZ nav is poopy and the Vcast is annoying. As will be their pre-installed apps they will charge you for more per month.

    Again, MiWi ftw.

    Yeah.. def got the shaft on that one. I lowered my minutes in my family plan and added a second iphone for my wife too. Data is still the same, still grandfathered in at $30 for unlimited... Just checked, this had me worried for a moment.

    Your change in minutes should not affect your data plan - period. If it did, call them back and make it happen. Don't settle for excuses. They can "give it back" & did it for me wihtout losing rollover either.

    You can threaten moving to Verizon for your iPhone.

    You should go back and talk to them.
    If you had unlimited data, you should be grandfathered in just like me.
    I even changed phones recently. I had an iphone 3GS and now I have an iphone 4.
    I asked when switching, and they said I would be grandfathered in.
