    Default Verizon cracking down on tethering?
    If you look on CNN, engadget, and Cnet, there are articles claiming that like AT&T, Verizon is starting to crack down on iPhone and Android users who use apps like MyWi to tether. One of the articles said Verizon users were redirected to Verizonwireless.com when they tethered their iPhone to another device. My question is, has anyone here gotten a warning, text, or been redirected to Verizonwireless.com when tethering?

    i've read that if you try to tether your data without a plan, they re-direct the website that your trying to go on to a verizon website about subscribing to a tether data plan? can someone confirm with some screen-shots if this is already happening?

    I've used mywi with my unlimited data and I've had no issues at all, I just don't use it heavy as I primarily use my Ipad on the road.
