Tethering is using your smartphone's to provide your Nexus 7 a Wi-Fi Hotspot. Just installed "Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot" from the Playstore that supports ICS & Jelly Bean. It is simple to use like a light switch to turn on and off. Just down load to both your phone and N7. Then set up you 8 letter password on you phone after you turn on the tether option. Then connect the N7 like you do to any other Wi-Fi. Just understand that depending on your data plan your Verzion bill could get very expensive if you use a lot of data.
Thanks for the info. Now that I have an idea of what it is, I don't see any reason that would make me want to do it. I have wifi at home and for the most part, every place I frequent and use my N7 has it also. If I'm somewhere that doesn't have wifi, I'll just use my phone. It also does everything that I do on the N7 for the most part, just a bit smaller.

I've tried at least 3 different hotspot apps on my TMo Note 2 and none of them work. When I had my S2 on TMo about 7 months ago I never had a problem using the hotspot apps so I dont know if its a device issue or if TMo has just clamped down on this.
