    Bamf on HTC. Stock prime

    Default Now that I'm rooted can I use Mobile Hotspot and not be charged?

    can I use The Mobile Hotspot app that came with the phone or should I download something else??? What about tethered modem? Can I use that as well. Is there an app I should download from the market for that so I don't get charged by VZ?

    verizon should have included the hot spot with the unlimited plan, even if it raised the price a little

    Also I didnt think verizon capped the data plan, I know everyone says there is a 5GB cap but has anyone found it in writing anywhere?

    I use it occasionally, but it is shady. Just paid my bill, Verizon stold several hundred minutes back I paid for ha ha. If I sip a GB in a month and pay unlimited data and only use 3 GB in a month, my conscious is clean. I don't mind paying...but I better get to keep my minutes then!

    When I purchased my TB the data plan stated unlimited, but that was for the phone's data. I don't find tether to be all that great, slow speeds, and problems connecting.

    Some say its fair, some say its stealing. I say read the terms of service an decide for yourself, and if they do catch you the terms of service explain what they can and cannot do.

    Its a personal choice and not a yes or no question.

    This tool require a netfilter-enabled kernel. Judging from the discussions in here and here, it seems that EACH device requires specific netfilter thingy.

    Anybody every got "Wireless Tether for Root" application (from Marketplace) to work on their Thunderbolt?

    Does anyone know if Wireless Tether for Root works with stock ROM? The Google project webpage doesn't specify this.

    No, but that just sucks your battery unless you're connecting multiple computers.

    That is just it. The Android community is looking down a little on tether users that don't pay because it is bringing attention to all us root users. I say let's walk high and drop the data theft for now. At least that is the choice I make going forward. If we get locked out hard, I don't want to feel like a cause. Imagine we as a community walk upright and pay our way? There would sure be less concern to lock us down.

    I use wireless teather for root on a stock rom and it works just fine... Nice for when the power goes out.

    its all a lie this all started by a dev that was charging people for this. and now his under investigation

    if they really wanna stop this all they have to do is remove the app from the market

    You know that's going to stop nothing. Any apk can be found on a file sharing site within 30 seconds. And Verizon doesn't own the marketplace.

    If people don't abuse tether then vzw will continue to turn a blind eye. Sadly that won't happen since there are people puling super data numbersmy tethering their ps3, laptop, Netflix, and all their friend's devices.

    I don't use tethering for connecting multiple computers all the time, just occasional and mostly for emergency use, so it won't kill my phone battery that much.

    I hate to bring cable for tethering and it's very quick just to do it on WiFi. On..off.. done.
