    My name is Dan
    live in Massachusets
    I have a rooted samsung fascinate, my next phone is most likely going to be the galaxy s2
    I'm better that most people i see with androids, but then again if your rooted you probably already know more that 80% of android users.
    I'm pretty good with computers.I dual boot win7 and ubuntu, linux, so i can use both of them to and extent.

    To the best of my knowledge its not a matter of leagal or not. The carrier wants to limit the amount of data you use, even though you are on an unlimited plan so far I have not gotten into trouble persay but at one point in time my speed was horrible and I called and was told that they cut my speed because I exceeded their limit, I was told that the data is unlimited but they have control over the speed. I think at the time the limit was 5 gigs per billing cycle. Perhaps someone else has a better idea for you. Btw welcome.

    Loustsoul is right on track with his explanation. It is illegal in the sense of breach of contract because you have not purchased the use of their tether. The argument comes in that we bought unlimited data...how we use that is up to us.

    If they caught you...that is a huge IF...I think you could argue they only charge you the 9.99 tether charge.

    Could always clear your mind and just buy the tether option through verizon. Then you will not have to worry about it and a good night sleep is very valuable.
