Verizon to Start Cracking Down on Tethering
Verizon has offered a $20 per month tethering option for their data-capable phones for over a year, but most users have found ways around paying for this using their smart phones and various applications. Now, like AT&T started doing last year, Verizon will be cracking down on those using their phone for tethering and start sending out messages offering the $20 service.
Apparently Android users who just updated their phone to 2.3 are the initial target – possibly due to some scripting in their distinguishing content or exposing the application in use?
Either way, another ridiculous charge cell phone companies are trying to impose on users. $30 a month data isn’t enough – lets stick another $20 to use a function available on the phone already.
