    I read an article that Verizon has to allow 3rd party tethering. I know currently this won't have an effect on me, as I also have a BB phone, but this surely sounds like a bonus for those buying such things as they nexus 7 and who already own a Droid. My problem would still be battery life, as I can bridge all day, and when I had a Droid, wifi ate up battery pretty quick.

    I heard that they lost a lawsuit and this is the outcome.

    That's what I read. Didn't remember the link to the news story.

    I spoke with Verizon yesterday and they will still charge separately on an additional plan for the tethering.

    Found it for reference's sake: Verizon Can No Longer Charge For Tethering, FCC Declares | TechCrunch

    Appears to only apply to non-unlimited plans. So I'm out of luck... Verizon hasn't caught me yet though. FoxFi ftw.

    And why only 2gig and 4gig customers. I pay for UNlimited. Why can't I use it as I choose?

    I guess "your" data's yours as long as there's a cap on it?
