    Check out this site, no monthly cost, but beware, even though you think you may be on an unlimited plan, if you teather too much you may get charged from your carrier

    Thanks for the heads up..If the plan says Unlimited Data how can it not be unlimited though?

    I just talked to a Verizon rep and he was trying to sell me the $15 a month tethering package.

    Is the $59.99 for the tetherberry software or for there service?

    TeatherBerry, VZ Caps at 5gb, unless your streaming video, you should be ok... You can PM sandyscandles here, I'm sure she'd give you the inside info on how it works.

    yeah, 5gb is what I heard too. But in regards to that I heard it is tough to exceed the limit.

    Just monitor your usage
