    I do not believe that they do. You can remove it with crackmem or crackutil.

    Neo, true...but if he is running a .191+ OS, those apps may brick the device.

    typically yes.. they almost always put the things that are free for 30 days on there if you want it or not... I dont care for that strategy but managers do. The salesman make most of their commissions on things that a monthly charge... ie- vzvpak, vznav, bbplans, and connect and what not. I think some of them over step the boundaries by adding things without your permission but hey... i know where they are coming from.

    I am not quite sure what you are asking.. on vzw a fammily plan 1400 min unlimited text is 119.99 for 2 lines 9.99 each add'l line, and then 29.99 for each blackberry on BIS or 44.99 for BES. I would need to know more about what you have or want to get you an accurate idea.

    Hi'ya ... If you want to use Mobile Broadband Connect with your laptop and a storm, is that just a month to month based service or do you need to commit to a contract?

    Does this tethering method have the same connection speed as opposed to a built-in wan card (dell 5720 card)? The day pass option is $15 for this method.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes it will be the same speeds as you built in aircard. And yes the tethering plan is month to month... Think of it as a feature addon like texting. You van add it for a month and take it off anytime with no fees. Hope this helps

    Probably not at least not anytime soon. Other carriers just don't have the network costs that vzw does.

    I would guess you would see that cost drop before its free. And beilive it or not tethering takes up about twice the bandwidth as the data od your phone. Sry to double post accidently posted last response

    Nope, no contract. It is just added on as a feature.

    Not true... removing the application will not remove the charge from the account. You can easily remove the application by going into options adv application!

    You need to remove the feature from the account by calling into customer care or going to verizonwireless.com and logging into myverizon then services then add remove features.

    [QUOTE=jnepsa;128136]Wirelessly posted

    It is my understanding that ATT also charges a tethering fee. It is also my understanding the T-Mobile doesn't support tethering on blackberrys for free although you can do it there is no support I MAY BE WRONG!!!

    The reason for the fee is to make the overall cost of the service to be the same as a wireless modem. For example a wireless modem costs 59.99 for 5GB if you have the 29.99 web+email then the tethering is $30 if you have the 44.99 then tethering is $15.00.

    Also if you are using a stand alone line (not family share) then you can get the Voice and Email or Voice Email+Messaging Plans... They will give you the corporate bes version at a discounted rate anywhere from $30-40 instead of $44.99 then you will be able to get the tethering for $15 saving you $5-15

    Also you may receive employee discounts off of voice and email plans you do not receive any discounts from wireless modem plans!

    that can be or not be true it depends on the employers agreement with vzw.. I know there are plenty of people that have aircards and still get a discount on it from work.

    Agreed 100%... You can check the ECPD/ELEU/CLEU to see what discount an employer will receive on what services. nice call.

    that is unlimited use as long as you are not going over the 5gb hard cap...which is very very very hard to do unless you are using a program like tetherberry
