    Coworker just Picked his up, I misread how the tethering works.... It's not unlimited tethering if you buy before May 15th, it's free tethering until then and $20 a month if you use it after that. No good to me.

    I'm thinking of waiting for the Droid Bionic instead. Any more news on that release?


    RE: the hotspot pricing, yeah, $20/month for 2GB of data. For those who want to use their data service for tablets, etc. only during certain months of the year for vacation, etc., this *might* work better than paying for the dedicated month-to-month service -- V charges $20/month for 1GB of dedicated data service (and $35/month for 2GB, etc.). Of course, you'd be running down the battery w/ that...

    If you want to tether without the additional data charges, just root the phone.

    Chickens are coming home to roost on those getting free tethering via rooting too tho. You guys could be in for a monster back bill!
