Thanks for the input. When I first got the iPhone I did not think I would have any reason to tether. Soon after, however, I fell in love with iOS. One thing lead to another and now I have a beautiful iPad 2 WiFi. I'm so proud. XD I doubt it would happen often, but I can foresee the need to tether for the iPad from time to time. Not nearly enough to justify what VZW wants.
That brings up a whole other issue. How much would you be willing to pay for a prepaid tether pass? I could see where carriers could setup a system that would allow customers, like me, to tether for a preset period of time. $2 for 1 day up to 100MB. $5 for 1 day up to 500MB. $10 for 1 week, up to 2GB. Would anyone else be more willing to pay the carrier for tethering like this?
