    Default Personal Hot Spot

    I have just come over from a Droid X that I had rooted, mainly for the purposes of using a free wifi tethering application. Sorry Verizon, I don't think I should have to pay an additional $20 / month for this feature.
    Question. Is there an app for a jail broken iPhone (Verizon) that will allow me to have free wifi tethering?

    Thanks,

    That's the program I use for tethering. Ditto on the recommendation.

    Its a superb app, and is much better than Barnacle or Wifi tethering were on my Droid X. I had no problems paying the $19.99 one time fee.

    TetherMe in cydia will enable stock tethering for free, including personal hotspot.

    I have to recommend MyWi as my #1 app for internet tethering.
    iPod Touch 2G - 4.2.1 - greenpois0n'd - untethered

    iPod Touch 4G - 5 - redsn0w'd - tethered

    iPad 1G - 5.0.1 - sn0wbreez'd - tethered

    I use PDA net as it was free in cydia and wasn't sure how much I would tether. Well so far I have tethered 14 gigs in the last week. I will have to tone it down a bit or AT&T will want to charge me for that even though I have unlimited data plan.
    Steve Jobs created iCloud so he would have somewhere to go when he died and still be with Apple.

    14GB??? I would consider that excessive, and AT&T might too. Just be careful, because tethering (unless you are paying for it) violates your T&C.

    Can Verizon detect if you use the hot spot feature? A friend of mine has the Droid Incredible and uses the hot spot feature and has never been charged.

    No. I do it on AT&T and all it shows up as is the same Internet/MEDianet like all other data always shows up as.

     iPhone 5S - 64GB Space Grey
     iPad Mini - 32GB Black
     Apple TV 2nd Gen
     MacBook Pro - 250GB Aluminum Unibody

    Has anyone gotten an email or some type of notification from AT&T that they use too much data?
    I just bought it and have racked up 130 mb since buying it a couple days ago.
