without jailbreaking it, you aren't getting around their fee, and as far as I understand, on verizon, even if you do jailbreak it I don't think it matters, anything that connects through a tethering system and our servers kick you to a "buy the service or you're out of luck" page....
I don't know why the word jailbreak scares everyone. It doesn't change how your phone works at all. Only thing it does is allow your to do more with your phone then before.
That being said MiWi is good but there is an app called PDA net that works way better.
it doesn't scare everyone, just the people that don't like the risk of having to buy a replacement at full retail because you voided the warranty by jailbreaking the phone.
That isn't true. Jailbreaking doesn't void warranty it was made legal a couple years ago. Plus all you have to do is restore to factory default and the jailbreak is removed. I have sent 2 iphones and an ipod touch to apple for repair and all were jailbroken prior to being sent there, I just restored before I sent off. I currently have a iPhone 4s and it is jailbroken and I love all the extra things mine can do that others can't.
But to each his own.
