Tethering "under the wire"

Does anyone now if there is a way to tether the Palm Pre Plus without Verizon aware of it? If we already pay $30 additional for data I don't want to pay an $30 more for the "privelege" of tethering to my laptop.

Thanks in advance.

Here is your answer:

Just confirmed this through Verizon's "Chat Live". This should be enough for most people if you won't be doing alot of websurfing.

Please wait for a Verizon Wireless sales representative to assist you with your order. Thank you for your patience!

Jeremy: Hello. Thank you for visiting our chat service. May I help you with your order today?
You: Hello Jeremy. I have one quick question. I read on the Palm Blog that on the Palm Pre Plus Verizon is currently offering free mobile hotspot usage for the first 5 GBs of usage. Is this correct?
Jeremy: Correct.
You: This is a great offer. Thank you.
Jeremy: Thank you for visiting Verizon Wireless, I look forward to speaking with you again. Have a great day!

Re: Tethering "under the wire"

It is indeed true. I bought one to use as a MiFi device (and a second phone for backup) and Verizon told me that it worked as a MiFi for no additional charge ($20 less than using a MiFi alone, if the phone is added to a family plan!)

I will still use my Touch Pro 2 as my primary phone.

Thanks!

Re: Tethering "under the wire"

that may be a true statement... because when buying my PPP yesterday there was a $0 checkbox for "mobile hotspot" or whatever and i'm on a family share plan.
