Does anyone know or heard of anyone getting busted by verizon for tetherig without paying for it? I just upgraded to a galaxy s3 and I tether to my nexus 7 via foxfi. I noticed that it uses up quite a bit of bandwidth as I use it at work to stream videos. I used about 22gb in 2 weeks with my phone and nexus combined. I didn't want to get busted so I signed up for their hotspot plan which I get for $24 due to my discount and its unlimited (thank god). But with their hotspot app my phone gets extremely hot and sucks the battery super fast while foxfi runs very cool and I noticed that I watched a episode and a half of breaking bad and it only went down from 87% down to like 82% that really impressed me. So I cancelled my hotspot plan and just use foxfi instead do you guys think verizon will come after me if I tether like around 10-20gb a month? I don't want to lose unlimited but I don't want to use their crappy hotspot app either. I could pay for the hotspot service and use foxfi anyways so they won't get me for not being subscribed to a hotspot plan but It seems pointless to pay them and not use their app when I can do it on my own for free. Any advice???
