    That is great news! I wonder if sprint will follow suit? Especially with 4g launching all over the place. This is probably verizons way in competing with the everything plan. Although most savvy people have been able to tether for free for a long time now.

    I think this can be done on Sprint with an app, Sprint does not restrict this.
