The FCC ruled they cannot charge you for tethering.

And if you look at their new share everything plans, it states it includes tethering but I thing it would be reasonable to assume the FCC ruling applied to those of us grandfathered into unlimited data.

I work for Verizon and love this site, this APP and this Phone lookup site as well.
Love my Razr, yes I am rooted, I have about 25 gig a month on my unlimited plan and no one has ever said anything about it. 🙂

The agreement may save some Verizon Wireless subscribers $20 a month. But figuring out who exactly benefits isn’t so straightforward. So we’ve put together this FAQ to help you understand what it means.
What did the FCC settle with Verizon Wireless?
On Tuesday the FCC and Verizon announced that they had agreed to settle a 10-month long investigation into Verizon’s management of the 700 MHz wireless spectrum the carrier is using to build its 4G LTE network. The so-called open access rules state that licensees offering service on C Block of 700 MHz spectrum “shall not deny, limit, or restrict the ability of their customers to use the devices and applications of their choice on the licensee’s C Block network.”
The FCC found Verizon had pressured Google to remove 11 apps from its app stores that allowed customers to use their smartphones to create mobile Wi-Fi hotspots for other devices.
Under the terms of its settlement with the FCC, Verizon will make a voluntary $1.25 million payment to the U.S. Treasury. The carrier has also notified Google that it no longer objects to the tethering apps. And the carrier also said that it will no longer charge customers using third party apps an additional fee for using their smartphones as wireless modems.

I have a Nexus 7 and a Samsung phone using Foxfi. The Nexus 7 saw the Foxfi WiFi and the N7 was able to connect to my Samsung phone successfully, thus, allowing internet access. Whoever developed this app is darn good and I know this person or company has/have a lot of talent.
