I would agree with those words whole heartedly, Verizon will surely find a way to increase their revenue not decrease it. Why do you think there is no EV-DO USB adapter to be found? Because you could then plug that into a desktop machine as well as your laptop and then you might cancel your Verizon DSL. I am sure they will not have benevolence in their hearts when figuring out the pricing for tethering. One other caveat, and I DO have a Verizon EV-Do account, make sure that you review the contract the rep cobbles together. None of the sales reps seem to understand Blackberries and it is a real mess to untangle when they input everything into the computer. I have already had one instance of this and it was a monumental headache to correct.
