Also my dad planned to use this as his everyday internet connection instead of getting home service. He basically just uses it to surf the web and an occasional video stream or music download. Do you think he will use up the 5gb in a month?
Tetherberry is aftermarket software, and the Verizon network does not see it as a tether connection, just a standard BlackBerry connection. The software is not authorized by Verizon, and could result in additional charges by Verizon at some point.

If he plans to use the connection to replace his home Internet, it is very possible that he could hit 5 GB. I HIGHLY recommend against replacing landline Internet.
