Let me cut right to the chase. I have a buddy who is with Verizon. If we rooted his phone to open up the mobil wifi hotspot, is he still going to wind up paying huge data fees? I have no problem rooting the phone but they still know how much data it is using, don't they?

He's a car salesman. He's out on the lot all day and has been running back to the office for every little thing you might have to look up online. He just wants to be able to call it up on his tablet and save the marathon to and from the office all day long. With Verizon, the data plan already starts at $20 a month and you get like 2 gigs a month for that. It goes up from there. He probably uses 2 gigs a day.

Any info would be appreciated. Links even more so.

yes you can root and get apps to avoid paying a tethering fee. but it still wotks against your data limit. tethering can use a lot of data

Yes, bdfull3r is right. Tethering can use an insane amout of data, so proceed carefully and hang on to your wallet :)

Is tethering even allowed ? I thought you were in breach of your contract

It can be included in the plan now... and because the data is not unlimited, they don't care how you use it.   In fact, to them, the faster you use it up tethering the quicker they can charge overages!!

Rooting would be a better option indeed.
