    You can go through your Verizon PHONE, either USB cable or bluetooth and use the EvDO that way! I believe you can just get a data plan and use it like that. If you use EvDO on a non data plan you just get charged per minute or something.

    With some Verizon phones that offer an unlimited EVDO data plan, you can pay an extra $15 per month to allow tethering to share that EVDO with your MacBook.

    My Experience With HowardForums Is Paying Off Outside of It...

    Okay, I've seen many a topics on this. Verizon does let you tether your phone via USB and Bluetooth if you pay the $60 BroadBand Access Plan (if you already have a voice line). This includes Mobile Web, if you're into that. You can also do it illegally, but we're not going to take that route on MacRumors.

    The only option to do tethering legally is paying $60-80 per month. You cannot tether via EVDO and only expect to be using minutes. That is big NO-NO and you will be caught easily. Plus, most phones you need to hack in order to tether with EVDO. You can't even tether via 1xRTT speeds legally.

    Please don't do it illegally. People have been screwed over.
