    I lost my jailbreak and am stuck with 8.2. I just want to know if there is anyway to get free tethering on 8.2 and iPhone 6. I've searched and searched and can't find any solution. I can update to 8.3 if need be. I have the grandfathered unlimited plan so to get tethering from VZW its 30 bucks a month which is stupid. Thanks for any help.

    Only option is to plop down the 30.00 per month to Verizon (if you have a business discount, it could be a it less; for me its 23.69 a month, if I wanted to add it - since I get 21% off). I'll stick on 8.1.2 for as long as I can for that reason alone.

    Or in the extreme sell the iPhone and buy another with the correct iOS firmware required to jail break it -> well I did say it was extreme.

    for me I keep an android laying around (rooted) that i can just pop my sim from the iPhone into the HTC...tether... then when done I just pop sim out... not optimal but it gets the job done when i need to tether for several hours at a stretch.
    Hopefully the 8.3 or .4 jailbreak will be out soon.

    Any idea if you can take the SIM from the iphone and drop it into a mobile hotspot device so you can wifi tether a computer?

    I have to use tethering just to watch Amazon videos in HD because Comcast sucks. Netflix works well even in 4K because they paid Comcast; Amazon didn't. Hence the need for Net Neutrality

    Yup, with net neutrality like that, Netflix will simply join Amazon -- everyone will get their equal share, which will amount to being just barely enough to stream SD content. ;)
