    I read that Verizon will let you share your 3G connection on up to 5 Wifi devices.....for free?

    Also, don't forget to constantly tell yourself:

    Verizon 3G is slower than AT&T's.

    I tether on my Droid X every day.

    Free. :D

    Also, I use the same Droid X to tether my iPad 3G (with AT&T's service) because I almost always have a full 3G signal with Verizon while my iPad is slooowwwww. :(

    Speed < Signal stability IMO.

    To answer your question though, yes.

    Looks like it's a new feature for the iPhone4 and will be available on both CDMA and GMS versions.

    Is it legal or are you rooted (essentially jailbroken)?

    shh... you not supposed to bring up that dirty little secret.

    Android and iOS are far more similar then people are comfortable with.

    Appears as though it could be free. I haven't seen one way or another. Not sure where the $20 is coming from either.

    Think it is coming from current prices from Verizon on other smart phones. What is making it appear to be free?

    Were talking about verizon here.
    AT&T is the same way. Nothing is free.

    The only reason I'm thinking it's free is bc nowhere have I read about a fee associated with this "new feature." This exert is from the latest article on macrumors :

    One of the major new features offered with the Verizon iPhone 4 announced today is support for turning the device into a personal hotspot allowing up to five Wi-Fi devices to share the iPhone's cellular data connection. Personal hotspot support comes built directly into the operating system of the Verizon iPhone 4, which is running a new iOS 4.2.5.
