You do not need an unlocked bootloader in order to install an after-market free tethering app and prevent Verizon from collecting any tethering fees.
True, but if you want to enable wireless hotspot without paying for it, you do have to hack your phone. I don't see what the big deal is. With tiered data pricing, only the grandfathered unlimited people will be able to get unlimited tethering without paying for it, and when family share data plans go into effect, the number of grandfathered unlimited plans will go away. Plus, Android phones aren't that hard to hack.
