Basic phone - Verizon Tethering?


Jul 18, 2009, 5:52 AM
What would be the right phone to use for Verizon tethering? Is this what they refer to as "Mobile Broadband Capable?

I need to tether this summer.

Was looking at the LG VX-8360, it was not listed as "Mobile Broadband Capable".

Any other recommended phones? Need basic and small.

You can tether the lg 8360. All you have to do is download the vzaccess manager to your computer at this link: »

At that same link, you can click on "supported devices" on the left and it shows you the complete list of devices you can use.

Pricing recently changed, if you are on a Nationwide basic/select plan its $49.99 but if your on a Nationwide connect/premium plan, its only $30 a month.

just that the price of data went that high.

Using a data card is $60 a month. You are getting the same service for $50 a month since you already have a plan.
