    Let's one of us start a new thread on that topic, maybe the original info providers can repost pertinent info. I didn't follow every reply and didn't dream I might need to "save" the info, as I routinely go back months or even years to bring up info I might need.
    It's not my intention to get cross ways with the mods, but I don't see this info on the prohibited posts criteria, and just interested in that information, and that subject has been discussed since I was doing so on the original sprint vision drudge system.

    Yeah, me too, but very small amount of data, and on a spare line that has never ran over the 2.0,2.5,3.0,4.0 and now 5 gb provided.

    I believe the original information came from Reddit. So it should still be available there.

    The Cricket tethering thread and the Metro free Amazon Prime link disappearing is very weird...

    I am on the basic 5 gb plan and tethered earlier this week with my Galaxy S5 native wifi tethering setting. Probably uploaded a 200 MB of data, but not much downloading. I have not received any warning or texts from Cricket. I've only seen warnings go to Unlimited plan users. I haven't seen any basic plan users report the warning.

    I have to wonder if this eventually becomes a selling point for providers and MVNOs.

    If everything is going unlimited and if prices can't get any lower, then providers will have to look at other service extensions to entice new customers.

    If you can get unlimited talk/text/data from provider A for $X and unlimited talk/text/data from provider B for the same $X - what is going to distinguish the two? If provider A allows tethering for a certain number of GB and provider B does not - will everyone shift over to provider A?

    I do believe you have to put a limit on tethering or raise prices substantially, otherwise you'll have people thinking they can cancel their home Internet connection and just tether off of their phones. The tiered plans on Cricket would seem to already have a self-imposed limit (i.e. 5GB - regardless of how it is used). Although, I don't know what speeds you get after you use your 5GB (I've never used more than 5GB in a month) but I would think those speeds would make tethering unbearable.

    Don't worry. When they repeal net neutrality, you will get your wish. Corporations that provide internet access will benefit at your expense. You will even get to pay for the same data twice. Enjoy

    Been tethering on the Cricket 40 for the last few days using a Metro ZTE ZPro and I haven't gotten any crazy warnings.

    I'm still curious about this subject as the original thread had numerous warnings.

    Haven't read anymore either. Was that something that even happened?

    I think I'll tether a 10GB file tonight and see. If I get a message I'll post it. If I do then someone else needs to do the same using VPN and see if it changes anything.
