C’mon, guys . . .
Yeah, the wording of their agreement gives the “the right” to terminate you at any time. But what they’re really trying to do is stop you from running a server using your PDA or wireless card as a pass-through. Kinda like your ISP limiting your bandwidth.
I have this plan. I use it for all kinds of things, all over the US and Europe (where believe me, it saves me BIG bucks). I use it to Skype, even, meaning I get free phone calls through my cell carrier, without using their minutes. And I’ve asked quite a few people at VZW about the limits and all but one (and he seemed pretty darned uninformed across the board) told me the same thing: they aren’t watching what you do w/ the plan. Just the volume of data you push.
Oh and by the way (shameless plug alert):
