Re: [PLUG] something nice

Cool.  I'm surprised it worked without VZ adding a tethering or hotspot "plan" (option?) first but I know on Sprint some years ago, it work exactly that easily for me too.

Subject: [PLUG] something nice

My parents said that if you don't have anything nice to say, say 
nothing.  This explains why I didn't speak until age 18. Now I make it a 
policy to say something nice at least once a year; this is that saying.

Everybody's best friend, Comcast, is causing me no end of grief. After 
some bizarre performance issues (decent UL speeds, no DL speed), they 
blamed it on my ancient modem (docsis 2 instead of 3). While the wife is 
out getting a new one, I am left with no internet (HORROR!).

Checking the Verizon S3 phone, I noticed a hotspot option. I turned it 
on, the laptop found it, then refused to connect.  Then I plugged the 
phone into the laptop, hit Tethering, and POOF - it just connected and 
Just Works.

Bravo linux and android (and Verizon?).
