    Hello, I'm planning to move from my current Galaxy Nexus to an HTC 8x. For grandfathered Verizon people..can you USB tether or Bluetooth tether with your 8x?

    I know hotspot isn't available for non share plans already but couldn't get a confirmation on USB tether or Bluetooth tether(which I typically am able to do with the Androids for free).

    You can tether all you want, but you cannot use your phone as an internet connection. You'd have to pay $20/mo to enable the hotspot functionality on the unlimited Verizon plan in order to use the phone as a hotspot. In other words, hotspot is AVAILABLE on the unlimited plan, its just not free. And don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure the hotspot would have a data cap.
