    it could be set to switch over to home wifi at home, and Xoom tether when not at home
    If I had wifi at work it might be an option, but I need constant service for work email. I can't fit the xoom in my uniform either :-D

    don't want it!
    fyi... since your unit is a 3g/4g/wifi and not wifi only, you will, unfortunately, have to wait until verizon approves the ota and rolls it out.
    last time it was an extremely long wait. your only other option would be to root and install a custom rom with jb.

    Only US Wifi-only is GED and gets updates automatically. I don't think a contracted bionic can be run without a data plan. Even unlocked smartphones need data plan. VZW has you by the neck....

    they can be run without a data plan if they have wifi capability, if they are tethered via mobile hotspot/bluetooth and they can be used for voice (voip) without a voice plan (google voice/grooveip), but getting out of a active contract is another story...

    all you have to do is remove the SIM...

    I bought a used 3g Xoom on ebay several months ago, I am wanting to tether it to my phone (no service on xoom).

    How can I do that? I have tried several times with bluetooth, but I just noticed that my xoom is saying "sharing this tablet's internet connection" which it does NOT have. I am stock on both my razr and my xoom.....

    Hello. Download apps from Google Play on the RAZR: PdaNet 3.5 (Bluetooth) or FoxFi (WIFI hotspot). They work great on my stock Bionic (Gingerbread) and don't require root.

    personally, i dunno if i would have canceled, i am month to month, and can just turn it off without being billed at any time, and then if there is a time i should ever need my mobile connection, i just turn it back on for the month. its good'to know its there if i need it, and i can reenable without activation charge/fees
    Hey rive,

    How did you go about getting the prepaid plan? I am thinking of getting a used Xoom off of ebay, but I don't know what to do after that. You say it $30? I saw plans for $20 for prepaid tablets. Are those plans just for 4G?
