Verizon is really starting to like Wi-Fi. Tom let me know that they have just opened up the doors to all their mobile broadband card users for free Wi-Fi. Sadly it looks like BlackBerry users are left out in the cold on this one since they are targeting it at USB, Mi-Fi, and laptops with 3G built in.
Even if you have a Verizon tethering plan for your BlackBerry you still need VZaccess Manager 7.2+ which is not compatible with BlackBerry devices. Currently only version 7.1 and 7.0 are supported for BlackBerrys… Hopefully Verizon is moving towards AT&T’s stance of offering up free Wi-Fi to all customers with a data plan on their smartphone.
