Verizon to block using the Treo 700w as a modem?

I first mentioned the utility PDAnet a few weeks ago as a great way to use the Palm Treo 700w as an EVDO modem for your laptop or Tablet PC. The $30 utility enables Dial-up Networking (DUN) on the 700w getting around the Verizon practice of disabling it on high-speed devices they offer. Whatever Comes to Mind is reporting that a Verizon representative told them that Verizon would soon have a "fix" rendering PDAnet useless on the Treo. I would not be surprised if this becomes a reality since Verizon has stated they were going to offer modem tethering as a $15/ month service. Too bad for consumers.
