Installed Android Wireless tethering application... it works great. My question is, has anyone had any issues with being billed for it from Verizon? (getting caught)

I currently have a Galaxy Nexus on Verizon with Unlimited data. My question is in regards to the WiFi tethering with the Nexus 4. On my GN I currently use Fattin WiFi Toggle to get around the Verizon Tethering Fee. I use between 10-50 GB a month in tethering. This is primarily for iPad tethering for wathcing Netflix and iPod tehering for music.
So ive been using pdanet to tether my GS3 to my laptop to use 4g since I currently dont have wifi right now. So far i havent had any problems with it, however I do have it set to hide tethering usage. The only problem with this is that hiding tether usage makes me unable to watch netflix on my laptop because it messes with the flash player or something.
First off, if it matters, I have the Verizon Galaxy Nexus.
I went from running DarkPA 2.54 (or there-abouts) and was tethering pretty much as my main internet. Laptop, Xbox, PS3, Vita, etc, that were all working just fine with little to no hiccups in performance.
Not my tip, but it's so cool I have to share it. A recent episode of HPR describes USB tethering on Android, which I've just tried and am using now to post this. My ongoing difficulties with wireless (Broadcom) resulted in me managing to disable wireless completely. USB tethering "solved" this though, as I can connect via my phone now.
Question... I have unlimited data and use foxfi... I noticed when I use it on this phone the Verizon Tethering icon shows up in my notification menu. Does this mean I'm now getting charged from Verizon?
I recently upgraded from an LG Optimus One phone to a Galaxy Nexus. On my Optimus One, USB tethering worked flawlessly. However, I flashed tons of different ROMs to find the ones that worked better than others. Some didn't work at all. Some were flaky.
I'm currently using AOSPA 4.2.2 PARANOIDANDROID 3.5 (May15) α5 with 3.0.75+-RUBIK-AK-r30 kernel. Wi-Fi tethering works perfectly.

I thought I'd be able to tether my phone with legal apps such as foxfi. I can't seem to use it, and a number of sources have told me that i still need to enable the wifi tethering service with verizon in order to get those apps to work. but that conflicts with the above link!
