    So I got the dreaded "you are tethering" text/email. Has anyone who has gotten this been changed over to tethering after the 10 day period?

    I only used 2.1gb of data this month...

    no but wih 4g LTE speeds the companies are going to have to change the pricing plans. I'm easily tethering more than 1gb per day with my thunderbolt, getting 10-15 mbps down.

    What app did you use to tether, MyWi or TetherMe?

    I live in the Uk and have yet to come across a friend or colleague who tethers.

    Networks do offer this in certain tariffs but the option to buy a dongle which can be topped up when needed are dirt cheap here !

    I posted this earlier, but I dont think people understood what i was asking. I use mywi and have gotten the "we know you are tethering" text/email from AT&T. Has anybody who got this continued to use tethering and forced to switch to the tethering plan?

    There are a few long threads on this. Seems if you ignore it there's a good chance AT&T will simply start billing you for the service.
