    So I want to jailbreak my phone, mainly for tethering to my macbook. But won't AT&T know I've jailbroken my phone due to high data usage?

    Uh, high volumes of data could tip off that you are using a different style of usage, but is unlikely. You wouldn't be the first one and I don't see AT&T pursuing anything.

    My data usage has no pattern at all. Some cycles it's less the 1Gb, some times it's over 10Gb. I don't tether and AT&T has never sent a notice or anything other then the regular billing sheet.

    you cant give false info
    tethering is risky and with apple knowing that jailbreak is now legal they will be advising all cell providers to watch for these activitys
    and high data usage all of a sudden is very risky indeed

    to say that they wont do anything is understatement

    dont be the first one to get caught because i think they will make an example out of anyone who does get caught

    i know of knowone so far who has been caught but thats not to say that they will never catch them

    use it at your own risk

    AT&T does not audit the accounts, not yet. I have tethering on my iPhone 3GS with the ANP hack which cause the internet usage to show as "wap.cingular" instead of "iphone". No warning notice from AT&T yet.

    Noone so far for over 3 years has got in trouble for tethering.
    It can happen if they decide to monitor it but I doubt it.

    I meant they haven't pursued anything, not that they wouldn't. To win a legal case...I'm wondering why they haven't. They obviously love all the money they can get. :rolleyes:

    Was this post created by a spambot? Nothing in it is true.
