Its a risk.
With AT&T they have been detecting customers unofficially tethering with all different hacks used including MyWi, TetherMe and many others.
I didnt hear anything for other carriers but use at your own risk.
If you abuse it, they could notice.

The 3Gunrestrictor has nothing to do with it.
Since you have a specific amount of data package per month there is no way to mask that with 3G unrestrictor or anything and use unlimited data for example. As soon as you use any carrier data they will know and their billing system measures it and bills you accordingly.
Find out and learn what 3Gunrestrictor does first.

All 3GU does is make apps think they're on Wifi so you can use its functions. For instance, using it on native YouTube.app gives you higher quality video. Using it in Phone.app allows you to FaceTime over 3G.
