    You might want to check out PdaNet too. Apple has not accepted PdaNet into the App Store since it avoids your carrier's tether plan. You will need to jailbreak your iPhone and install it through Cydia.

    AT&T can tell if you are tethering using any of the 3 apps mentioned here.

    Once must be careful not to tether too much or AT&T will send them a nasty-gram.

    If I bought Mywi on demand for $24.95 do I have to buy Mywi?

    that sucks, i havent gotten any through tether me. I pretty much concluded i dont care if att takes away my unlimited. I mean they throttle me at 3gb, so if i get my unlimted away ill have 3gb tiered. Pretty much the same thing haha. I cant wait for sprint to activate LTE here, then im jumping ship.

    Have you considered Straight Talk (an AT&T MVNO) ?

    They have no tethering rules (that I know of)

    I stopped using MyWi, which worked great, after threatened to take away my unlimited data. I never tethered heavily, just to my iPad, never anything heavy
