I have read several threads on here about which is the best and each person recommends a different one. I know this is posted a lot but my question hasn't been answered that I found. Does anyone know if Mywi uses APN so it looks like a phone is using the data if Verizon ever checks? I've read where people with ATT got notifications that they will be billed for tethering but has Verizon done this? I have no problem paying $20 for Mywi I was just wondering if it has APN or is that even a big deal? Thanks!

Go to each app's forum and search. The answer is there. Or you can ask the developers directly. Or a search on this forums gives you a list of thread about this exact topic.

Edit: just googled and found this:

I have used them all and as long as I don't excessly using it I haven't gotten any email from AT&T.

I know for a fact that TetherMe has APN settings. And i believe that it will keep the phone apn settings when tethering.
