    I do not live in the U.S., but I have not heard anything about a fix for AT&T tethering. However, the only thing they do is send you a text message telling you that you should switch to their tetering options for the iPhone. I know it sucks, but what can you do? For now, I am saying no. :)

    Yes, just don't tether.

    What did you expect?

    It's 2011... AT&T has computer systems and software which can easily detect nefarious activities.

    Don't believe it... just try.... You'll be thrilled at the tariff ~

    Its 2011, AT&T can detect nefarious activity, but Apple cannot detect nefarious activity individually, but can detect it on a global scale.... It is quite a shame, but then again, nefarious activity through phone numbers would be easier to track than with (a) single device(s)...

    I did(TetherMe), got caught. Email, Text and Snail Mail. I played dumb on on the phone with them. The woman said she could keep it from changing to a tethering plan but, if it detected tethering any time after the date we talked that it would switch automatically. I never once went over 2gig total. The Tethering I did was very limited to say the least. Maybe 20 minutes total over couple of months. I rarely ever used it for anything else other than showing someone it worked.


    The woman did mention on the phone that sometime in the last year I had used some sort of tethering. I don't know if that helps, or even means anything. Just adding all the info I can

    oh and i believe if u want to tether, u have to pay extra $20 for their plan cause they have a strong way to detect (basically auto detect) then ur in trouble and get ur warranty voided

    Why the hasty hostility? You're searching the iPhone hacks forum, you can't be all that gainer modifying phones. Don't need to go into passive-attack mode. I was just wondering if anyone had any luck with TetherMe or MyWi without receiving AT&T warnings.

    there is no said policy on jailbreaking at verizon or AT&T now if they catch you tethering then just like AT&T they can impose fee's. you talking about different things that confuse people. you might want to know that us courts have told Apple they can not make jailbreaking illegal however Apple can choose to void warranty's. this is all in the sticky's uptop and this is just confusing the original post.
