What do you will happen with tethering when the iPhone 4 jailbreak comes out?

    EDIT: title should read, "What do you THINK will happen...". Sorry.

    With the iPad wifi, I finally have a reason to use tethering. I haven't done it yet because I personally don't want to jailbreak. I would rather be legit.

    But we all know that the new data plans are arse-backwards, you have to give up unlimited data to tether, which is of course a situation where you're going to use more data.

    In the past, everyone had unlimited data, and even tho jailbreaking and tethering weren't supported, at least no one was technically not breaking any data rules. But now, the situation is different. So, if we tether with the jailbreak method and keep the unlimited plan, do you think there will be issues?

    He's not asking about Jailbreaking. He's asking about breaking his contract with AT&T (or whoever).

    The answer is that they don't seem to be cracking down on stuff like this so it'll probably be fine. But no one can predict the future.

    It will probably be fine. If worst comes to worst they will charge you some fee for tethering.

    Exactly. I wouldn't have a problem with jailbreaking in and and of itself. But tethering with unlimited data is basically stealing at that point, now that the plans have changed. In that sense, I won't do it, but it is still sort of a grey area.
