    2 quick questions..

    I use MyWi currently for usb tethering, once AT&T rolls out their tethering plan, will we still be able to use MyWi without AT&T knowing?

    Also, why do I need to reset my network settings all the time for my maps app to locate me correctly?

    thanks!

    I don't see why it wouldn't. AT&T can tell right now that you are tethering, they just haven't chosen to do anything about it.

    I'm sure it will, but I can see AT&T getting more aggressive about enforcement. Right now there is no tethering option so you could argue it's not costing them much if you use it responsibly. However if you use MyWi instead of the tethering option you could be accused of trying to get out of paying and therefore stealing $20/month.

    they can tell even with mywi? I thought they could only tell using native tethering hacks.

    I'm also curious as to how you think they can tell? Data is data, no?

    I love being able to keep my iPhone in my pocket and use the bigger screen of my iPad to look something up or show my friends a picture/something on the internet. It's quick, functional, and harmless; and if AT&T takes this away from me I'm going to flip out.
