    In theory they could look at the browser user agent in the request header for any HTTP stuff. They'd be able to see when Firefox is used. Of course it is possible to forge your host header so firefox looks like your iPhone version of Safari......

    I believe it has something to do with the ports used aswell, for example if u were to sign on to AIM, it would know you are not on the iphone cause the ports used are not normally used on the iphone, i believe you can get caught doing this pretty easy and i think it could get worse than just some outstanding fines, i believe they have the right to terminate your contract

    Yes they can & no you won't get crazy bills. More then likely they will disconnect your service after warning (sometimes they don't warn). I've seen WM users get caught using tethering w/out a proper tethering plan & they get caught in a matter of a month or two.

    Hmm. Will this only happen with a lot of tethering or even with the slightest amount.

    I just want to be able to tether at the coffee joint or at the airport.

    It works with first gen too. Just download 3proxy and run socks in the terminal.

    On a pc go to connect to, setup network, setup wireless ad hoc.

    Go to this network on the iphone. And make note of the ip.

    On pc go to firefox and setup up the proxy. Make sure to do the about:config dns part too.

    Then open a page up on the iphone and you should be set.

    AT&T can do nothing but cancel your service if you are caught tethering. You pay for unlimited data, this is one of the easiest ways to get out of an At&T contract, you just tether and use tons of data.

    @mattolson - very wrong. You pay for unlimited MOBILE data. Your terms of contract explicitly state you are NOT allowed to use this for actual browsing, meaning YOU, not AT&T, would be in breach of contract If you abused it.

    I'm gonna be moving to Ann Arbor in the summer and the apartment doesn't have internet. Is there any extra fees for tethering on AT&T or is it like Sprint? (My cousin has a blackberry on sprint and tethering is included)

    How long til AT&T puts a stop to this by dropping contracts and charging early termination fees due to people abusing this by running **** like BitTorrent over it? Pretty quickly I'm guessing. They can easily see that it's not traffic from the iPhone Safari, Mail, or AppStore stuff. Should be interesting to see the shitstorm.

    Guess you didn't read the contract that carefully.

    The terms of service says that there is a 5GB cap on "Unlimited" data plans. So much for "Unlimited"

    And they even go beyond that. Just like your ISP they can cut you off at any point they consider excessive and there's no set definition of excessive.

    AT&T can track and warn/fine users who abuse standard tethering methods. AT&T doesnt however have the ability to track tethering with this method. (socks proxy) The only way they would do anything regarding this method of tethering, is if you go way overboard with your data useage.

    Wrong. They can tell the difference between the tethered data via this method and other data.

    how would ATT know if the data be transmitted is going to a computer if it relays through the iphone first.

    Doesn't Unlimited data mean unlimited data anyways?

    disregard i didnt read the other posts.
