Thread: AT&T Teeter Totters on Tethering

I know people on hard times, I know how thrifty they are, I know they don't give a damn about your Tivo, they wanna eat and keep the kids online learning their homework. I'm fortunate enough to not have the problem, but to have the insight. These people WILL cut their cable off for tethering.

Tethering is still a $30 add-on, you can get Cable (initially most providers give discounts giving you a substantial first year savings) or DSL for that price.. you're over analyzing it. I was simply giving an EXAMPLE of what can't be used through tethering for the iPhone and there are many more examples. $30 for crippled internet access is no value or reason to switch from hard lined internet. You can also get iPhone data off of your plan if you must, just need an IMEI of a dumbphone. = $30 savings with HS access still intact at home
Chances are if anyone is struggling to feed their kids, the iPhones are being sold and the account is going into collections and they're managing with a Cricket or MetroPCS phone.
Even more savings!

Apple should enable tethering at large and leave to individual sevice providers to make the service available... For us that have iPhones outside US and have good service providers (F.U. AT&T!) we should be able to have tethering working for us... WTF Apple!?!?!? Have you become Micorosoft?!?!?...

Who said every carrier isn't about the money? AT&T has always been about how cheaply we can run our network - Especially back when I had them and a cheap LG flip phone, which is NOT ok.
