Combo of MyWi and tetherme
No email or text message.
Most of it is from AppStore updates as I have 7.5gbs of apps on my phone.

Just wondering if anyone on a business account got this as well. There are a few hundred of us in our company using an iphone and everybody gets the same plan.

Why do people post things without researching about them first or at least having a better understanding of what they are saying is beyond me but I have corrected enough people for the day. I am going to bed!

@iphone925 & others -
if an AT&T rep tells you that using Youtube or DishSling is tethering this is clearly wrong - but also potentially even more worrying:
EITHER that rep's clueless & taking [email protected] OR AT&T has a new definition of 'tethering' that includes using native and App Store apps.
that would be bad.

It's a fishing expedition. Their casting out their line to people that use a large amount of data relative to the average and assuming they tether, saying they're going to switch their acct automatically so they can without legal issues. Nice play AT&T, but the people that use that much data know they are and know what they're doing. Jlamador2 has it right above. Don't stand for it!

I'm curious. Anyone on a 2GB plan + uses MyWi get the text msg warning?
My guess is no.

To shed some more light on to this here is something interesting I just found from Google
AT&T Cracking Down on Unofficial iPhone Tethering & MyWi Users
This user basically is saying
"Based on my conversation with a rep, she said she’s received calls all day on these messages. They were targeted towards higher data users. My wife doesn’t tether and uses a lot of data with netflix, pandora, etc. I do tether and use a fraction of what she does and we both got dinged."

wonder if bluetooth tether is being caught? has anyone got the email after bluetooth tethering
03-18-2011, 07:39 AM #212
Is there anywhere can we read this contract that "grandfathered" us into an "unlimited" plan?
I'm curious to see what the fine print says.

all they can do is track your usage and sniff your users-agent use socks 5 to be safe...

I wonder if this will happen if you use PDANet too?

They must have changed their definition of tethering. The list given to me was: tethering to a computer or any other devices such as laptop, home computer, hand held devices, letting friends use your data from other devices, streaming tv, streaming music, downloading videos and/or music, or any other large files. Thing is, apple doesn't have 3G restricters set on a lot of apps like YouTube, downloads, Netflix, and so on and so forth. So, really who's to blame? Not the user. It would be apple, but they aren't going to go after a big giant that would cost them a fortune to do so. They are going to go after us, tethering or not, unless you are on their other pocket stealing plans.

I don't claim to know it all and stand to be corrected. Since you know it all, you explain to me the technology out there by any carrier and how it is technically capable of detecting tethering by an individual user. If it was possible I would think this would have surfaced a lot earlier. The only logical assumption by AT&T why a user is using 10-20 GB of data a month compared to average users are WAY less=tethering. My thought of reason (if you haven't read some posts) that people have gotten email/text and haven't tethered, but because of excessive data usage from Netflix, pandora, etc. You're right can't say for 100% but a little differential reasoning. And just because you read it on a post or two on here OR google doesn't make it true or correct.
