Thread: AT&T Cracking Down on MyWi Tethering?

    5gb

    Well to everyone who received the emails/txts: what is your data usage so far? Maybe it's triggered by overuse?

  3. #23
    I stream video through slingbox. My data has went up tremendously. Im sure i will get this message soon. They are trying call high data users bluff. Another way for AT&T to make money.

    Will I still be able to use mywi on 4.3 & 10.2 update and is there a new reboot I'm sick of rebooting my phone everytime my battery dies. This is really annoying.

    Really, you have a jailbroken 4.3? Not I..... Anyone that is running MyWi is going to be using 4.2.1 at this time, now do you get it?

    Stay on topic. This is not a 4.3 jailbreak debate thread.

    I bet it's the high usage that is triggering these messages. It also appears that they can't tell if you are actually tethering....this would be good if it's the case since you can just tell them you are using an app that uses a large amount of data. (netflix, pandora, etc) and they accept your answer.

    They always tell me they have no way of knowing what I'm using my data for when I called to complain why my data has spiked so high in a span of one day. I kept asking and every rep got all mad and kept saying we dont know what you use to draw this much data. Sooo they're clearly assuming you're tethering and not really *knowing*

    I don't think so, I barely use MyWi and my data usage increased from 2gb to almost 7gb in one month and I never received that message.

    They don't know because in that case is favorable for them because you need to pay for the excess, but in case that somebody use a lot of data and hes unlimited now is in favor of you because you are not paying.

    I'm thinking we need to find out what the usage is that triggers it... I think the most I've used in a month is 10gigs.... What is the usage from the ones getting this message from AT&T?

    4.3 firmware is out but a jailbreak for it is not. Therefore MyWi ON 4.3 cannot be what AT&T is tracking this by.

    I think 10GB and under is safe to assume will be ok. But anything above might not be, maybe 15 even. Unless anybody has gotten the message and used less or around that amount?

    Because many people I talked to today say they use 20+ and personally I max about 5.
