Mine isn't and they said no they only give it to people they send it to in the mail because AT&T has noted the area as a bad area. I have to stand in the window of the upstairs loft to make a phone call with one bar from my house. I asked how that's not a bad signal area. No answer on that.
    A friend of mine could not get a signal and they gave him one for free.

    I am guilty but not going down without a fight. I got a letter in the mail today regarding this matter. Says they will change my rate plan on the 16th. Hopefully i can weasle my way out of this one. If they do this I will certainly leave AT&T. I will miss my iPhone. But there are other good phones out there. Sad for them. They will actually be losing a valued customer and a few contracts. Not a big fan of control freak Nazis.

    Poor grammar, rude & sarcastic - you still want us to believe you don't work for AT&T???

    I wasn't saying nobody is tethering. I was saying that unless you work in AT&T's tethering-detection department, how could you know that most people receiving these messages are tethering?
    Apple estimates only a small percentage of iPhone owners jailbreak. If that's true, I bet most people being targeted are simply heavy data users.

    P.S. you are = you're. "your" is possessive.

    Come on AT&T - how stupid do you think we are? At least make these posts a bit more believable!

    I remember when Cingular went to GSM, I had to buy a new phone and get a new plan.... I am thinking that when 4G hits..... We might all lose our "unlimited" data....

    I'm not sure that making a change to a different type like to GSM is the same as one updating to a 4G device to use 4G. Kind of like the iPhone 2G to 3G when 3G network came out. But with the way AT&T is doing things who knows

    If AT&T truly had a strong Case they would never give in. Fact is they go to court they must prove something was stolen.
    We pay for the service
    We pay for the data
    Tethering fee is a double charge Junk fee and AT&T knows it.

    Some of us are brave enough to tell AT&T to shove it

    But as for the mods and site I would hope they would do something about people calling others thieves, just say. AT&T has the right to charge the fee blah blah but leave a poster out of it. There are two sides to a conflict each side believes they are right.
    I completely agree. If you think about it this way, you already pay to use the data. Wether it be on your phone or on your tethered ipad/laptop does it matter? You are still using the same data. You are paying AT&T to enable a function on your phone so you can tether the phone to something else. So if you find another way or pay someone else (as in MyWi) to enable that functionality and still use the data you are paying for does it matter? The data is still being used regardless.

    Now I am on an Unlimited data plan still and I only use about 1.6 Gb/month so even with tethering to a WiFi iPad or to a laptop, I still only use about the same amount of data. I don't use my phone for my primary connection. I use it when I visit my parents who do not have internet and want to tether my laptop to watch a TV show online or want to surf the forums. So we are not talking about a high demand or usage of tethering. I do not want to pay $20 extra/month just to have the ability to use it when my usage is extremely low. A one time payment of $20 for that ability is acceptable to me for my usage. Anything more than that is highway robbery.

    You mean, like a phone that is already "wired" for tethering capability? A capability that can be turned on with a software, "switch"?

    Technically the iPhone didn't come with the ability to tether with version 3.0.0 because the BenM.at mod that people did which signed a different carrier package, thus allowing tethering,
    No native tethering of any kind was available in the iphone before 3.0.0, not even with the BenM.at mod. This fact forces me to conclude that tethering capability was put there by Apple beginning with 3.0.0, to be turned on at the carrier's discretion. All the BenM.at mod did was to make the "settings>general>network>internet tethering" toggle that was made part of the 3.0.0 firmware, visible to users who applied the mod. Further, they also gave out the APN's required to configure the tethering. Same as tetherme does for those of us with 4.x.x. It's not an aftermarket app like mywi, it simply turns on the iphone's native tethering capability. if you look at the file size of tetherme, it's like 40k or so.
