If you’re using jailbroken tethering on the iPhone..AT&T is coming to take you away

I’m a heavy tether user on my Sprint EVO 4G. I use pdaNET which allows free tethering (though an ingenious use of the development mode usb connection). But if you’re an AT&T iPhone user and you’ve got some naughty apps letting you tether without paying the additional service fees…watch out!

AT&T is ruining a lot of people’s days with a customer mailshot explaining that its “records show that you use [tethering] but are not subscribed to our tethering plan.” iOS, of course, will disable the built-in tethering facility if you do not have an appropriate carrier plan.
