AT&T Sends Email and Texts to "Unofficial" Tetherers [In Brief]

AT&T Sends Email and Texts to "Unofficial" Tetherers [In Brief]: "
AT&T has started sending email and text messages to users they believe are using unofficial tether methods on their iPhones, according to iPhone community ModMyi. Some folks who've received the messages, however, "don't tether at all; it looks like AT&T is targeting users who have high data usage. As it turns out, [tethering app] MyWi shows up as 0 tether bytes" on your device's data usage—which is to say, your iPhone isn't recording MyWi activity as tethering. (Never used MyWi? Here's how to set it up.) Any readers run into this yet? Sounds like messages just started going out yesterday, but if you get anything, let's hear about it—and whether or not you're actually using a tethering method without paying AT&T for the privilege—in the comments.

AT&T shames unauthorized phone tetherers, gives ultimatum

AT&T shames unauthorized phone tetherers, gives ultimatum: "




AT&T has begun cracking down on smartphone customers—particularly iPhone users—who have been secretly tethering their smartphones to their laptops without paying for a tethering plan. The company sent text messages to the offending users, followed up with an e-mail, that says they've been identified as taking advantage the feature without paying up. If those users continue to tether and don't make changes to their accounts, AT&T will automatically begin charging for the DataPro tethering plan from March 27. Those who quit tethering before then won't have to upgrade their accounts.



"Many AT&T customers use their smartphones as a broadband connection for other devices, like laptops, netbooks or other smartphones—a practice commonly known as tethering. Tethering can be an efficient way for our customers to enjoy the benefits of AT&T's mobile broadband network and use more than one device to stay in touch with important people and information," reads the beginning of AT&T's e-mail.
