I figured this would've happened eventually, but damn...


I guess I've been transferred to a DataPro 4GB plan, which I guess I could live with... I usually use over 12GB per month, but I can use Wi-Fi instead of 3G.

Been tethering via TetherMe and PdaNet for a long time. Never tried the hiding feature of PdaNet because it would often take me to mobile versions of websites, even on my laptop in Chrome.

I advise other jailbreak tethering users to maybe think of a backup plan.

Don't get me wrong, but unless you have a rather slow wifi connection at home, why would you prefer to use a slower 3G connection?
Just asking.
Exactly. That confuses the crap out of me why people say they only use 3G and hate wifi. Also I wonder if ATT can see if your teathering using MyWi or Pdanet?

You might want to reevaluate your philosophy.

How come?

Unless you're using a hiding method, it's using the APN that's used for tethering, so yes, they can see it.

What's your average data usage a month?
12GB/mo. I usually use my iPhone when I'm out, so I do a lot of video streaming (especially via my Slingbox). Don't use it much when I'm at home, so I don't go to Wi-Fi very much (unless I'm doing some jailbreak testing and need to restore my phone and need to quickly install something). Don't care when I'm out, as my iPhone's connection is plenty fine for that).

I've heard of people using over 60 GIGs a month and they haven't received anything from AT&T. I have no clue how they determine who uses too much data, 60 seems more than 12 lol unless math is an opinion.

60 is greater than 12 except for very large values of 12.
