"TECHNICALLY", tethering is not allowed in any form with your AT&T data plan. Will they know about it? Probably not. Will they charge you extra? Probably not. That is, of course, you go data crazy with insane transfers using it which might raise a red flag.

Yeah, you have to remember to keep an eye on your data charges. If you're tethering you can use up your data very fast.
Luckily, I came over from an older iPhone account and still have the unlimited data "grandfathered" in. I'm so glad I didn't decide to reduce my bill slightly by changing to the 200MB or 2GB plan.

Definitely keep an eye on it. AT&T is now charging iPhone users $20 for the privilege of tethering. And Verizon, when they detect it on their network, they either redirect you to a portal site and prompt you to add a tethering option to your plan or surprise you with a nice fat bill.
With T-Mobile, it's free.

Could someone give instructions for how to set up the Bluetooth DUN?
I have the n1 on ATT and am using a MacBook.

Yes the hotspot feature is amazingly well done. Setting it up is drop dead simple. And It didn't seem to kill the battery that much at all.
Its great for those things you don't want to do on the phone, like sending attachments that are on your computer.
You get two choices: Open or wpa2. No half baked wep or wpa.
Its a full Infrastructure router with dhcp server, dns server, so everything works as if it was a linksys or netgear. Slicker than snot on a gold tooth.
