Also, if we can enable tethering by adding the APN, what is the next step to tether? I was able to enable the wifi hotspot, but the above poster states that ATT can "find out" we are using tethering...is this true?

Word of warning!
I have been using the method described in the xda link. I just got hit with usage charges for data. I have an unlimited data plan and using the APN described in the link apparently is seen separately by ATT. I got a text message from ATT warning me that I had incurred over $20 of usage charges. Sure enough, when I logged on to my account I see data charges for "wap.cingular".
Knew it was too good to be true.
Sorry - false alarm. It turns out AT&T decided to delete my unlimited data plan and start to charge me by the MB. D'oh

I doubt it is because of the apn. If you check your settings ATT placed multiple APNs on the phone and two of them are wap.cingular
Do you have text messaging? Check to make sure they actually added the unlimited plan and you aren't on some limited plan.
I've been using the ATT US apn that they provided and have not been charged anything extra and it does show up as wap.cingular on my account for data usage.
I am not tethering though.

In our case, it's being filtered because our carrier is ATT. According to the above link, the developer specified this restriction. I find that very hard to believe. Sounds a lot more to me like ATT pulled some strings to prevent their users from getting the app to avoid being robbed by the stupid tethering plan.
