Forced carrier tehering is a load of crap. It should be a handset software feature and not a carrier feature. If I enroll in a specific smartphone data plan... how ever I use that data shouldnt matter to the carrier, only if I go over my allocated amount.
If I use 2GB thorugh the phone, or use 2GB through my laptop using my phone as a modem... I'm still using 2GB of network data. One method isnt costing the carrier more than the other. Biggest rip-off out there.Samsung Galaxy-S 3Stock ROM 4.1.2

I had noticed that the original article had an update that said only for iphones...but doesn't mention droids..
"Update: AT&T reached out to us and, yes, this is pretty much all there is to the tale: the "small number of smartphone customers who use their devices for tethering but aren't on our required tethering plan," are being contacted to either cease and desist or prepare to start paying for the service. No word yet on how many customers have been contacted, but it does seem that they're all using iPhones."
Has anyone heard of anyone who has gotten a notice who is using a droid, but not having the teathering plan? I'm grandfathered in to unlimited..and while i don't have to have it all the time it would be handy once in a while in a pinch to be able to use.
