    I am running cyanogenmod 7.2 (and as a side note..you should all be running cyanogenmod 7.2 )

    My understanding is that with the recent Verizon ruling that ATT has softened on tethering, making it part of the new data plans.

    Can grandfathered users on "unlimited"(*) plans also tether now, or will this be yet another lever to pop grandfathered users off the unlimited plans?

    Thanks in advance....

    The new shared data plans allow for tethering, I think that's what they are talking about.

    It will allow for tethering. But only on the new plans. Not on current plans or grandfathered plans.

    Meaning my 2 year contract that I signed 3 months ago will not allow me to have free tethering with my 3gigs of data?

    Thats pretty lame. Oh well!

    You can always change the plan without voiding your contract.

    A rep told me I can change to the new plan without my contract renewing. That true?

    At&t has always allowed you to swap between plans without any penalties.

    Is AT&T still aggressively going after unpaid tethers? I know of several who were kicked off last year for tethering on their unlimited plans. Got a letter from AT&T saying that since they wanted to tether they were now switched to a tiered plan with tethering, since they were in violation of the terms of their unlimited agreement.

    Yes you can change plans. Another thing to check is if you get a work discount? The account has to be in the workers name mins you. If you don't have one setup it doesn't hurt to check.
