    I say it's none of their business what we do with our phones.

    I don't think that it should be their business as long as we don't do anything illegal on our phones but when we tether it's stealing from them (no matter how convenient it might be) and as a company they have a duty to stop theft from their company. I agree that it sucks, but it's also a very good move from their point of view.

    As long as they only go after tetherers and not all rooted users.

    I definitly agree with that, I don't like that all have to suffer because a few are abusing root.

    Because it's easier to punish everyone than to single out the guilty.

    Definitely, I really don't like that they do that but you have to admit that from their perspective it is the easiest and most cost effective option.

    Hopefully, it doesn't come to that. If it does, I will pay the ETF and switch back to VMUSA, as they have two Androids now.

    I don't consider using Data we're already paying for, on a larger monitor~ as stealing. How we use that data is none of their concern. I paid for it. Why should I pay extra for a keyboard/monitor? That's basically what tethering is. If they're concerned about people pulling too much data, then go ahead and cap it. That's THEIR choice~ but don't charge me MORE for data I'm ALREADY paying for. You can't add words like stealing here to the moral ethic, you're being charged more money for using the SAME data being put through your phone (which it already does~) and connecting it to another device. You're not even telling your phone to do anything more than what it normally does.

    People can cite the agreements and other things they tack onto their service to steal from the customer~ but it doesn't change charging for tethering to be a logically abhorrent practice.

    Does tethering use more data than just using the Net on the phone itself?

    No, it doesn't. It obviously depends on your usage. If you torrent a bunch of movies over your phone, then yeah~ I'd say so. Though this is debatable, seeing as how people are streaming HD Netflix movies on their iPhone's right now.

    It uses the same amount as long as you're loading the full pages. However, people who tether usually use more data than people who don't.
