Tethering with unlimited prepaid plan

Tethering with unlimited prepaid plan

The description for the $65 unlimited data prepaid plan says you cannot use your device as a hotspot, but it doesn't mention tethering.  Is tethering allowed or no?  I would like to be able to tether to my computer at home to use my phone's data and I could get rid of my horrible satellite internet.

Sorry, no tethering or hotspot on that plan.

Re: Tethering with unlimited prepaid plan

No wifi Hotspot, tethering, Bluetooth sharing, USB tethering or any other sort of sharing.  Sure you could try to get around those restrictions with a few tricks... but that's against your terms of service.  Which could cause you to loose service if caught.

Re: Tethering with unlimited prepaid plan

Imagine ATT&T telling you using your headphone jack was against the ToS unless you paid them more money. Double dipping for a feature build into the phone, and for what.. greed? All the plans are already throttled at a certain point, so the only reason is money.  Good thing the blocking of apps is [for the most part] is illegal. Which begs the question: Whats the difference between the Netflix app using 10gb and the <insert tethering app> using 10gb?
