Well, looks like I need to cancel the data on my phone and get a cheap mobile broadband device or get a cheap phone from someone else and else it only for data and wifi-tethering.

Or it might be worth just switching all together. I don't think this is something a lot of people know until they try to get it working with their AT&T or Gophone smartphone.

Yes you can tether with gophone - you have to have non ATT branded phone. I used tethering more than year, unfortunately my European market Android phone died and now i found that cannot tether with ATT phone. I had several calls to att and they told if i have non ATT phon i could tether... So the restriction is built in ATT version and i have to find solution how to flash my new ATT lumia 820 into unbranded ROM to regain tethering. Thats a wery unfair policy by ATT. So if you find a way to get rid of ATT software and make it unbranded then you could tether for free and there is nothing they can do...

This is not true. I bought my unlocked Nokia Lumia 920 in Kuwait and it is an unbranded phone (they don't have AT&T there). I've never owned any type of branded phone, and when I try to tether with my AT&T simcard it says that I need to call customer service to get this feature enabled.. I'm sure there are some models of unlocked phones that don't have this check built-in, but my factory unlocked Lumia 920 does. So, I would be careful about buying a factory unlocked phone under the assumption that it is going to allow tethering. It might and it might not.
