MyWi tethering app. Will AT&T charge you?
phone: iphone 3gs black 3.1.2 jailbroken by Blackra!n.
I have just installed MyWi to my iphone, i have not yet tried it. I am afraid i started using it that i would get charged by at&t for tethering.... will this happen?
Please let me know if I will get charged if I begin tethering by using MyWi.

Dunno for sure though. It'd probably be worth the fight in my book. Might have to re-read my contract carefully.

I didn't want to start a whole new thread, so I'll add it in here. I had PDAnet on my phone, but had never used it. I find the concept of MyWi to be far more useful, so I downloaded that and installed it. It creates a network just fine that I can connect to, but shows up as a local network only. (no internet). I read that PDAnet must be uninstalled for it to work due to some DHCP issues, so I went ahead and unistalled PDAnet, but still no luck. Does the phone have to be fully reset after doing that (hold home and power, re-jailbreak etc.?) for the settings to be reset to something that allows it to create a regular network, and not just a local one? Has anyone else had this issue when using MyWi?

they use to offer tethering if I remember and read correctly? but realized that they couldnt actually handle THAT much data over their ****e 3g networks.. so they turned the feature off... is that right? someone please clarify this if im wrong.

I've used MyWi for months and months now. I never get AT&T grief, never been charged or anything. I average between 1.5GB and 2.5GB of data use per month. (I am on the road alot, lots of Sirius XM/Pandora/Slingbox). I tether a hell of a lot to, but only for browsing, email, and basic internet stuff on my laptop. I love MyWi because you can just make it a hot spot and have multiple connection allowed, thats the best part. Use it and dont be scared. Free tethering, FTW

Anyone with any input regarding the tethering issue I'm having with MyWi? Only showing as a local network. I have checked to be sure that tethering is on in the settings, I have reset network settings (and the phone) after PDAnet was uninstalled, and still no luck.

FYI - There 3-5 big jailbreak tethering apps that are huge in the jailbreak world for 2 years or so now. People aren't being charged by at&t for tethering. I've been using MyWi for a long time now, never had a warning or a charge or anything from at&t but I'm not trying to use 5 GB's in a week either.
