Sorry, but this seems like a very silly argument. The technology to tether the iPhone to another device did not exist when AT&T created the "Unlimited" data plan... again, for use with the iPhone itself, not something else. By your logic, music companies should have put a disclaimer on the back of LPs that said they are not allowed to be converted to mp3 for use on portable devices. How or why would an organization know to put in their terms of service something that didn't exist?!?! In fact, however, they anticipated the potential and indicated in the TOS that the use of data is for the device itself. It's shocking how many people in our society use arguments like "big bad AT&T makes so much money" or "why didn't they specifically say every and all possible restrictions to include not using MyWi". Not only does the TOS say it's not allowed, but it's clearly in violation of the spirit of the TOS. Disappointing how often people seem to be looking for loopholes to explain obviously self-motivated behavior rather than putting the same energy into doing what is right for the larger community or considering the impact on others. People breaking rules and pushing limits is part of what ultimately drives companies to make stricter rules and tighter limits... that and corporate greed

While I'm on a soapbox (someone get me off this thing )... as said previously, I'd bet my left butt cheek (or my right one for that matter) there won't be any easy "out" of the contract because you don't like the fact that you are being held to the rules that you signed a contract to follow. I may be wrong, though I don't think I am. But, good luck with that.
