As said above that is really excessive so most likely it's not more of a They found out but more of a Using Way to much data and so they cut off your data.. Now as how they found out.. Most likely they assumed that its basically impossible to use that much data on a Phone no matter how hard you try.. But most likely it's labeled "illegal tethering" For the fact that if you have unlimited data then they have no real reason to cancel your contract other than for illegal tethering if you don't have tethering on your contract.

If I can figure out from your few posts here that your real name is EDITED TO PROTECT PRIVACY and you're from EDITED AGAIN TO PROTECT PRIVACY, I don't see why sprint couldn't figure out that you're tethering. Thing is, I tether too, but I keep my usage below 5 Gigs a month, so no red flags are never raised, hence no investigations.

MOD EDIT: PLEASE DO NOT REVEAL PERSONAL INFO, amd even less if it not yours

And what does any of that **** have to do with if they can see me tethering or not. Ain't like I'm posting **** on Facebook....hey I'm tethering on my evo illegally. Like dude said above I think it's just the data issue but they can't say that, because I have unlimited data.

Unlimited Data is not "Unlimited Everything"

According to your Sprint terms and conditions, you have unlimited email, pictures, internet surfing and messaging, as well as NON-CONTINUOUS streaming of videos, downloading, and online gaming.

LMAO I know.

To Tell the truth it's illegal and I did it, not much I can say or am going to say. My girlfriend is a lawyer and asked if I wanted to go that route. No because I feel stupid trying to fight something I did although I get free legal service it seems like a waste of time.

Am I pissed I got no more free internet....hell yeah LOL what do you think. I'm not rich but not hurting for money either, so in hind sight it seems not worth it lol. I guess with Hulu wither I paid for the hotspot service or not it wouldn't have made much of a difference. Tommorrow I'm getting 4g unlimited internet from clear which is probably what I should have done in the first place.
