I use Foxfi and I have never recieved a warning. But the amount of usage differs each month on when they throttle me back. sometimes 2gb sometimes 5gb. I give up. I just use it until it goes slow.

Kinda like when I went over board and used my phone to play Xbox live.:screwy: Bad bad move, next day text msg came. We're going to sign you up for a tethering plan if you continue tethering. so I stopped using it for awhile!!

So if we use it wisely, then I think they'll forget about us all together. Lol

That is my theory also. My post was more in regards to the post about visual voice mail and tethering as a trigger for the message.

What about connecting your phone to your car stereo and streaming Pandora..is this considered tethering? Did anyone ever ask this to them?

I can't imagine why you would be throttled.

Ok. Think you took what I wrote wrong. But what your saying to us is, you used 55 gigs of data and wasn't throttled:what:. But when your on hspa+ you get throttled. Kinda strange bro, don't c it, don't understand it either!

Exactly 55 gigs. Is that from tethering?? Because we have been on the topic of tethering for awhile now! Come on what are you doing to use that much?? Cuz it can't b just from streaming. I'm not sure??

25GB is from Tethering the rest is from my phone...

What is there NOT to understand.....???

LTE I`m not throttled, sometimes It is And I just restart my phone and its back! Greensboro NC I was throttled on LTE, But Raleigh, Wilmington nc I was NOT throttled and same for Greenville SC. HSPA+ I`m ALWAYS throttled after 5GB BUT I always use the wap.cingular APN and I`m not longer throttled.
