Default ATT Tethering Warning

I know there are many of these threads but I am interested in a having an HONEST poll of all of those who got a tethering warning from ATT?

Please only participate if you've received the warning. And let's be honest guys. The poll is private. There are many stories that people got the warning by mistake. That they've never tethered.

If this is true, then their detection system stinks and we need to be careful and probably get ready to react in groups. We all have like less than 10 days before they will drop the hammer on our plans. So we need to be prepared.

I start with myself. I tethered sporadically during last year, but usage was always below 2GB. Last 2 months, went up to around 17gb, then 24gb, and then bam, the warning letter. But most of the data was consumed by the phone. .

Is there an announcement I might have missed that has relevance to your mentioned 10 days?

Back on my Note 1 I received a warning for tethering. I was using it very sporadically with the stock app after rooting, etc. I got a text and an email. Called them and played dumb. Said that if I didn't stop they would switch my own. Eventually flashed another Rom on my phone and tried again. Tethered quite a bit and never received another warning or had my plan changed.

Not sure how they are checking, but that's my story.

I got a warning text last month. I don't tether. I also didn't bother to check my usage.

I have no clue myself another 10 day thing either. Think we're all baffled on that statement!!

If any company changes your data plan without your knowledge:what:, then it can b reversed back to your original plan. If your on grandfathered plan. That's what you'll get our back to. Just as long as it state's that on the account, that you had it B4 they changed it out!!! All it takes is a quick phone call, or a visit to your local store. Always remember deal with a supervisor on the phone, and a Manger in the store. You'll get better results.
