If you're worried about it just get a VPN that supports port forwarding. I think everyone should have one regardless of whether you are currently able to download torrents over mobile data or not. Just because they aren't throttling you or blocking you does not mean they are not tracking you. Now granted, it will probably be a while before they can effectively police 4G networks, just because of mechanics involved, but they have regular broadband connections down pat. I I know for a fact my home ISP (Cincinnati Bell) regularly sends out warning letters with the exact title of the files you downloaded. They mostly do it for HBO. I have yet to hear of them actually going forward with prosecuting anybody, but my knowledge is limited. I guarantee its only a matter of time before the MPAA and RIAA find a way to strongarm the mobile carriers into policing for torrents. Better to just have a VPN now and not get caught with your pants down. I use privateinternetaccess.com, they support port forwarding on their Canada servers and they are based in the US, so they don't log (contrary to popular belief, overseas VPN servers are not more safe, the US has no mandatory data retention laws, the EU requires logging). They have an Android app based on OpenVPN you can use or you can connect natively in Android settings using the PPTP ipSec protocol. I have never noticed any reduction in speed, and I download my torrents through a server in Toronto. Six dollars a month. There's no excuse. That's just my 2¢.
