Are you saying that changing the APN to PTA will avoid detection? If AT&T is examining TTL to detect tethering, I don't think that changing the APN will make any difference. Has anybody tested and proven that changing the APN to PTA will work, or is that just a theory?
I am saying that the tethering uses a different apn. it uses the broadband apn named Entitlement. Using the PTA apn in conjunction with moderate use has worked for me over the last several years.

A brief & incomplete timeline of my love affair with mobile technology:
How do you change the APN? Is this a framework modification? Or do we just create a new APN called "Entitlement" with the same settings as the PTA APN?
On Motorola and HTC devices, this is done in one of the database files. The trick is finding out exactly where to make the change. I'd love to know, as I'd prefer to make the change there rather than in the framework.
This modification changes /system/framework/framework-res.apk. This file is core part of the ROM, so you can only a mod that was built specifically for your ROM. Most custom ROMs have this mod included, so there is no need to apply the mod if you're on a custom ROM. In fact, doing so is likely to remove features from the custom ROM or perhaps even break it.
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
