MyWi: AT&T Killing Unlimited Date plans from Jailbroken iPhone

If there is an application that irritates more than anything else our operators, it is MyWi  and sisters. They can transform the iPhone into a modem in order to share its Internet connection without paying the option normally charged by the operator. In the end, only the user there's something. But soon.

An AT&T spokesperson has confirmed this, but not August 11th as a hard cutoff date, saying:
Earlier this year, we began sending letters, emails, and text messages to a small number of smartphone customers who use their devices for tethering but aren’t on our required tethering plan.  Our goal here is fairness for all of our customers.  (This impacts a only small percentage of our smartphone customer base.)
The letters outline three choices:
1) Stop tethering and keep their current plan (including grandfathered unlimited plan)
2) Proactively call AT&T or visit our stores and move to the required tethering plan
3) Do nothing and we’ll go ahead and add the tethering plan on their behalf — after the dated noted in their customer notification

Thus the U.S. operator has decided to take the reins in hand, never to let it go. Soon, AT&T will automatically change the data plan user applications such fond MyWi without warning at préalabe. Moreover, it will be the package 2Go/month $45. Finally, the option (official) will be part of modem or $20 extra. In other words, it's going to yell in the cottages![source]
