Explain this At&t. So, you can do anything you want with an iPhone on the unlimited plan as long as you aren't tethering. Or tether, use the same amount of data (say 10 gigs for this example both tethered and not). What difference does it make? Why the hell should you get money for tethering? You deliver the bits from point A to B regardless of whether or not it's tethered. You did nothing to make the tethering capability possible, so if anything shouldn't Apple get the $20 since they made it?
If anyone gets the letter, start downloading everything possible from the interwebz. Rack up terabytes of usage.

Because the odds of you using 10GB of data on an iPhone are slim... Those odds sound much better when you're on a computer.
Believe me - I don't condone this behavior and I HATE AT&T with a passion. Yes. Literally hate.. Pure, scathing, dark hatred. They are criminals.
My solution? I use Verizon... it's nearly impossible to download even 2GB of data in a month with their 3G network!
Really though I use WiFi mostly. I was hoping to see if I could keep it under 250MB and see if I could switch plans but alas... If only Verizons 2GB plan actually cost less... sheesh... Or if they had a 1GB plan for like $15.. I'd totally do it. Not happily but it's cheaper and it fits my needs better. That is, as long as they continue to have the slowest 3G network ever.

When i got the letter back then, I downloaded about 50gb in a week or so just downloading steam games over and over again. 2 days before the deadline I called in and told them i stopped tethering. Good times..........
