[T-Mobile] Unlimited data and tethering

They will not support tethering in the new unlimited data plan. Would they be able to tell you were tethering if you ran a proxy server in the phone? This would be an awesome deal if you could make this work.

The purported new unlimited plan does not allow mobile hotspots, which shares the data connection with multiple devices over Wi-Fi, but does not mention tethering. The two are not the same (in T-Mobile's mind).

I have had an unlimited data plan with T-Mobile since 2004, and tethering (via USB, Bluetooth and serial ) has never been an issue, as long as the handset supports it.

On some phones they block via the useragent of the browser. Plus T-Mobile at one point heavily port blocked. They could bring something like that. Time will tell.
