Thanks to everyone for the information.
To garys_2k: Yes, I do not work for AT&T.
But wouldn't the ISP be able to see your surfing even if you are in a VPN? I know there are some types of encryption steps that you can take to prevent even your ISP from knowing your internet activity. But I think just any VPN will not do.
It seems to me that some people can see my surfing even when I use an encrypted VPN network.
If you use a VPN then the only thing the ISP can see is that some gibberish is going back and forth between your IP and the IP that corresponds to the VPN site. They cannot see the actual contents of that traffic or where you're connected to via the VPN. In other words, they'll know you are communicating via a VPN but won't know to whom you're using the VPN to get to, or what traffic you're creating back and forth to that server.
