AT&T Cracking Down on Unofficial iPhone Tethering Users

OSXDaily reports:

Customers are being notified that their service plans need updating to subscribe to a tethering plan, and that they will be automatically subscribed to a DataPro 4GB package that costs an additional $45 per month if they continue to tether. In the email, AT&T also notes that if customers discontinue the use of tethering, no changes will be made to their plan.

That’s not quite right. It’s not $45 “in addition” to whatever you’re paying for your data plan now — it’s $45 instead of your current data plan.
