    This would be nice if someone had a work around. The upgrade to gingerbread killed my teather too. I decided to rooted it and then installed barnacle but that doesn't work.

    From what I read PDAnet with USB is all we can use for now....

    This was a severe disappointment for me at first, but at least PDAnet still works. My 12+ hour days at work will be really long if I can't use my laptop.

    Actually I don't think this is true. I download about 20+gigs off my data plan and never had an issue. I think that what happens is when you tether you give your laptop or pc an ip address from AT&T which is different than that of the phone. And they can see that not just the downloads. Cause I used to tether alot(80+gigs through normal use and tether and they warned me. I have stopped since and haven't had an issue like I said.

    When you stream video's or music all day even on just the phone you can burn up over a gig a day easy....

    they warned me on my iphone multiple times and I called tech support and denied-denied-denied. I was on the phone for over an hour with them and they told me that if their system automagically adds tethering to your plan, they can't revert it back to unlimited. I told them that if they were gonna do that to me then they need to let me out of my contract early without any ETFs. Thing is, I only tethered maybe 500 mb a month, and now I don't do it at all on my atrix. They figure out who is tethering by APN's, not by data usage. But it's good to hear that PDAnet still works. Anyone know if PDAnet hides data use from AT&T?
