    You don't remove the capability of tethering, you simply don't access it. Are you saying that you have never used tethering, but still AT&T is warning you to stop doing it?

    Look in your settings under wireless and networks>mobile hotspots ... make sure you don't have this selected. I don't know the exact switch on your phone as I have a custom rom installed and the menu and capabilities differ from what you have.

    AFAIK the way AT&T is guessing that you are tethering is because A: someone is using your phone to tether or B: you use a lot of data like over 5 GB using web browsers like Skyfire that mimic a PC web interface. To double check, are you rooted, are you running a rom, do you have any tethering apps on your phone and does anyone else use your phone? From my time online and in the forums, you are the only person I have heard of that is not tethering that got the "stop tethering" message from AT&T; not saying you are tethering, it is just wierd ya know? Maybe you just need to call AT&T and be like what the heck?

    Good point James. Just call them and politely ask what's going on with that message you were sent.

    I have called and they fixed it. I am rooted and rommed with darkside running 1.4 oc. I haven't tethered for about 6 months and this is the 2nd time. I do use lots of data average is 10-15gb a month. I use adownloader often and every now and then dolphin browser. Normally use stock one.

    I have to tell ya I'm surprised they fixed it. 10-15Gb is really a huge amount of data a month when the average is 4 to 5Gb.

    I agree. Are you now being billed for the data usage by AT&T?

    That is it, the amount of data is a trigger (even if it is false) that you are tethering and why AT&T sent the message. Glad they fixed it though
