    What you are seeing is your phone tethering the internet connection.

    It connects to the internet via the phone instead of your ISP.
    If you do not have the "tethering plan" then the internet may not work because att is blocking you.

    Forgive me if I'm wrong but it sounds like you have already fixed the problem by switching it to media sync, mass storage, or none yeah?
