    If you tether before the date will you be ok? OR will it stop working?

    You should be fine until that date, but if they stop early there isn't anything you can do about it other than add the $10 tethering add-on.

    You're not really supposed to tether anyway, so just enjoy it while it lasts.

    Its not worth it at all.. With so many more providers with unlimited plans available its a no brainer, cricket needs to go back to there 45 unlimited plan and get outta here with the tethering add on B.S to even compete, specially with the our economy on the brink of destruction..

    When you think about it, it's not really that bad. I don't think you can add on tethering on Verizon Wireless for just $10/month.

    $65/month, for unlimited everything on Android, and tethering, is good, in my opinion.

    With the extra $10 do they allow more than 1gb of usage on android plan?

    Nevermind... It does not add any extra data usage to your allowance. So, it is still 1gb (which I regularly hit WITHOUT tethering by the 10th each month). So, unless you are using a cricket branded phone this is not worth it.

    Does anyone know how this block actually works? I'd be interested in trying for a workaround for people who don't want to pay the extra $10 a month. (I personally think it's a bit bogus to charge $10 a month to use a feature built into the phone without any added bandwidth.) While it's still cheaper than most of the alternatives, I feel like users paying the $10 a month should get more bandwidth at the very least.

    its 9:20 pm mst in Denver on 12/7, im writing this post in firefox on my win 7 laptop, wifi tethered to my evo 4g running cm7, im on the android plan and have the *228 prls and settings. ill check back tommorow.

    i made a post earlier in the forums about the some of the theory behind tether detection.


    PSA: Take It Easy, AT&T Isn't Targeting Unauthorized Android Tethering (And May Never)




    Some tethering applications for iOS make use of alternative methods and route tethered traffic through the phone's normal data APN, but by and large, most jailbreakers stick with the stock application because it's easy to use and doesn't require any complicated setup. In fact, many iPhone users jailbreak for the sole purpose of avoiding AT&T's tethering fees (for why, see next section). These are the people AT&T's is going after.

    Android tethering, on the other hand, isn't set up to route data through an alternate APN when the phone is in tethering mode - meaning AT&T would actually have to scan packets to determine whether or not you're tethering. This requires diversion of AT&T's resources (read: money), while identifying iPhone tethering is markedly simpler (read: cheap). AT&T's Android device population is also relatively small, while iPhone plans represents a very large chunk of AT&T's total revenue. But that's not the only reason AT&T is sticking it to iPhone users.


    TTL modification to cloak tethered packets - let's make them work harder to catch us. - MacRumors Forums




    The solution for detection of PC-tethered devices involves a combination of signature and heuristic-based policy rules. The first mechanism was detection based on PC application signatures. The other detection method was a heuristic mechanism which used a combination of multiple correlated conditions aggregated over a configurable period of time that a subscriber device can trigger. The conditions that were agreed upon with the service provider customer for the heuristic mechanism included categories such as 1) number of simultaneous sessions, 2) HTTP user-agent headers, 3) protocols that were likely to originate from a PC, 4) device type, and 5), device screen size. When the correlated conditions threshold was reached, the device was detected as being tethered.

    The odds that Cricket will devote any resources to detecting tethering are slim to none IMO. They rolled this out for all the folks who were asking for it. Most people think tethering is something t=you have to pay for or has to be turned on by the carrier, so thats what they did.
    I seriously doubt we'll see very many threads on "Cricket blocked my tethering!!"

    You should be able to connect the USB cable to transfer files, but not for tethering.

    Same thing happened to me. I have a rooted Htc Evo 3d flashed to cricket on the 55 dollar plan. I opened three different internet browsers and now they all say the same thing to pay 10 dollar for tethering. Does this mean i now have to pay 65 just to use the internet on my phone? I don't even use tethering.

    That's not good. That's a big mistake if people aren't going to be able to get on the phone's web browser now. Hopefully they will fix it quickly.
