    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.

    I can no longer tether. This started on the 7th.

    Doesn't matter what method or app I use all I get is local only.

    This bites.

    that was happening to me to begin with as well, but after a few tries it ended up connecting. i just tried wifi and usb tethering on a machine that ive never used before, and while it took a little longer than usual, it did connect to the normal internet without any other issues. im just using the native tether options in cm7.

    So today is 21 Dec. 2011 and I've still had no problem with tethering! If anyone has had issues with wifi tethering please post what device your tethering (I.e. PC, Mac, tablet) and the operating system. Lets see if we can figure this out!

    I've always been able to use my WiFi tethering on my phone, and I still am. But I am using a flashed Samsung Moment with a heavily modified ROM.

    Oh my. I hate that phone. Probably cause a long time ago there were flashing problems.
    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    If you need to buy something from (Ebay), please use this LINK every time and support the forum!

    Was able to tether on the ZTE Score via USB, and on the Optimus w/CM7 tethering option (wifi works, usb does not). Only reason I am tethered at all is because I just moved and gotta wait for internet installation, since cricket tethering is about as bad as a 28.8 dialup connection in my area.

    Yeah, picked it up for free a long time ago at Sprint, shortly before they figured out there was a GPS defect in most of them. Luckily, mine seems to be one of the good ones. The phone is a piece of junk compared to any Android that has come out in the last several months, but it still does everything I need it to do. Never had issues with the flash either. Guess I'm just amazing?

    I bought a new phone, encountered the tethering page. For other reasons, I went back to my old phone and tethering works fine. Maybe it's set into the newer phones?

    Do you use the wifi hot spot? And do you pay the $10 fee?

    If a software is simply relaying the packets how would cricket know? Not saying you shouldn't pay for the service. I good software out there for tether without rooting the handset is PDANET. It has a app (host) and client.

    I guess this is when proxies really come in handy.
