I'm curios as to how AT&T can definitively know the difference between someone that's tethering, and someone that uses their smartphone more like a computer. I personally use my EVO to browse full websites, I rarely use mobile browser versions. Not to mention I have done some very large file downloads using phone, like 100mb plus. I know the tethering app I use is running NAT, so it shows as just my phone to sprint. I guess there is certain things your pc will access a phone will not. Such as a windows machine accessing Microsoft for automatic updates, I don't recall what the sub domain is but could be tracked. With this said is there something I'm missing, or is AT&T really monitoring traffic in that kinda detail?
