How AT&T Tracks Unauthorized Tethering & How To Prevent Them From Catching You

I’m sure most of you Jailbroken iPhone users who use MyWi or any other form of tethering that bypasses Apple’s (semi)new Personal Hotspot feature, in order to gain cost free tethering (other than the cost of the Jailbroken app itself).

Comparison: Difference Between The Official White iPhone 4 and The Leaked White iPhone 4

The reason behind the delay of Apple’s white iPhone 4 was always thought to be related to an issue making the white coloring work with a couple of key parts of the handset – particularly the proximity sensor.

You could actually say that the Verizon iPhone 4 and iPad 2 are already 4G, all Apple would have to do is turn on the HSPA part of the Gobi 14.4 chips, well, according to AT&T. Joanna Stern pointed out that as of today, AT&T has started calling regular old 14.4Mbps HSPA devices “4G” in its latest marketing campaign. Until recently, the pseudo (or fake) “4G” was reserved for HSPA+ on T-Mobile and AT&T which reaches up to 21Mbps.
