In Mexico, Telcel, did not even let it enabled. When you go to Settings, Network, there is no tethering option.

How can they tell if you are tethering or not??

Interesting question, probably by the amount of data used.

Different APN. All they have to do actually, is remove the alternative APN from the user's profile, and voila. But what stops users from using the iphone main APN as their connection? That I don't know. Maybe once I update to 3.0 I'll be able to comment further.

Well this is interesting. So you buy an iPhone 3GS with a 2 year contract and then they will stop your contract because you're tethering? Thats great... You dont have to pay the penalization fee for stopping the contract right?
Go ahead O2

Not necessarily.....They are terminating the contract because YOU BROKE the terms and conditions....you need to read O2's contract to see if you liable for the rest of the contract

Still stupid, your paying for your connection, as if the plans & phones are expensive enough.
