    My question was “How can they tell?”,I think it’s a natural thing to ask… I’m curious. And mostly I am concerned about whether someone could be accosted by AT&T without actually being guilty of anything?

    Personally, I don’t tether but I have thought about using my phone’s hot-spot capability in the past.
