    Jailbreaking is not illegal, in fact not to long ago U.S courts ruled in favor of people being able to jailbreak their phones. When a phone is "jailbroken" it allows for open tethering as well allowing the device to be used even more so as a hot spot. So now you have one device with internet giving two or three more devices access to that same internet connection. The problem is AT&T feels as everyone of those devices should have to pay for data on its own. Thats just silly, its like your internet service provider charging you extra for all the devices you have connected to your wireless connection.

    OK, now AT&T is really being silly and very greedy. I wish that Nextel worked where I live.

    You mean Sprint? The iDen infrastructure is being phased out by Sprint.

    yeah, Sprint. It's strange when I use their coverage maps, Sprint is nowhere near. But if I use their Nextel map, it shows great coverage. That leaves me feeling that their coverage maps are just BS.
