I'm getting mixed information when trying to find a answer to this.
I have a Mytouch 4G with unlimited data, I don't believe I signed up for any tethering service. Any ways, usb tethering and portable hotspot seems to work fine, however, am I be charged if I turned them on?
I search google and some sites say tmobile will charge $14.99, did that take affect yet?
Theres a separate tethering add on for $15. If you can tether without the add-on, then just do it.
Verizon 4G LTE
San Francisco | San Jose
AT&T 4G LTE
I've been able to use Froyo's mobile hotspot feature on my phone without adding the $15 package. I've still managed to keep usage below 1GB, as I only use tethering as a backup when I have no other connectivity options.
However, most people have found that if they tether moderately, you can do it without the add-on.

So far this month I have used 11.7 GB and all of it was using my phone as a hotspot. No text message from T-Mobile yet, just dial up speeds after 6~8 GBs used.

As noted above, just tether until you get the message or tether a little more sparingly and you should be fine. They won't like AT&T force a tethering add-on to your account, at worst they will just block you from tethering until you sign up for the tethering add on.
I hope that when AT&T grandfathers, they will get this distinction right and let those of us without caps and tethering restrictions remain that way.
