    tethering is the fastest way you get booted of STRAIGHT TALK and whatever reserve you have is gone on smoke.

    If you tether, you're asking for the boot.
    I will have questions for you.
    Don't be afraid to ask me questions.

    Tethering my Straight Talk Samsung Proclaim

    Easiest way to tether is tetherme on iPhone. I've been tethering off and on a gig or two at a time for a year with no problems....BUT when you get booted off (with no replacement att sims available) don't create a thread about how your account got terminated

    I think that you're more likely to get help on these types of issues at androidforums.com or xda-developers.com.

    I've never seen anyone report that they were booted from ST for tethering. However, tethering is prohibited by their Terms of Service. Most people who are booted or have their data shut-off or throttled have reported that they used too much data.

    Tethering my Straight Talk Samsung Proclaim

    Exactly. It's the amount of data used. Though I must say (and this is why I like a vague, no predetermined data limit, during the last hurricane I was traveling around the state to places with no power (no wifi) and I used around 4.5GB in two weeks with only one warning call after the fact. But I'm sure if you abuse data constantly that will be what gets you in trouble. And computers and tablets pull lots of data ..

    Tethering my Straight Talk Samsung Proclaim

    I had FoxFi on my phone and used it very sparingly for tablet use when on the road, then a few weeks back I got a update from either ST or Verizon, the update buggered the phone so I called ST and they fixed the problem getting my service back on in short order, but the update removed my ability to use FoFi. So app removed, I think many of the MVNOs are making it where these apps just can't be used.

    Tethering is a premium service that the carriers charge extra for. They don't like it when you mess with premium services such as your call forwarding settings also.

    It absolutely is. But that's the beauty of companies like ST that let you (for the most part) tether and cut some corners....instead of sticking a knife in you each time you want to use a feature. With a tiny amount of data being as ridiculously expensive as it is on post paid providers, tethering should be included....maybe an escort service with it too...then it would be fair.
