    Its your own risk to tether as a fair warning.

    But to answer your question, if its a branded device, AT&T, etc, they have activation checks baked in their software to check for tethering access on your account, meaning of course since your not using a actual AT&T account, it won't work. You will get a dial 611 or call so and so to purchase a tethering data plan. Google is your best bet. Some apps on Google play Store can bypass this check. Others can't. Its a per device basis. Some require more tweaking which requires rooting, I know two of my devices, one bypasses the check with a simple app from Google Play story, while the other required some manufacturer code to be entered to get to a special programming menu to disable the activation tether screen.
