    This phone is immune to the Tethering Nasty Gram

    Hi y'all, been hot spotting like crazy on an experimental line. I’ve been trying to break it, get terminated, but nothing yet.
    The phone is the international version of the Note 8...the one with the Exynos processor. Hotspots illegally right out of the box. Tried the 5 gig plan, and then switched to unl extra...no warnings nothing yet. I’ve hotspotted out to MacBook, windows , and iOS.

    Obviously there's a time element eventualities involved.

    Be assured, you will eventually get the warning/cut off notice.

    As a USA citizen I have the right to criticize my government. My thanks for this is endless in magnitude.

    The first rule of tethering club is: you don’t talk about tethering club!

    My conclusion is that it's too soon to draw a conclusion.

    I have the US version and I run unlocked firmware. Mine works fine too. S8 and S8+ same deal. It's the unlocked firmware since all US hardware is identical since the S7.

    Indeed it is too soon. I had three lines that were terminated after more than a year, but all within weeks of each other. One of these lines used a substantial amount of data (~500GB per month, probably 80% of that data of was uploads of video/photos/outgoing data for live streams), one was a nephew that was mostly XBOX Live and some YouTube, and the the third rarely even tethered 10GB. They all got whacked just the same, lol.

    wow so you got the hammer? Not too surprised given your heavy volume.

    I have my Verizon pre-paid line primarily for the benefit of hot spot. My cricket hot spot is for back up only in case my Verizon line is too slow (happens more than I'd like). So I rarely use hotspot on my cricket line, to keep from running afoul of the official rules.
