Does AT&T Wireless place restrictions (or higher costs) on users who use "tether"  their IPhones to their laptops to provide wireless internet connectivity?

I understand that this process was once virtually unrestricted but that now AT&T Wireless places restrictions or has extra fees associated with people who do this.

Is this true? Are there any other wireless (cell phone) carriers who don't have any restrictions or extra charges associated with people who "tether"  their IPhones to their laptops to provide wireless internet connectivity?

I use MiWI 4.0 and AT&T doesn't charge extra for you using it. however if you have one of the new data plans that limit you to 2GB per months, then you run the risk of exceeding it and paying extra charges for that. If you have unlimited then you're golden
