ATT Tethering Text MessageAT&T has started sending email and text messages to users they believe are using unofficial tether methods on their iPhones, according to iPhone community ModMyi.

Some folks who’ve received the messages, however, “don’t tether at all; it looks like AT&T is targeting users who have high data usage. As it turns out, [tethering app] MyWi shows up as 0 tether bytes” on your device’s data usage—which is to say, your iPhone isn’t recording MyWi activity as tethering. (Never used MyWi? Here’s how to set it up.)

Any readers run into this yet? Sounds like messages just started going out yesterday, but if you get anything, let’s hear about it—and whether or not you’re actually using a tethering method without paying AT&T for the privilege—in the comments.
