I suppose its about time, allow me to introduce you to the beginning of the end for Androids “wild wild west” behavior. Is this a bad thing? NO! it is NOT! If you didn’t pay for the ability to tether then why should you be allowed to do so? In the real world this is called STEALING!
It amazes me how some people are actually angry about this. Yet, they still seem to some how get angry when the cell tower they are connected to comes to a crawl because everyone else around them is stealing as well. Good for you google! keep it up.
