    I am brand new to Windows Phone. (been wanting to switch over for about 11 months) I come from android and will never think of going back! One thing I do miss is the free WiFi tethering. Is there any way I can override the internet sharing option, so I don't need to buy a tethering plan from AT&T.

    I in no way abuse tethering, I use maybe 400 MB a month while I tether

    Any help/information on this would be helpful, thank you.

    At this point no there is no way to really override the authentication done for tethering. I'm not really sure why AT&T cares since they no longer have an unlimited data plan.

    Good luck with that. Wish there was a way. Unfortunately this is one of those places iOS and Android pants WP.
