Carriers Cracking down on Android Tethering Apps

Carriers like AT&T, Sprint and Verizon have always charged customers a premium for the ability to tether their cellular phones to computers. People eventually found ways to get around the official tethering by jailbreaking their phones or installing 3rd party applications even though it violated the carriers terms. These special applications gave customers the tethering ability for free, however, the carriers have gotten wise and are cracking down on these tethering applications. One of the most popular tethering applications was PDAnet, which if you try to install now you'll see that "this item is not available on your carrier". This means that if you want to tether your smartphone, you'll need to purchase the tethering package to go along with the phone.
