i am 99% sure... it is not tethering...
using your phone and connecting it to your TV via the MHL/HDMI cable.. has nothing to do with tethering! example: watching your own personal recorded video of your vacation.
Tethering is when you let your phone .. become a router for other devices to use Data/Internet from your carrier's service (sharing the data). the data is consumed by other devices.. not your phone.
so.. if your phone is watching netflix/youtube... it is not tethering.
and then you .. mirror the image on your phone via MHL/HDMI to your TV.. this is not tethering.
if you tether your ipad to your phone.. surf the net ..or watch netflix on your ipad... that is tethering.
on sprint.. you have unlimited data.. so it should not be an issue.
NOTE: but tethering that data to another device is a breach of contract
if you are on a carrier that has data plan... then will be charged if you go over the usage. but not charged for tethering.
