Then on the right side, it shows "Phone Tethering & WIFI Sharing" for $14.99 per month!

OH NO!!!
Looks like Tmo is preparing for the "AT&T-mobile" merge..

Default What to remove to make tethering work

Okay I did not read thbrought the whole thread but I see that you guys figured out that you need to be rooted. Once rooted just remove tethering manager from titaium backup pro app and all is good. I use my SGS2 to tether all the time getting speeds of 30+ mbps!!!! And no extra charges. Sorry if you guys figured it all out already I dont have time to go throught the whole thread.
