However, Straight Talk doesn't have such a plan, nor would I be willing to pay for one if they did.
So maybe I'm in the clear, since I'm not a Tmobile customer anyway.
Does the Wireless Tether app (for rooted phones) bypass this possible "redirect"

Or in any case, is there a major difference between the 2 apps??
