    I have an unlocked & rooted Mytouch, with a Straight Talk sim card (Tmobile network)

    I can use T-mobile "wifi hotspot" stock app fine, but I read somewhere that using a stock hotspot app can redirect your data traffic to the carrier so they know you're using it without a tethering plan.
    I don't know how true that is...

    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??
