    I think if you keep to just surfing and an occasional download or two you'll be alright. Heavy usage might bring up a flag for them.

    I don't really tether, but I do have Open Garden. It's always worked well.

    You need to set up a user agent on your browser for tethering to work.

    I have had no problems connecting a Nexus 7 or a SGT 10.1.
